Background audio only allows me to pause, can't play

I’m using a plugin called ionic-audio which works off cordova-plugin-media. I had to enable background mode with cordova-plugin-background-mode in order to get background audio to play. The issue I’m having now is that audio will play in the background but will not allow me to play it after pausing it or resume it.

Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? It’s very frustrating that audio is playing in the background but just gives me no way to control it other than pausing.

Seeing the same issue here.
