    I've noticed that after updating my Lumia 1520 to 8.1, when listening to music over wired headphones, if a text message comes in and is read aloud (or ignored) via voice command, the audio playback will resume on both headphones and the phone's loud speaker.

    The only resolution to this is to unplug the headphones, reconnect them and taping the play button to resume playback...

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    The problem still exists for me. Hopefully the new build coming out will address the issue...

    Maybe soft reset could fix it

    Nope. Soft reset only works for a while. The problem comes back after a few uses...

    today's PFD update hasn't changed this. it worked once, then the bug came back. this is extremely frustrating.

    To tell you the truth I wasn't expecting this update to fix it. Maybe the next one with passive Cortana voice activation... I'm hoping...

    Actually what I did was I turned off Cortana and turned it on again and it seems to make the problem occur less often

    Yup, I also turned off reading texts aloud.
