An I the only one whose music will stop once I open the app? I don't like this, it is disruptive during podcasts. Now it is happening so that I cannot play music during the games at all. If this isn't some issue with settings that I haven't figured out then please fix this. My game sounds and music are toggled off.
As of 5.0, the game will respect your music and not play in-game music if you have music or podcasts playing;
This happens to me too - it drives me crazy! one of my favorite ways to relax is to play this game & listen to podcasts/audiobooks. After I open the gme I have to go close the podcast app and reopen it & then i can usually listen & play. I've never had an app do this except youtube or something like that - but that makes sense. Is there some reason for this?
