UWP app background task execution doubt RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Is there any limitation to background task execution time(of 30 seconds). I have a background task started using ApplicationTrigger on app launch.

    I want to understand is it possible to let the background task in same process of foreground app to keep running until I cancel the task programmatically ?

    If not then how apps like whatsapp and chat applications which need to send and receive messages in background work forever ?
