I’ve been working with the android and iOS SDK. More specifically and recently - on minimizing video calls.
I am currently developing a react native application and have been using a react native bridge to integrate the native SDKs. On Android I am using the
enableMinimize method to allow a user to minimize the video call. Upon clicking “minimize meeting” - the call does successfully minimize but it also exits out of my react native app and goes to the android home screen. Is this something I can somehow prevent? Why would it take over the app and exit to minimize the video call?
I don’t receive an error in the logs, so I assume it may be built in to behave this way. However it is not an ideal user experience to have them kicked out of the app. Any guidance on how I can make it so the android SDK does not exit the app and simply minimizes would be greatly appreciated.
On iOS there is an existing
minimizeMeeting method that actually allows for me to dynamically minimize the call for the user (not just enable the user to minimize). I wanted to double check that this is not an available feature on android without using the custom UI. In iOS it does not exit the react native application like android does.
Which Android Video SDK version?
