[All Platforms] Audio ducking control

I use Spotify a lot while gaming and using Discord (similar to Teamspeak or Skype). Whenever someone talks in Discord, the Spotify audio ducks (lowers) severely, making it very difficult to hear music at all. I have turned ducking off on Windows and Discord, but there doesn't seem to be a way to stop Spotify from automatically ducking when there is another notification/sound on the PC.

I think it would be great if Spotify had a setting to toggle ducking on/off.

I would love to see this feature on the Android app. I rarely use Spotify in favor of Poweramp, which does offer this feature (its "Short Audio Focus Change" option). Quite annoying to have the music volume lowering whenever I get a notification due to, e.g., a new email or navigation instructions. I can hear the navigation instructions perfectly fine over the music without volume ducking.

Totally new to the forums; came here specifically trying to find out how to turn off auto-ducking in Windows desktop. Why does it say I cannot vote for this idea?

Edit: Posting this prompted me to create a username. Now I can vote. :)
