Casting from mobile pauses when screen is turned off

Running the latest beta 5.10.0.132 and now when I cast to my Rasplex, if I am on the main episode screen or the season screen of a TV season and the screen sleeps, the casting pauses. If I go back up higher, to the main screen (on deck, new, etc) I can shut off the screen and the stream stays playing. Just started with this latest update.

Nexus 6P, Android 7.1.1

    If you haven't posted this in the Android (mobile) beta board it probably won't get the attention it needs. @Nobodyin303 you might want to comment on the thread jens.bergqvist started in the beta board.

    Where are my log files?

    How do I properly name my media files?

    I am having this problem too with the same beta version @Nobodyin303 mentioned and the update after that one.

    I can workaround it, when the focus is taken off of Plex, pull down your notifications and resume playing from the Chromecast status.

    This issue appears to be solved in the latest beta (5.10.0.232).
