From app version 1.8.0 you have a variety of options for listening to music, or podcasts, or any other form of audio when working out!
If you want to change your music source, hit Hey asensei [+] then My asensei and then tap on the option shown beneath the Music heading where you'll be given a choice of several options:
This is your default option, playlists curated especially for asensei with our music partner feed.fm. This option gives us the greatest control over what we can do with music during a workout. Uniquely in this mode you'll see on-screen notifications appear at the top of the screen when the track changes and we also have greatest control over the ducking of this music so it will be played at the most optimal volume possible.
You have two options Apple Music or Background.
Apple Music allows you to choose a playlist from your Apple Music collection and asensei will play this automatically during your workout.
Background allows you to play music from any 3rd party app such as Spotify, Pandora, Soundcloud, or your favourite podcast app. You will need to start the music yourself before you start your workout but the music will continue during the workout.
Get in the zone
Tap on the text saying None and you won't have any music playing while you workout, allowing you to get in the zone and stay in the zone.
As before if you want to skip a track, pause or play, you can use the iOS Control Center.
We hope you enjoy these expanded options, but tell us what you think via firstname.lastname@example.org.
