I use split screen YouTube and Chrome on my phone, but when I visit e.g. bbc.com the video volume fades to a much lower level.

What causes this and can it be prevented?

This is a OP3t with Android 8.0 in case that matters

Most times this is caused by an video-ad on the website. It shouldn't happen on websites without any ad.

  • Strictly speaking, "on websites that does not emit sound". Notifications also cause a brief fade in volume.
