Music stops playing when I record video from my phone?

    When I'm airplaying music to my Apple TV from my iPhone 7 plus, and then I go to take a Snapchat or video on my iPhone, the music from my Apple TV stops playing while I'm doing that.

    Even when I'm airplaying a YouTube video and go to take a Snapchat... the video stops playing!!!!!!!

    Extremely annoying. Pretty much a deal breaker for me.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this just the way Apple TV works?

    It's not the Apple TV, it's the phone - recording video uses the audio system, and as such any audio playing is temporarily paused.

    It doesn't even make sense if the phone plays music while you're recording a video unless you want tp hear that sound in the video.

    yes this is clearly intentional...why would you want the crappy music audio in your video?
