Always pause music players when switching speakers

April 2020

I’ve expanded a feature in Relax! Instead of only kicking into action when the default output switches to the built-in speaker, you can now choose to pause Spotify, Music and/or iTunes when the default audio output changes to any sound device. 🥳

This is a great update for when you leave your Mac connected to external speakers, but don’t want to miss a second of your favorite music or podcast when you disconnect your headphones. 🎧

You can get it on the Mac App Store!
