Android Central Question

I just made the switch from IOS to Android.
I have been using apple iphone since the begining, and would like to try android! So i bought myself an Samsung Galaxy S8!
I'm still trying to figure out how it Works...
but one of my main issues is.. it keeps pausing my music whenever i Watch a story on Snapchat / Instagram. Normaly on IOS it plays over the video, or when i press the volume button, its removes music and takes videos sound, and starts playing music after Again.. But on android, its completely Blocks my music out, without resumeing it at any point...

Please help!

Probably because of video stories. When a video with sound plays, the music app or Snapchat/Instagram automatically pause the music so you can hear the video's audio. Do picture stories also pause the music?
