Launch app in backround without stealing window focus

Post by xdauser » 26 Jul 2019 08:49

Good Day Everyone,

Is there any way to launch an app in the background silently without stealing window focus? What I am trying to achieve is keep my navigation on screen and launch the music player in background without changing focus on it. In this particular case, I am talking about google maps and playerpro. Thanks a lot for any feedback.

I don't think there is a way to launch app background, unless it support broadcast receiver. Most media players can receive broadcast intent, especially the media button. You can try Control Audio Player, use the play/pause and send to the playerpro. No app switching happen, and the music should have started background.
