Recently I noticed that when playing games on PS5 while listening to Spotify the volume will go up and down in some games (e.g. Control Ultimate Edition) and will be completely muffled in others (e.g. Destiny 2). I find myself upping the TV volume because if I up the music volume on system it’ll only make it sound overblown and the sound will still be muffled. I don’t know if it is intentional or not, but it’s really annoying. I’ve never had this problem on PS4, the volume slider was always consistent in and out of game.
I also searched for a way to fix this but there’s no setting in the console’s system that address this other than the music volume (that will only impact the music quality given this weird behavior). There’s also no settings on the Spotify app whatsoever.
