Mobile Audio Status

Any idea when the team could let us listen to podcasts, music, etc? All due respect to the audio engineers for the game, but on mobile, I don’t think most people want to listen to your work. Almost unplayable

the game would crash if music was enabled
they found a bug that would cause the game to crash if another app was playing music

“The team is aware that sounds from other apps can no longer be played while playing on mobile. This was an intentional change made as a temporary solution to a bug with background sounds causing crashes. A permanent solution to the bug that also allows for other apps to play sounds is scheduled for a future patch”

from the known issues thread

Crippling issue for a lot of folks who use their phones for anything other than hearthstone. The idea that muting everything else was the solution, rather than just gutting hs sound until fixed, why? For who?
