    This issue is also NOT fixed for me.
    Ran into this problem today on Unity Version 5.4.2.
    Updated to Version 5.6.1.
    Tried everything: "Mute Other Audio Sources", "Disable Unity Audio", disabling all Audio Sources within my App. Nothing helps. Background music of other Apps is stopped right after Splash Screen.

    Not fixed. Please mark this as not fixed so I can vote on it. It's a constant issue that is constantly in regression so stop marking it as fixed and then breaking it again so we can't vote on it

    The audio reduction issue is causing a lot of grief. Multiple users are reviewing my game as 1 star, because they tend to listen to external music apps while playing it.

    Is there any workaround, besides completely killing all audio prior to compiling your game?

    Why are you reducing the sound at all? It is annoying users so much they go out of their way to blast you in reviews.

    This issue isn't fixed. Currently it doesn't stop the background audio, but lowers the volume, which isn't acceptable. Our users are complaining about that!
