Unable to play music while playing a mobile game

Local Performer

I'm trying to reach out to my fellow pandora family to seek help with a problem I'm having with my music stop playing when I play a mobile game;when I have the game volume muted.

Can someone please explain what I can do to fix this issue.

Thanks for whatever help y'all give me.

@JonBoy1980 Nice to see you around the Community. 

We're so glad to hear you've been enjoying Pandora while using other apps. Unfortunately, the sound settings of each app are set by the needs of the app and cannot be altered. So, if you are playing a game or using an app that requires sound, the audio from Pandora may pause. It's not possible for us to override the sound settings, or any other functions of another app.

I hope this helps explain. Thanks again for listening!

If the app allows you to turn it's sound off, then it's not necessary for that app. It would be nice if apps that allow users to turn off their sounds, if Pandora could play in it's stead. Just a thought, a wish, a prayer. 🙏 Plzzzzz
