Play Music and Capture Pokemon on your Android at the same time.
My son was wandering the neighborhood with his friends this weekend playing Pokemon Go. He thought it would be a great idea to roam around while broadcasting his playlist at the same time. Well, it wasn't as straightforward as he thought it would be and we had to tinker around for a bit in order to get it to work. Here are some tips if you too want to stream your favorite music while collecting pokemon.
It depends on what music player you use. For example, playing music via Spotify and then switching over to Pokemon Go seems to work without an issue.
The first thing you'll want to do is to start your favorite music player and hit Play. Then go back to the home screen and launch Pokemon Go. At this point, the game stopped the player and took over the audio on my son's phone. After he starting playing for a bit, we went back to the home screen and brought up the music player. You can also simply task switch using the button on the bottom of your Android device. You should also be able to pull down the notification tray as your music player should include controls to play/pause your music.
That's it. After a few minutes, we got his music streaming (from InternetDJ of course), and they were able to play without a problem.
