I have submitted a bug report in October, but this is such an annoyance that I wanted to voice it here as well, in case others are experiencing this and want to ‘up vote’ it. Details:
-In general, seems like the only way to hear acceleration/deceleration sound queues is to have have the music on along with sound effects, as well as to not use any other application with sound.
-Even workouts with no music and sound effects on, I am not able to use sound from other apps (Spotify, Youtube, etc), otherwise there is no sound at all.
-Even with no other apps turned on, seems like I have to have silence mode deactivated on the iPhone, which never used to be the case. EDIT: today on FTP 5 x 6, not even this work, zero sound no matter what I did or didn’t do.
-Btw, when doing a workout with no music, but using sound from another app. As soon as I turn off the sound of that app, close it, then leave systm with it still running (go to the first page of my iPhone for example), then go back to systm, all of the sounds that disappeared all avalanche at the same time audibly, like they were stuck at a door waiting for it top open.
-I’m using airpods, so I’m not sure if all of this is true when using the speaker on the iPhone, but that’s not a real option for me.
-I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, no fix. iPhone and app are up-to-date and have been.
In general, this is so super annoying because I’m 100% stuck with SYSTM audio wise, including a workout with no music, if I want to have the sound queues. Or I’m stuck watching the screen like a hawk, and for many workouts with the number of changes that happen I basically can’t afford to look away, which keeps my head locked into a position.
So yeah, not practical, and no fun, and is so annoying that it starts rising to the level of ‘maybe I should use a different app’, and I really, really love this app.
Anyways, maybe someone has figured out a magic way to fix this on the user side, but if not, I really hope you all get this fixed asap.
