    Very frequently my music player turns on. It seems to be tied to some change of state of my Android and mostly when wearing my Bluetooth. I will get an Alert for something and the music will start with the last song I was listening to when I intentionally used the music player. Can't seem to stop this and it is very annoying. Ideas?????

    The same thing happened to me with a previous version of the Play Music app. I went into Settings > Apps and opened Play Music and uninstalled all updates. That cleared it up. Since then there have been one or two updates to Play Music and I am up to date and have not had the issue reappear. You could try updating the Play Music app to the most current version....or uninstall all updates for Play Music back to the stock version #. Might help.

    This is because it's a "system" app and not a downloaded app. When you open up your application manager it defaults to your downloaded apps. You want to scroll to the left until it shows "all" at the very top. Then scroll down to "Music", go in and click on "clear defaults".
    Of course you'll want to follow these directions if you're using Play Music or other music app where you're having this problem.
    Good luck!

    Went in as you suggested and the "Clear Defaults" was grayed out. Could not change. Also could not delete updates as that did not show up. Other thoughts?

    Try clearing cache & data (within the same app), then reboot device. Since this Bluetooth related, you could also try deleting your Bluetooth device. Then go in and re-scan and re-pair your Bluetooth and see if that helps.
    Hang in there, hopefully we can help you narrow it down and identify the culprit.

    What version of Play Music do you have? I have version 5.4.1413N and have not had the issue you described using that version. I was mistaken earlier...there is another version available on the Play Store. Since you don't have the Uninstall Updates option available, maybe there is an update available on the Play Store for the Play Music app? Have you tried to update that app to a newer version? There is no guarantee that is the issue...and CR6's advice is very good...I would follow that also. Like I mentioned earlier, I had a very similar issue earlier this year and it was only with a specific version of the Play Music app (just don't remember which version #) and updating to a newer version or uninstalling updates stopped it for me. Can't hurt to try.

    You guys keep referring to "Play Music" and mine is actually called "Music" and I have version 6.0.1. So far, everything I have tried with deleting cache, etc. does not seem to be working. Not sure if I should go to the play store and download a totally different program or what?????

    There are actually both. "Music" is used for playing downloaded files, mp3s etc. "Play Music" is associated with the music you download off the Play Store.
