Just deleted and re-downloaded the app
Same thing volume drops by half every time I play Scrabble
The only improvement is that I can now use the music from Scrabble which was greyed out before
but it's not my music

There are other threads on this problem, as well. This is so annoying and has been going on for over a year.  Opening Scrabble (for me on iOS) causes the volume in any other app (eg Spotify, Apple Music) to significantly drop. This cannot be that difficult of a bug to isolate and resolve!!!!

My experience on Android is similar: on starting the game, the SCRABBLE app sets the (global) media volume to the level that you specify for the background music.  It sets the volume back up for the video adverts played after every move.  So with the music level turned down in the app's settings I get background music at zero volume and video adverts at a restored high volume.  

 

It would be really nice if the music could be turned off rather than turned down to silent (but still 'playing') and the media volume not be adjusted by the app.  That way, I can listen to my choice of music uninterrupted.  At the moment it jumps around.
