My Question or Issue
I'd like to report a bug with the podcasts player on iOS. The current podcast time is often not tracked correctly. Examples:
1) Listen to a podcast. Kill the app. Restart. Very often the timestamp will be like 5 minutes back of what it should be. 10 seconds would be acceptable, 5 minutes is not.
2) Listen to a podcast. Pause with airpods pro. Do something else for an hour. Play. The timestamp will be incorrect, like previously.
3) Listen to a podcast. Use airpods pro back gesture. Details below.
This is reproducible nearly all the time. Repro steps:
1. Start a podcast
2. Listen for 10 minutes
3. Triple-click airpods pro
4. Instead of going back 15 seconds, the time will go back for a random duration. Sometimes 15 seconds, sometimes 1 minute, sometimes 3 minutes.
Spotify app is up to date. This bug happens only when the app runs in background.
None of these issues happen in Apple Podcasts app.
