Steps to reproduce the problem:

  • Open Google Play Music
  • Select a playlist, start playback
  • Open Workout Training
  • Select a Workout
  • Press "Do Workout"
  • Select trainer voice
  • Press "Start"

As soon as the trianer's voice starts, the audio playback in Google Play Music is paused.

I am using a Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.2.2 and Google Play Music version 5.1052J.707098.

I have had the same problem but it just pauses the music.  A quick press of play fixes it

That's a good suggestion, and it is exactly what I tried earlier this morning. But as soon as I switch back to Workout Trainer and the trainer voice starts, the music from Google Play Music pauses again. If you can post the exact steps you used to make it work, could you post those so that I can try them? It is certainly possible that I could be "doing it all wrong" :-) Thanks, jason

Good news!

With the latest update, this problem is now gone. Works great on my Galaxy Nexus with Google Play Music.
