Common FAQ about

Q:How do I stop Spotify from pausing when I record?

When taking a video and playing music at the same time, the default recording app automatically stops Spotify streaming the song.  Here are the steps to solve this problem on iOS:

Step 1: Open Spotify and select the music you like. Hit the stop button to pause the music first;

Step 2: Go to Camera and stay in the PHOTO mode, switch to Spotify to play the music;

Step 3: Switch back to Camera. Hold your finger on the shutter button and drag it to the right to record a video with music playing.

Q:Why is there no sound when I screen-record Apple music?

The most common reason for this issue is that Apple Music forbids its users to do so. Screen recording while playing music in the app is considered as the reproduction of the original one. This action is strictly restricted because it is carried out without the consent of the distributor. To protect the copyrights of distributed music and songs on Apple Music, the microphone feature will be disabled once you start screen recording.
