Possible to play app sound when minimized?


Jan 27, 2021
Hey people :)
I am playing RuneScape on my mobile phone and was wondering if it is possible to keep the app sound playing while tabbing out and using another app.
I really like to afk some things while reading something online for example. To do so it's pretty important to hear the game sound though.
Couldn't figure it out myself yet so any help is much appreciated :)

I know media apps, like music and podcast players, those can play their sound in the background while using other apps. And I wouldn't want a media app that couldn't. However games usually don't play sounds when in background.AFAICT. I'm sure it's something that's set by the developers, when they make their apps. In the case of RuneScape, that would be something the Jagex devs would need to do. Maybe worth you emailing them about it.
