Hi. What is the functional purpose of interrupting the watch live stream with a blur overlay and “Activity Detected” message? To be clear, I understand what this message is for and agree it would be useful while viewing past timeline events, so you can be alerted and jump to the action. But I cannot understand why this would be useful for someone who is currently watching the live stream that it has detected activity in?
I suppose this could be helpful to someone with multiple devices, if I am watching live on one device and it detects activity on the second device. But for accounts with only one device or when a user is watching the same stream the activity is detected in, this box should not be shown. It is at best disruptive and at worst buggy: if several of these appear without being dismissed and are allowed to stack up, it becomes impossible to return to the watch live stream without force quitting the app unless each one is individually dismissed. Even giving in and pressing View Event continues to show each and every last Activity Detected alert.
I think the spirit of these messages are nice, but it is a poor implementation and should never show when watching live. Besides, pressing View Event will… show me a recording of the event! Who would prefer that over continuing to watch the action!
