Let sleep timer pause at the end rather than exit application
I use al lot the Sleep Timer feature to help me listen to my favorite podcasts as I fall asleep. However, currently, the app simply exits the application at the end of the timer instead of pausing.
In my opinion, it would be more convenient if the Sleep Mode Timer could pause the playback when it reaches the designated time. This way, if I want to continue playback I can voice command Google assistant to resume playback. Now Google assistant will say "there is no media playing". In earlier builds of the app it work because the sleep timer did just a pause and the app kept running in the notifications area.
The developer says this is the current behavior to save on resources and battery, but me (and probably many others) charge their smartphone at night. Also, it exits the application at night and during the day I have it running all day in pause mode.
Hope you can add an option to choose what the sleep timer does at the end.
