I have the latest app, latest Android Audio, Samsung Galaxy s9 brand-new.. When I listen to audio in the car, it's fine BUT.. you cannot change to my other audio apps (BeyondPod, Google Play Music, Audible, etc.).. The app seems to be LOCKED into the mode, and will not release when I try and pick another audio app.. from the Android Auto screen.. big pain in the rear :(

Same here, but with a Galaxy S8+.  At Bat version 8.1.0 and Android 8.0.0.

@Michael.  Not sure if you're using one of At Bat's wallpaper backgrounds or not?  I was, and I think this was keeping the app alive and allowing it to dominate any other attempt to use an audio streaming app w/ Android Auto.  I discovered this when I went into Settings > Apps and did a "Force Stop" on At Bat.  Funny thing was, when I did this it removed my MLB At Bat wallpaper and replaced it with the default.  I haven't had the problem since, even when switching between baseball games and other streaming services like YouTube Music, etc.  Hope that helps

I am experiencing this on two vehicles with two devices.
Both run AA 4.1.590944-release, Android 9 (April 2019 patch), At Bat 8.1.0.
One is a Pixel 2XL, the other is my wife's Pixel 2

I noticed it on the Pioneer head unit in my truck. To release At Bat from "locking" the system, I had to go to the phone Settings->Applications and force stop the app.

Yesterday (Sunday), were were on a short trip in my wife's Honda CRV, and used her phone on the stock head unit. Before we left, I installed At Bat on her device, and the same issue occurred - that app was locked in place on the head unit, and I had to force stop it on the phone to use any other app.

Same issue here.
Truth is I do not even know why someone would want the at bat app on AA when you could just follow the game by radio when in the car.
When should this be resolved by?
