Challenges

The scarcity of powerful internet resources has degraded music streaming quality. Whenever any song is selected for live streaming, buffering was one of the biggest issues faced by our developers. As the entire application is based on live music streaming, compromising with the latency period will degrade the application quality. In order to achieve the best results, our development team managed this scenario by changing the cloud permissions from private to public using p3 certification.

Whenever a song is played, management of media player in the background process on various modes like play, pause, shuffle, and repeat was indeed a difficult task for the developers. Managing media player that allows you to change various modes was quite hard. Our developers managed media player centrally by using a service class that automatically handles every request call invoked to play, pause, shuffle or repeat a song.

There are two types of Kakaki users restricted with different roles and access: Non-prime users and prime users. Allowing global users to access the music content and bifurcating users as per their subscription plan was indeed a hard and tedious task. Our Indian app developers fixed this issue by getting the status of users subscription in an enumeration and thereby assign the rights accordingly.

Handling the status bar content in notification and switching content mode instantly was one of the biggest challenges faced during the development period. The technical knowledge of our developers helped us to manage the state effectively. Using Notification class and background services, our development team handled all the media state in the status bar.
