I'm digging into background audio playing for iOS Apps. I do see a bunch of examples for doing continuous audio playing for background Apps. I wanted to add walkie-talkie like features to my current App, which would need the following:
- The App is able to access sockets in the background to establish a constant connexion to receive audio, or something similar.
- The App is able to play audio spontaneously without having to be part of a consistent audio stream, even if the App has not been active for some time.
- The App audio being played will interrupt any current playing music on the iOS device.
Do iOS devices give programmers the capabilities to program this sort of thing currently?
