Disable connection to Google Chrome

Hi,

i have had a problem with Podcast Addict on my Honor 8.
Every time i locked my Screen the App was shutting down and no Audio was playing.

So i searched a litte time and found out, that this issue came from using the Option "close after the screen locks" on Google Chrome!

I dont know why Podcast Addict uses Google Chrome to play Audio but after disabling "close after the screen locks" on Google Chrome Podcast Addict worked fine in locked mode.

    Sorry but killing Chrome will automatical drop the app as the app uses WebViews.
    There’s no way to prevent ‘disconnect’ the app from Chrome. Most podcast app will have the same issue
