You asked and we listened! Background play and autoplay are now available for both our iOS and Android apps.
Go to Settings on your CuriosityStream mobile app to enable these features.
- What is background play?
Background play is the ability to continue listening to shows while the app is not opened on your screen. With background play enabled, you can select the show you would like to watch and rest assured that the content audio will still play even when you open an important text message. This feature is also perfect for running, cooking, or doing anything else you would normally do while listening to a podcast, music, or audiobook. Enjoy the art of multi-tasking while absorbing factual entertainment!
- What is autoplay?
Autoplay is the ability to automatically queue up the next episode in a series or a suggested show after you finish watching a show to completion. No need to determine what to watch next or interrupt the flow of mindlessly watching something mindful :) Watching factual content has never been so easy!
Please note that these features may be enabled based on your personal preference. The default setting for these features is disabled. Be sure to enable them to start enjoying background play and autoplay on your mobile device today!
