Expected behaviour:

When connecting to Android Auto (wired or wireless) to have Antenna Pod continue my current podcast or when I switch applications to have my lasted played ( now playing) still be available at it last play point and resume. Ever time you switch apps or open the app now playing goes away and you have to manually select what podcast you are playing last.

I need to manually go to queue and select the episode I was listening to to continue where I was.

Is anyone willing to test out a debug build that should address this bug

I’ve never had it auto play (which is fine by me) BUT I do have to go into the queue and select the podcast I was previously listening to. It used to keep the currently playing podcast on the now playing screen so all you had to do is hit play.

I’m experiencing this issue as well. I have to select the last podcast I was listening to when on Android auto. Running android 14 on a S23+

I can confirm the same - annoying - behavior.
I’m sure (or better: I hope) that authors will soon solve this problem. :smiley:

Same here. It’s not a modern car with Android auto un my case but an older connecition to the phone vía bluetooth. And every time I stop the car to refuel or anything, the podcast won’t resume automatically, I’m forced to do it from the phone itself which is annoying.
This does not happen with other apps, would be nice to have it solved

Any update on this? It seems to be a pretty basic UI requirement for most people.

There is a 3.3 release which will partially address this bug. Release date to be determined still.

Thanks. I see that it was updated to 3.2.0 a couple of days ago, so looking forward to 3.3.
