Does This Work For Other Games As Well?

As a matter of fact, the answer is yes! As an example, many of your favorite streamers or Youtubers may choose to adjust Genshin Impact's main volume so they can run their own music for their audiences to hear while playing games!

Generally, if you are keen on playing mobile games using your own music, adjusting the volume settings from the game itself should be able to solve your music problems for free.

However, you must make sure that your mobile devices can handle both the music player application and the mobile games themselves, as playing games while listening to third-party music requires the music player application to run in the background. The sound you hear requires your phone to support it by giving it performance allocation.

Therefore, this might affect your gameplay experience as you may feel that Genshin Impact will be a bit laggy. The steps above should also cause no technical issues, so if you encounter any audio problems in Genshin Impact or any freezing screens in Genshin Impact, you should take a look into them!
