Hello to all and Happy New Year everyone.
I hope there is an Android expert somewhere among us who can offer some advice.
I apologize for the length of this post but can find no other way to explain it effeciently.
I am currently using a Kospet Prime_SE.
I am using an Emergency Alert app installed on the watch. This app notifies you on your device (phone or watch) with an audible ‘Siren’ sound which plays continuously in a loop until you tap “stop”.
The purpose of this paid app is to alert me to any serious situation where my wife or family member may be in serious trouble needing immediate help and support. If they send me a one-word text (e.g. ‘Help’) … that particular word is seen by the Emergency Alert app and thw app immediately launches a built-in Siren sound file in a non-stop loop. (This siren sound loop basically guarantees you won;t miss the message (especially on a watch).
The app installed fine on my Prime_SE which is running Android 7.1 (the app checks required permissions and gives you a thumbs up if they are correct)
The app works fine, EXCEPT - when the ‘help’ text message comes in, the watch plays it’s own normal default notification sound and the Emergency Alert siren sound plays only once for 2 secs without any looping. (the siren sound file is hard coded in the Emergency app to play repeatedly until it is stopped by the user)
Can anyone suggest why the stock media player is preventing the hard-coded siren sound to loop as it’s programmed to do?
Is it the stock media player causing this or perhaps a system setting somewhere?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance to all.
