Following audio track will not play when in lock screen

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 43
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): all

Hi all, I’m working on an audio app using Expo AV for playback. Our audio files are quite small and play in sequence. But I’ve just noticed that the audio won’t play the second track when the phone is in the lock screen

I.e. track 1 is playing, I lock the screen, track 1 continues until end. track 2 doesn’t start. I unlock the phone then track 2 begins.

This seems like a limitation of Expo AV and not my code (hence I haven’t included it).

This issue is killing me. Any thoughts on how to solve?
