Go to previous screen
When I press the back button inside the app, half the time it minimizes it instead of going to the previous screen. Please have it go back to the previous screen.
Pressing on the back button returns to the previous screen until the opening screen is reached. Then pressing back again will leave the app.
If you open the open on the player screen from a widget or the notification, then the opening screen is the player screen and pressing back will exit that screen
This means that you're opening the app on the player screen either from the notification or a widget.
If you open the app from the app launcher icon, then this will not happen

Yes, I am aware of that. But too often I maximize the player (even while a podcast has been actively playing), and pressing back one time immediately minimizes the app (which is useless since I have the home button on my Pixel phone to perform that function), instead of going back to a screen that I was looking at the last time I had the app open.
