[expo-av][sdk33]Audio.Recording won't work after updating to sdk33

I followed the step-by-step to upgrade to SDK33, including changing the imports from expo to the modular library, in the Audio case, importing from expo-av and running expo install expo-av and all that. But it simply doesn’t work.
To make sure, I downgraded to SDK32 (stashed all the changes, removed node_modules and ran npm install again) and everything works fine.

Any ideas? Anybody else running into similar issues with the Audio API?

Hey @esdrasevt,

Can you elaborate on what you mean by “it doesn’t work”? Is there an error presented?



I recently updated the “audio-recording-example” app (from SDK v27?) to SDK v34. I can’t remember exactly which changes were required for updating from v32 to v33, but off the top of my head, maybe you need to add a couple of keys to Audio.setAudioModeAsync()?

@wodin that did the trick! :clap:
The only thing I was missing was adding the key staysActiveInBackground to the object passed to Audio.setAudioModeAsync()
Thank you so much!

No problem, but next time it will be easier for someone to help if you post details like error messages etc. :laughing:

You just got lucky this time because I ran into problems upgrading an audio app recently and thought they might have been similar to your problem.
