expo-av background audio / lock screen

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version:40
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all):iOS

I have my audio playing in background on iOS with expo-av, but the lock screen does not report the app is playing the audio. Is there any progress with this module? There does not seem to be a lot of advancements in this module.


Hey @marcpope, unfortunately I don’t have any news regarding updates to this functionality. We’re aware that the AV modules are in need of updates and attention but with us being a small team we’ve had to prioritize other work in the meantime.
