    For everyone looking at this. External sound stops when Unity starts but then you can start it again. I tried spotify and it works. So it's not a big issue.

    This is nuts. Can't even up vote it anymore despite the regression. Anyone know if this is happening in 5.5? Might push on to the beta if so.

    Me three! On all iOS versions/devices, volume drops. Not sure if this is related to the Android issue, or separate.

    We've been seeing this ever since we upgraded to Unity 5.4.

    We were not using any audio, but iOS background audio (audiobooks, music players, etc) would cut volume in half. We have received many CS complaints about this in the last few weeks.

    This need to be solved. It used to work in older versions. Something broke along the way and Unity now stops external audio from other apps. Severity of this issue needs to be raised.

    I tried Disabling all unity audio and the music still stops... So what is the workaround for this to have a severity 3?
