Signal video cuts out when I go to different apps

I use signal on my ios phone to do video calls with my friends(they use pc). Whenever I go to an app that isn’t signal, the video freezes. Is there a way to make signal not do that?

You’ve actually stumbled on an iOS (possibly security) limitation :slight_smile: Apple doesn’t want apps to be able to access your camera in the background, so no third-party apps are given the permission to do so. On Android, Signal is able to still record when you leave the app.

There’s this (older but should still be relevant) segment from Apple’s Dev site covering it: Apple Developer Documentation
