 Beta-Version 6.7.5

STARFACE Mobile Client for Android, Beta-Version 6.7.5.0 (Build 345), Release Date: 21.01.2021 (Beta)

Beta-Version 6.7.5.0 (Release Date: 21.01.2021)

Important notes

  • Various manufacturers (including Huawei, Xiaomi and OnePlus) have recently tightened their battery management policies for many devices in the course of optimizing battery consumption. This prevents the background activity of apps in certain constellations if the user does not explicitly allow it for an app. It is possible that this stricter policy for handling background activity of apps may also have an impact on the STARFACE Mobile Client. We therefore recommend checking the settings on the device side with regard to prioritized background activity and adjusting the settings if necessary. Important settings are 1. "Deactivate battery optimization for the app" and 2. "Set the respective app to 'Manually manage' under App-Start". In addition, it may be necessary to adjust the settings for prioritizing the notifications of the STARFACE app on some devices to ensure that the app notifications (e.g. for incoming calls) are still displayed as usual. These settings may differ slightly depending on manufacturer, device and Android version.

    The following link provides a brief guide to this (with some device-specific examples): Error Guide - Calls are not displayed in the Mobile Client.

Improvements

  • If the public access prefix is activated, outgoing calls without the specified prefix are executed correctly.

Bugfixes

  • If the public access prefix was activated, a call from the call list could not be started correctly without the specified prefix [Call#6949830][Call#6952879][Call#6953288][Call#6956810][Call#6970988][Call#6945246][Call#6962780][Call#6963131].
  • If the public access prefix was activated, calling a fully qualified external number from the Numpad without the specified prefix failed.
  • If the public access prefix was activated, the callback of an external number via the call symbol in the Voicemail tab of the journal did not work correctly.
  • In some cases, it took a long time to display the search results when searching in the Keys tab of the Contacts screen.
  • Bugfixes to improve stability.
