When I remove AirPods from my ears, playback stops. Is there anything you can do to stop playback?
Thank you for getting in touch and sharing your feedback.
I checked online and found steps to turn off the autamtic ear detection:
in your AirPod settings under Settings > Bluetooth > AirPods. Tap on the i next to your AirPods and toggle Automatic Ear Detection off.
Hope this is helping.
