Hello @badboygolf16v,

Thanks for reporting this. I’ve looped in our technical team so they can assess this behavior.

Please, stay tuned, as the team returns to work on Monday :nerd_face:

Hey @badboygolf16v,

Thanks so much for sharing the steps to reproduce the issue. I’m only sorry we didn’t get a chance to reply until today…

I’ve passed this along to our QA team, but, I was wondering, has everything stayed the same?

Yes, same behaviour, if the Roon notification bar is shown then it’s not possible to use the Android volume control. Facebook was just an example.

Same issue I think. iBasso DX300. Roon just seems to mute itself. All other apps play sound.
