Description Of Issue

Android “Audio Focus” is not enabled properly.
When playing roon audio on my Android phone, audio should duck when i receive notifications, not pause as it currently does.
This is due to “audio focus” feature not being implemented;
All other music apps, spotify, google music, youtube, plexamp implement this properly


I have this issue too. I find playing Tidal through Roon on android better than playing on Tidal android directly. But since I cannot mute notifications, which seems to play it uninterrupted, it continues to be an issue while on ringer mode. It is very annoying and hope they find a solution for this. If there is already one, would be great if someone comments on it
