It's taking about 10 seconds of silence between items when listening to NPR One on a Chromecast. Which is otherwise a REALLY nice experience. Could I report this as a bug?

For most longer shows (half an hour or more), NPR One inserts a plug between stories, inviting listeners to tap the button to listen to the entire show.  This is good.  But some, like KQED's Forum, just start playing automatically. The beauty of NPR One is the random mix of stories.  For this to work, the stories need to be of similar (shorter) length.  Maybe there should be a setting to let users select whether to include long-form programs in the mix.

I love the app! Two suggestions :

- A radio alarm feature

- currently, the hourly news update that plays when you first start NPR 1 is not included in your listening history. I accidentally skipped it this morning and was unable to find it to replay.

+Sam Mohyee thanks for the feedback. We have Google Now support in the NPR One Android app. If Google Now is enabled on your device, you can say, "Ok Google, Listen to NPR," and you will access the latest Newscast.

Feature request: In addition to marking interesting, add a button to "Queue" a story up. When I search I find SO much interesting stuff, I mark it interesting, but don't want to play it right then because I'm already listening to an amazing story. This app is incredible, please keep up the great work on improving this :)

+Tejas Mistry I understand, you want to keep it sleek and easy to use. Designing interfaces is a science and an art. I have faith you guys can figure out a way to do this!

If I pause the app for several minutes (say i'm in the checkout) when I go to replay the playlist will restart. It would be nice to leave off where I left even if paused for hours.

Play From Search Not Working

Just downloaded the app to my OnePlus One while playing to my Chromecast and searching, I click on a story and nothing happens. The same if I click on interesting.

I have to disconnect from my Chromecast, select the story, and then connect again to my Chromecast.

I'd love to see a "queue" or "play next" option. Whenever I look around for things to listen to, I can only hear them immediately, cutting off what I'm listening to now. I know it's curated automatically, but I'd like to curate my own content as well.

There are times when I may be interested in a story but not right now. Mostly this is with long form journalism. What I would like is if there was a "save for later" in addition to just skip to the next story. I was thinking something like flick a story up might be a good way to do this.

I love this app; however, I don't like it to be open 24/7. After listening to NPR ONE for a while, I'll pause playback, but the app remains open in my notifications bar indefinitely. I've tried using the back button to exit and switching to home. I've also searched through the context menu and top left menu and even tried signing out, but I can't "exit" or otherwise remove the notification from the notifications bar.

+Michael Seifollahi You are indeed correct, there is an X "Close" in the expended Notifications (Android 4.4.4). My apologies for not noticing it. Tried it and it works to kill the NPR One process.

Suggestion:
Allow people with headsets to use their button to pause and restart playback of audio. Right now if I'm listening and press my button it launches an audio/podcast player (Doubletwist)

Second suggestion:
Something is glitch with INTERESTING button. I'm trying to populate my suggestions, so I do a search, press interesting, then back up and do it again. It forgets that I've pressed interesting unless I actually play it.

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!

Hello NPR team - The volume for the local station reports from WHYY remains substantially higher than the national news. Hopefully a quick fix for your team. Thanks, Gregg

I have had a very difficult time playing any of the stories that were shared in the welcome email from the NPR One team. I've had various problems, but the most consistent one is that the story doesn't load or buffer, even if I am on WiFi with a strong connection. Another issue I have seen is where if I hit play it plays for a fraction of a second and then immediately pauses.

It's been over a week of use now, regularly making stories as Interesting, but Suggestions still blank and tells me to use Search to find articles.

I would love to be able to look up, in a category, all of the talks that I have marked as "interesting".

I truly love npr one. However, I believe that it will be improved if my requests are taken into consideration. Firstly, I find ' interesting' actually useless, it should be replaced with ' save for listening later' or be added in a favorite list so that my favorite ones would not be lost. Secondly, I think it will be absolutely better to sort out audio by topics. And lastly, for foreigners like me, it'll be wonderful to have transcripts. I know that most of listeners are native speakers or good at English listening but I still hope that there are transcripts for people like me. Thanks for reading my requests!

+1 to +Anna Lanh​'s suggestions, in particular adding a feature to "mark for later listening" (in addition to Interesting, which I think is a great concept, rather than replacing it)

Instead of asking for donations periodically, it might be a cool feature If you allowed people to enter a member number and then we wouldn't get donation requests and the local station would get what we like to listen to.

Thanks +Ben Woodard for the ideas.  I can't speak on behalf of member stations, but we have a team dedicated to solving this, and they are working with several member stations to connect NPR One with local station membership.  It's absolutely a problem we will solve.

I wish there was an easier way to save the clips you want, then listen to them all in order.

When I go to suggestions it keeps telling me it has nothing and to use the search feature.

I have. Many times. Found cool stories in Tech and Medical. Pressed Interesting. Nothing changes, and when I look later Interesting is turned off for that story.

+Michael Seifollahi  Still no luck populating suggestions. Nexus 5, Android 4.4.4, rooted, stock ROM w/ custom kernel and ad-blocking hosts file. Would any of that cause this?
