How to Open Snapchat without Music Stopping in iOS 12/11.4/11.3

"Is anyone else having a problem with Snapchat pausing your music playback? My music is playing through Bluetooth car stereo and when I open Snapchat it pauses the music. Didn't have this problem until iOS 11.1."

As a well-known image messaging and multimedia mobile application running on iOS and Android devices all over the world, Snapchat brings a lot of fun as well as controversial views to us. Recently you may find that there is a new bug in Snapchat app on iOS 11.1, like Snapchat could not connect on iOS 11, snapchat pausing music after updating to iOS 12 beta, etc. In this post we are going to share some potential solutions to music stops playing once we open Snapchat on iPhone/iPad.


Option 1. Open Music on Browser Instead of App

How to play music and Snapchat at the same time on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? In most cases, we play music on the music App like iTunes, Spotify or SoundCloud, which will have an effect on Snapchat app running for some unknown reasons. Therefore, one of the feasible suggestions figured out by a group of tactful users is that you had better not playing music on App, but on web browser like Safari. After that, both of them won't influence each other.  The specific steps are:

  • Open the song in web browser on iOS device (for example: and play. Bypass the request to open it in app and then minimize browser screen.
  • This will pause the song, now you need to swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen to pull open the control center, which will bring it up in the audio player.
  • Press to play, and music will be played in the background while running Snapchat.
