This would be a GREAT feature. Especially using nav app (such as Waze) along side Spotify - driving in city the nav instructions are way too frequent, causing Spotify volume duck and raise constantly, making listening to Spotify hardly an enjoyable experience. Make that a setting option so users can choose to duck Spotify volume, or ignore audio focus rquests if deem the nav instructions can be heard good enough along side the music.

This would be awesome but would be great for all platforms not just android!!
