    some news? I have the same problem. Unity 5.3.5f1 Personal for Mac, app. Android 4.4.
    The music of the game disappears after unity ads show and never comes back. The Unity ADS spost instead always have regular audio

    Replicates 100% with 5.3.5f1 on every Android device I've tested. We really need this fix ASAP it is blocking our beta
