Little survey on "Music recognition" app
Hello everyone ! I would like to make a little survey here. Recently, the Music recognition app has stopped working for me. It used to work perfectly on FP2, and now that I have Oneplus One, the record button is unresponsive. There's an open issue on Github, and this is known. What is not, though, is why this is happening. Strong suspicions on Morph and Qt, since this is a html5 app requiring microphone access, but then why did it use to work ? I would like to get out of the way the device-specific aspect of this bug, and if different people with different phones could give their feedback on the app at the moment, I'd be grateful. Thanks.
@emphrath Indeed, same issue on Redmi Note 7. Works on Volla and Nexus 5.
@stanwood it works on Volla? Interesting.
As far as I investigated this issue:
The prompt to allow microphone access to the app came untill a certain OTA. Then it stopped working and the prompt did not appear anymore.
On a device, where the microphone was already authorized, until the prompt stopped appearing, the app kept still working.
On any device, where the app got installed new the mic authorization prompt does not appear and the app does not work.
I am not talking of this one btw.:
@luksus Well, I just tried on Vollaphone right now (OTA-19 stable) and it worked...
@stanwood what exactly did work?
Did you remove the app, checked in system-settings/security/app-permissions that it is not listed under microphone anymore, reinstall it and then it worked?
Volla's not exactly on the same update branch, is that right ? That would explain why it still works ! @stanwood if you can confirm it works on an (updated) nexus 5 we could safely assume it's not related to morph or Qt and is indeed a device-specific bug
@luksus I just launched the app, allow mic access and press the green bottom. It started to record normally.
What Luksus explained is that up to a certain point new app installation worked fine.
But now only previously enabled apps are working not new installation.
If you can take this risk you can try to:
- Remove the app
- Clean the data and cache
- Reinstall the app
If Luksus is right it shouldn't work anymore for you.
@Luksus do you have any idea on what was previously done to allow the mic or are you trying to constraint the issue to some recent changes ?
@applee I see. Unfortunately Vollaphone belongs to my spouse and I don't want to mess it up...
Will try on the Nexus 5, but it's indeed annoying if it breaks the functionality.
Clean data and cache from the app with UTTT you mean ?
If yes that must be done before uninstalling as UTTT must find the app in its app list to do so.
You can also do it manually by deleting the proper directories
But yeah if you want to do it with UTTT you should definitely do it before removing the app.
