My device is running Android 5.0 and one annoying thing about it is that if I'm listening to music and get a notification, my music will pause just to play my notification sound. Is there a way I could disable the pausing of audio when receiving a notification? I have root access, which should help, but I don't know where to start or how to start.
If you're willing to switch to another audio player than whatever you're currently using, you can achieve this with PowerAmp. It has a menu for audio focus, which has settings for pausing or not when a notification is received, and whether to pause or not when there's an incoming call.
The one I linked to is the trial version. The pro version costs roughly $5.
I'm not directly affiliated with MaxMP or PowerAmp, but I am betatesting the upcoming version.
