[Bug report] Android AudioFocus stumbles

Quick Android internals bug report, you seem to either

  • request the AudioFocus too late or
  • abandon AudioFocus too early

How to reproduce:

  • Plan a route
  • Play some music
  • Click on “start” navigation button 5 or 6 times, so that the voice tells you to “in 50 meters do XY” repeatedly
  • From the 3rd or 4th time on the music ducking is all over the place, sometimes ducks when she’s not talking, sometimes does not duck when she’s talking

Expected behvaiour:

  • Abandon focus only when all voice commands are truly done speaking


  • Android 9, Kurviger 1.7 (bug is probably much older)

I know, probably low prio, but just saying, could annoy somebody in the future

Thanks for the report!

That doesn’t seem like normal procedure, more like stress test!
e.g. open / close repeatedly the laptop lid to see if can break. :slightly_smiling_face:

Nevertheless improvements are always in the program.
Have you seen something strange during regular navigation?

If I know one thing from my Android career it’s that anything that looks like a stress test to us Devs, will happen once for one user and that user will write a 1 star review and never change it.

As I said, low prio, but if you know what it is, I’d advise fixing it even if it’s an edge case, before it makes trouble
