[Help] Is there a way to disable pause any media that's playing?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 06:45

I have a task that voices incoming SMS messages. Only thing missing in my task is a way to pause any audio that may be playing. For example if I'm listing to something using TuneIn, the audio does not pause when I get an SMS.

Of course, audio pauses for an incoming phone call, then the playback resumes nicely, automatically, afterwards. Can Tasker send out this signal to tell apps to pause playback?
