If I'm listening to music with my headphones on and i get an SMS the musics leaks to the phone speakers for about 2 seconds or so. (I'm not sure but i think this also affect mails and other notifications)

Yes, it's annoying and happens with email notifications also. The music is muted for a fraction but still leaks to the speakers when notification sound ends. According to others the music is muted when a notification occurs (see https://together.jolla.com/question/37387/music-playback-is-interrupted-if-a-notification-occurs-while-notification-volume-is-muted/)

Haha yeah. I was in one of those silent train cars yesterday when it started playing punk on max volume, got a couple of annoyed looks :P

Which music player have you used when the music has been leaked? I used CuteSpotify, but apparently it does not happen with all players.

I'm assuming this happened with CuteSpotify or some other custom music player? At least with CuteSpotify this is a combination of a bug in QtMultimedia and a bit too permissive PulseAudio configuration, causing some stream roles not being ducked when notifications are played and audio routing is changed to headphones+speaker for the duration of the notification. There will be workaround in next update (better PulseAudio configuration) and fix later (QtMultimedia).

Yes it is with CuteSpotify I'm not sure if it happens with some other players its the only one i use. Sound good
