[Android] Option to choose between ducking volume / stop the music and do nothing when notification

Hello,

 

Spotify is one of the music apps that don't give users the choice of media volume behavior when a notification comes in when the phone isn't in vibrate or silent mode.

It will be very useful to have a setting to choose between temporarily lower the volume of the music (as it's working right now), pause the music, or simply do nothing and play the notification sound over the music.

 

Other music apps offer this option and I'd really like to see that coming to Spotify.

 

Regards.

This is actually one of the most annoying things (imo), especially if you are listening over Bluetooth or in the car. In Poweramp it's called audio ducking and if you disable it, the notification sound is just overlays the music. Please consider this🙏🙏

Hope it will get included. Very frustrating when it all the time changes between lower and higher volume. Especially in Miui where it happens even with notification sound set to 0.

Also include this option for podcast, as right now it completely pauses the sound when listening to a podcast (hate it) , and lowers volume when listening to music (like it should imo) .

It should be just avaible in settings to change with preferences
