Which OS are you on? And which version of NPR One do you have?

Is a setting to only stream while on wifi in the works? How about an ability to cache 30 minutes on wifi to take on my commute?

Congrats on getting another shout out at I/O this year! Well done!

Oh, and embarrassing admission time....I for the longest time had an issue with saying "Ok, Google, listen to NPR" and then nothing would happen until I opened the app and then hit the play button. I couldn't for the LIFE of me figure out why this was the only app that didn't do what it was supposed. Well, turns out you fine devs put a toggle for "play automatically when opening the app" in at some point. Toggle that on and my problems are solved! Ha ha, it's the little things.

App's been great for me! Well done.

When connected to my 2013 Escape via Bluetooth, many of the broadcasts are skipped automatically about 30 seconds in. Once it starts skipping, it does it to each successive story making the app unusable.

I use other audio apps through the car with no problem, so the car can be ruled out.

I have a podcast episode in NPR One on pause. Now whenever someone calls me, after I hang up, NPR One starts playing and I need to pause it again. Very annoying, since it starts playing in my pocket for no reason.

Thanks for the feedback. We're rolling out 1.6.7.0 which should address these issues. Until you receive the update, you can prevent this by swiping the Notification away while paused.

Another issue is resuming. If I pause what I'm listening to on my chromecast, when I click play again, it will start over at the beginning locally. Similarly if I decide to switch to the chromecast in the middle of an episode, it starts over at the beginning. It would make more sense for the app to be aware of where you were and ask you if you want to resume.

It would be awesome if there was a "rewind 15 seconds" button on the lock screen controls. Quite often there is a loud sound in my environment (mostly while driving) or the person in the podcast mumbled and I need to rewind to hear what they said. Fumbling around with unlocking the phone to rewind 15 seconds (especially while driving) is a pain. My phone is a Galaxy S3 (I535) running Android 4.4.2.

I actually upgraded my phone to the Galaxy S7 about a week ago and now I have the "rewind 15 seconds" feature on my lock screen. I don't know if that's due to an update to NPR One or if that feature is only available on newer phones (like my new one).

New bug in v1.6.5.5 - when I have NPR One paused and my phone makes any sound (ring tone, text tone, alarm tone, charging tone), when the sound is over it immediately unpauses NPR One. It can be embarrassing, annoying and inconvenient. My phone is a Galaxy S3 (I535) running Android 4.4.2.

v.1.6.5.5 new bug in this version - whenever it goes to my local station donate blurb the app freezes.  seems like it is trying to load something missing.  I have to explicitly click a story then hit FF to make it come back alive.  then again after that story.

The lock screen controls no longer function at all since the first update that included the catch up and resume feature. No subsequent update has fixed the problem. I'm running Android 4.4.2 on a Samsung Galaxy S3 (SCH-I535). I've been loving the app otherwise.

Good news! As of the latest update, the lock screen controls work again. Thanks for fixing it.

Hello,

I have an iPhone 5c version 9.3.1 (13E238). I recently updated the NPROne app. In all the older versions the app would start up and automatically play the hour's national news headlines followed by my local headlines. It would then proceed to a random story. The new version remembers the place in the last story I listened to - even after the app is shut down.

This may have been an improvement but I found the automatic national and local news upon start-up to be a good feature. Is this still an option?

If this is NOT a "settings" option is there a button or something that would allow me to start the app and skip to the hourly news?

Thank you in advance

When I listened to the "Start up" podcast (S3ep1 Gimlet media) it jumps half way out of the program after the commercial break en starts a new item without finishing the original podcast.

About this community

Hello and welcome to the NPR One Mobile Testers Community. We will be releasing beta versions of NPR One to this community to give you sneak peak at our latest work, and to ask for your help is giving us feedback. While the features in the NPR One beta app have been tested while in development, the app is not release ready, therefore crashes are possible. One of the advantages of being on the beta list is you’ll be offered new features well in advanced of users. Look for announcements and information about our testing to be here. Thank you for being part of this awesome venture!

I would love a widget option that I can put on my Android device. The 4x1 player controls would be lovely.

The Nerdette podcast isn't loading on NPR One on either wifi or data. Can you fix it?

What the hell is going on with Chromecast? Why does my galaxy 6 not cast anymore.

Are you casting to a Chromecast dongle, or to a 3rd party device (like a Roku)?

Seems to be working OK between my Galaxy S6 (Marshmallow) and my Roku 3. NPR One plays fine. So does Alto, for that matter.

App is sucking up all my Data and I'm going to have to stop using it. Need the ability to cache via Wifi asap.

I listened to it about 45 minutes a day during commute

I get old stories as it is now, but if you give the option then your users can choose their preference, I also need to stop using the app due to accidental data usage. I want the app to be forced to only use wifi, even if you can't get caching optimized.

Would be great if the app were responsive to the FF and REW buttons on my bluetooth speaker

Despite having good network coverage, the streaming is getting worse everyday. Right now, I got stuck in the middle of a ted x show.

This new resume feature is way too aggressive. Rotating the screen while listening triggers "catch up or resume" dialog. Switching between activities also triggers it. App v1.6.5.2 on Android v6.0.1

Related bug in v1.6.5.3: If I accept to listen to a teaser story ("tap that listen now button your screen "), I get a resume dialog when the advertised story starts playing.
