Default [Q] Music pauses for every notification

Hey guys.

It bugs me to the core when I'm listening to music and it always has to pause for 2 secs whenever any notification comes in.

As a normal music player or OS will behave, it should fade the music a little bit and notification plays on top.

It gets more annoying when notifications are constant. E.G listening to music and chatting on WhatsApp.

Is there anything, mod, tweak that I can apply to make music only fade when notifications come, not pause for 2-3 seconds?

When streaming Google All Access, it only slightly lowers the volume and plays the notification sound on top, as you are stating that it should be doing

My guess is that it has something to do with whatever app you're using.

Yes. Thats what I mean it should be doing. To lower the music (fadel) then refocus on the music after notification sound.

Hmm. I'd test that but I dont have Google music access.

However, when I use Spotify, it fades the music and refocus on it after the notification sound. Pandora as well.

Its the Samsung music player that won't do the same.

Turn the system sounds to vibrate or silent. Not exactly convenient, but it's better than nothing.

I hate this as well, I'd rather just that it played the notification through the music without silencing it at all.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
