So if I'm trying to listen to music as I fall asleep, I typically have music playing quietly so I can actually fall asleep. Spotify doesn't let you have an independent volume and turn the volume down without turning everything down. My phone is my alarm in the morning and I won't hear it if my phone is turned down all the way. What's the point of having spotify if I can't even listen to my music in the nighttime which is the only time people who work get to relax.
Hi there @JoshuaAM! Welcome to the Spotify Community.
Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure this is an issue with iOS and not the app itself. I haven't heard of another app that utilizes it's own volume among the rest of the OS. I do have to say that I'm not entirely a connossiuer of apps though so I could be wrong, but I have a pretty strong feeling about this.
Every app I have used has independent volume. It lets you toggle in app sounds and music separately both independent from the phones volume. @mikeyB I don't see a difference and don't understand how the games are different from this music app.
