Right now, when sound notifications are turned out, Brili's sound alerts will pause other apps playing. This is particularly problematic during longer routines where you might want to listen to music while completing the routine and the close to end time and end time sound alerts pause it without restarting it. The close to end sound is particularly an issue since it means that even though your time is almost up for a task, your attention is diverted to go unpause your music.
It would be a nice QoL feature to have the alerts fade in over other apps' sounds without pausing them entirely such as the native Clock app alarm does on iPhones.
I would love it if Brili would temporarily pause sounds coming from external apps and then restart them afterward. I'm an ADHD adult who uses Brili, and I listen to a lot of audiobooks and podcasts while getting ready in the morning. I've missed more than a couple of timers and lost a decent amount of time trying to get my book back on during a Brili routine.
