    Just noticed something in my iPhone 6 that doesn't seem to happen on my iPhone 5 with iOS 8 installed. When I have music playing, it stops whenever I enter the Messages app. Anyone experiencing this? I can't see why this would make sense.

    I'd imagine it's because you can now create and send an audio message directly in Messages. It's designed to be quick and easy, and I guess wouldn't work so well if you had music playing.

    This is happening to me on my 5s when Spotify is playing. I unlock my phone when spotify is playing and open messages and music stops. Definitely some sort of bug that needs to be worked out. Glad im not the only one to be experiencing this.

    is there any way to disable the audio messages? I know if you turn siri off it disables the microphone. Wondering if this is a fix.

    Don't think so but mine are enabled and it's working fine. Tried both iMessage and a regular text.

    Mine will play and record audio messages temporarily pausing music.

    It will also temporarily pause music the play a video.

    The only issue is when I record a video the music stops. After I'm done I need to restart it via control center or the app.

    ....right
    But does your music pause automatically when its playing and you go into the messages app without doing anything in the messages app, just opening it?

    Similar behaviour in Overcast when I open Safari

    When I am listening to a podcast, the audio with stop sometimes when I begin browsing in Safari. I think it's a bug.

    It happened to me once on my iPhone 5s. All I did was quit Messages and open it back up and the music kept playing.

    It must've gotten stuck on an audio clip or something.

    Closed all my apps, and did a hard reset. Seemed to fix the issue...
