I will be listening to music or a podcast on pandora, and when I get a notification (text, snap chat, Instagram, etc) it will pause the music. But when the notification goes away it will not continue to resume playing. I have to open the app and push play to continue the music. This is very annoying when I'm working and have to pull my phone out to press play every time I get a notification. I was wondering if anybody else has this problem and if there's a way to fix it. I've tried to go into the pandora settings, my phone settings, cleared the data, re download the app. But nothing has seemed to work. The problem started when I got the Samsung galaxy 21. I didn't have this problem with my previous Google pixel 3.

I saw a couple other people post this too. My Pandora app has also been pausing for every notification that pops up and I have to manually play it again. This is more a recent issue I've noticed at least for me. I've already silenced notifications on my phone and the app, not sure what else to do. Anyone have solutions?
