Hey @user-removed 

 

This appears to be a PulseAudio thing and thus should be fixable by doing the following:
1. Open Terminal, open this file using whatever you like (I use nano):

sudo nano /etc/pulse/default.pa

2. Look for this line and comment it out:

load-module module-role-cork

3. Restart Pulseaudio.

According to the file, this module will mute/stop audio and video playback when a phone stream is active.

 

Let me know how you get on. 🙂

Yes, I have the same problem. And it stays muted even when the app is closed. It's very frustrating that you have to do it manually.
