    Has anyone else noticed that the Facebook App does strange things to the playback volume of things like music and podcasts? I spend most of my day listening to podcasts when I'm at work doing various things and if I get a Facebook notification then the volume of the podcast decreases and stays decreased until I get another notification or I pause and restart the audio. The same thing will sometime happen if I just launch Facebook. This seems to happen with any podcast app that I use. I've tried Apple's Podcast app, Downcast, and Overcast.

    Yes, it happens, the reason Facebook's auto play for videos, if you open facebook and there is a video it will auto play and for some reason (bug in facebook) it will affect the volume..

    workaround is to disable autoplay under the facebook options.

    I had it on wifi only, but just changed it to never. We will see if that fixes the problem. Thanks for the suggestion.
