[Android] Bring back lower volume for notifications

[Android] Bring back lower volume for notifications

Notifications completely pauses the music I'm listening to instead of just lowering the volume. It was fine until an update recently. There does not appear to be an option for it any more. Why was this taken away? Muting notifications is not an option. This is the kind of problem that will make me move to another service.

Hey @HalinReno,


Thanks for reaching out to the Community.


We appreciate your feedback and will take into consideration while moving forward. Please note however that this is not entirely in the control of Spotify and we can't set an exact timeframe for a fix. The way notifications work while media is playing depends how the manufacturer and the OS developer have configurated the device to interact with the app. In this regard we'd also recommend reaching out to Google and the manufacturer's support for more info on possible workarounds around this. In the meantime we recommend that you always keep the app updated to the latest version, as we roll out new improvements and fixes with each update.


Hope this info is useful. The Community is here for you, should you have any questions.
