App inventor and Task

Hi, in my research for the purpose to write an app that is always running, even when it is not in the foreground, I found this version of the app inventor.
Doesn’t allow you to fill in, does anyone know it?

Services has been abandoned. image What you can do is use a Stay Awake routine.

The best you can do is prevent the screen from closing using a Stay Awake routine .

Either use a Stay Awake block routine using a Notifier

or you use Taifun’s Tools Extension:

Be aware using either an extension or a block routine drains your device battery rapidly . These work around methods are not running the app in the Background, they force the app screen to stay open.

thank you very much

I would like to know why the background service is not possible on ai2?

because, as @SteveJG already mentioned

Google has taken Android in a direction that makes the approach to services taken here unworkable.
