Help Calls interrupt streaming media


Nov 20, 2020
I have an S10e with the latest android update (11). I am using the Samsung phone app ( My default ringtone is "Silent" with "Vibrate while ringing" off. My contacts are assigned into groups, some of which can "ring" my phone and some of which can't. That way, only numbers I choose (i.e., not Robo calls or some contacts) can ring my phone.

I like to listen to streaming media. When a call is received - even if that number is not assigned a ringtone - my streaming media is interrupted. Is there a way to shunt such calls immediately (and without interrupting my streaming media) to voice mail? Or some other way to keep streaming media playing while receiving a non-ringing call?
