Desktop App: Sound Turns off With Incoming Notifications

Local Performer

I use the Pandora app on my PC. If a windows notification comes in while the Pandora app is open the sound turns off but does not turn back on. The song continues to play with no sound. The only way to fix the issue is to restart the Pandora app. These are not Pandora notifications; I have those turned off. Usually, it's an incoming email notification or something along those lines.

So, in a nutshell:

Sound works, notification comes in and sound is muted for the notice *ding*, sound does not resume but song continues to play. Must restart the app to remedy.

Does anyone know a fix for this issue?

Hi @cslater66 👋

Thanks for your first post!

I've enabled a trace on your account so that we can take a closer look just in case I need to report this to our engineers.

In the meantime, I suggest performing our Desktop App troubleshooting steps to see will help resolve the issue with your playback sound when recieving outside notifications.

Hope this helps and let us know how it goes!
