Hey,i am planning to publish my music app already exists on playstore.The question is : the music player has a foreground service wich continue to play music even if the app is
closed.So how amazon underground will calculate the time the user opend my app since users can open it for few seconds select the tracks to play and close it and the audio will be played in the
background.Do i get paid if the user opened the main activity?or the whole player?thank you.
Amazon determines app usage as the amount of time that an Android Activity for your app is open and running in the foreground of a mobile device. Amazon uses four standard Android lifecycle calls to determine when an Activity gains or loses focus and is in the foreground: - onStart - onPause - onResume - onStop The following types of apps are not good candidates for the Amazon Underground program: * Anti-virus or clock apps that run continuously in the background. * Apps that are freely available elsewhere and do not have paid IAP items. * Apps that are monetized through ads and whose only IAP item is an option to pay to remove the ads. * "Premium" apps whose only premium feature is being ad-free. * Apps that support passive streaming content, such as a radio station app or app to watch videos. Note that an interactive game that leverages streaming technology would be eligible and would probably make a good candidate for Amazon Underground. * Apps containing subscription services.
