Pandora displaces other audio when launched

Hi,

I've been noticing an annoying behavior from the Pandora app on Android when used with Waze:

When I launch Waze to check drive times to a certain location, Pandora automatically launches as well and starts playing music, even if I'm already using a different audio app (such as Pocket Casts). I know I can unlink Pandora and Waze, but there should be an option to avoid automatically launching Pandora when Waze is opened (or at least launch it silently without autoplay).

I already contacted Waze about it, and they said "This is intended behavior", so I would hoping someone on the Pandora side would take an interest in the issue.

 

Thanks!

 

P.S. I'm not using Android Auto.
