How we built it

WebAudio: suspend/resume

Supports suspending and resuming an AudioContext to allow applications to pause the audio device when needed. This reduces CPU usage and power consumption when audio is suspended.


The specification for suspend and resume has not yet been finalized, but any changes are expected to be very small.
