Notifications stop music/sounds in gaming apps


AC Question

Hello all, not sure if this has been answered alreasy or not. Lately I have been having an issue where I'll be playing a gaming app (Pokemon Go or Marvel Alliance 2) whith sounds on and I will receive a notification of a text or other dings and the sound and music will stop working in the gaming app completely. I am unsure if this has been an ongoing issue as I've only recently been playing games with sound on (need to hear when I walk by a pokestop). This is not the issue of sound or music dropping in level during a notification and then coming back. This has the sound and music dropping all together. The only way to bring the sound/music back is to restart the app. Anyone else been experiencing this?
