Q:When the app is running in the background, how do I adjust the volume of other apps (such as ringing, alarm, media, notification etc.)?
A:In this case, please turn on the screen first, the system will pop up a notification bar when you click the volume button, pull down to see all the relevant volume adjustment bars, adjust them. Ignore the bar related to this app.

Q: How do I know the app is recording when the screen is off ?
A: Please press the volume up key again to check if it vibrates twice, if it vibrates three short times quickly, that means another app is using the microphone, need to turn it off. Generally just remember one simple rule, the volume up key is for recording and the down key is for stop forever, doesn’t matter how many times you clicked.
