Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).

I have a Galaxy Note 9 with Android Pie (version 9.0) installed and have an issue with it.

From time to time as most people do I listen to music on my phone with Bluetooth headset. I also have a Bluetooth receiver in the car for hands free calling when driving.

Those aren't an issue in themself, the issue is whenever the phone connects to the Bluetooth device in the car it automatically starts playing the music I was previously listening to. It only occurs with the car device because that automatically switches on with the car so automatically connects. I can even have been listening through USB speakers previously and it will still start automatically when connected to Bluetooth device.

It doesn't seem to start the App that I used (eg Google Play Music, TuneIn radio app or Amazon Music) but I get the play control notification ( << || >>) in the notifications area.

Its easy enough to get rid of, tap the pause and then swipe the notification away. That's if I notice it, it could be that I don't notice and it is potentially streaming music (TuneIn or Amazon Music) using my mobile data, not a massive data usage but shouldn't be happening.

Is there a setting in Android somewhere that I can change to stop music automatically playing whenever I reconnect to a Bluetooth device? Autoplay setting or something.

Thanks
Rob

Starter acoustic guitar for use with the Chord Buddy, Android smartphone, and sound amplification

I purchased this thing called the Chord Buddy https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OABXOMG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and am considering this option for a starter acoustic guitar https://www.amazon.com/Fender-FA-115-Acoustic-Strings-Instructional/dp/B0092V7WJ0/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=guitar&qid=1571024587&sr=8-4.

I don't want to spend a fortune but I would like to give myself some long-term options in case I actually enjoy it.

Is it possible to have this guitar interface with my cell phone in some way?

I want to make sure I am going down a reasonably flexible path before dropping another $150-$200 on a guitar, etc first.

Your thoughts and some guidance here would be greatly appreciated.

Respond with a text message automatically.

I have been brainstorming for a while regarding wording that is least likely to upset even the most demanding person or client and I am getting closer.

I have come up with this auto-text message so far:  

I am sorry that I missed your call. Since this phone is currently set up for outgoing calls and text messages only, please respond with a text. This will give me a chance to wrap up whatever I am in the middle of, and give your call the undivided attention that it deserves. Thank you for understanding and I look forward to talking with you.

What are your thoughts about the approach to the auto-response and how can I implement it so that it happens automatically, after x rings, or after I have forced it to be passed to the caller even sooner.

This approach is intended to make communication clear more effective for both parties.

Hello

     Currently my android app uses apk on google play store to distribute my app.
 i want to switch to "app bundle"  (https://developer.android.com/platform/technology/app-bundle) approach instead of using apk approach.
i generated app bundle (.aab ) file successfully, my questions:
Q1) if i upload app bundle to google play store, does it allow to the existing users to just update the app instead of uninstalling current version of the app and res-installing latest version of app ( app bundle one)
please let mw know

Thanks,

Hi,

We've just transitioned our Engineers to using Microsoft Outlook on their Android phones and some emails are missing images (red X) and some email have the image distorted (stretched). However it's not universal, sometimes it's intermittent and it's only happening for some users, any ideas ?

Hi all,
I have a Huawei P9 Lite Mini. The screen is broken and black, is impossible to interact and nothing appears. How can I recover all data inside my phone?

1) I should try all recovery software as Dr. Fone, Mobilke go and so on;
2) I already tried OTC Cable but nothing happens;
3) The device has not root power;
4) Obviously, without any interaction, is impossible to activate the debug mode

I also tried "adb", but the device appears as "unauthorized". Thank you very much.

Attach pictures to a Facebook messenger message from an online folder or album.

I would like to be able to attach pictures to a Facebook message from an online folder or album, and not just from the hodgepodge of pictures that have somehow made it into the root of the local gallery on my phone.

The two online services that I am currently considering using are from Microsoft and from Google, but neither of those folders or albums seems to be accessible from my Android Galaxy Note 8 phone.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have a text area with auto text choices that come up when I receive a call. If I catch it fast enough, I can respond with text but if I don't, I can't get the choices back.

It says collapse automatically to an area at the very bottom of the screen which is handy, but even that area seems to disappear at about 3 seconds or less.

I would like for that area to stay on the screen even after the call has ended so that I could just press it and send an auto text.

Assistance in making this happen is greatly appreciated.

My Google Note 8 is stuck in reboot loop.

I've tried recommended methods and even though several statements seem to indicate a firmware issue as opposed to a hardware one, no solution seems to be effective.

I need to find another phone to replace this defect.

Suggestions through Amazon on something that won't break the bank would be greatly appreciated.

I would prefer a Google device with stock Android and unlocked.

I will put in my SIM from ATT when I get it and hope for the best.

Hi,

I have a Samsung Note 9 phone.

Sometimes I would get a call from someone while being in a call already with another person.

The person trying to call me never knows that I was in a call with someone else so don't ring back.

To the person trying to ring me, their phone rings for a bit and then goes to voicemail.

I would like to have the person trying to call me in this situation given a message saying "person in a call" or busy.

Is there a setting for this on Note 9 phone?

Thanks,
Robbie

Say, Wasavi offers to send whatsapp messages to Google Contacts and Google Groups (in Google Contacts). It uses Whatsapp Business.
The only functionality I'm looking for is to send Whatsapp messages to Google groups (in Google Contacts) stored on the Android phone.
Wasavi offers a whole lot of additional functionality which is not needed. The application can either run in Windows and use Whatsapp Web for Business or on the android phone. the main functionality it needs is to be able to send Whatsapp messages to Google Contacts and the Groups within those contacts. Thanks

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

We have a requirement from a client to have staff ALWAYS enter a password when connecting to their RDS environment. We have enabled this through GPO, and it works well for connections through RDP. However, when the user connects through the new HTML 5 RDweb client - the clients browser may ask to autofill the credentials. If it does, no password prompt. If the client connects in through an Android or iOS app, they save the password upon creating the connection - again no password prompt to connect. Mac client - same thing.

Is there a way that anyone knows to require a password EVERY TIME regardless of the connection client. Perhaps to ask again for a password once on the remote desktop server.

Hi,

I use a Samsung Note 9 phone for conference calls.

These conference calls are recorded using a call recorder app on my phone.

I always get permission from those that are part of the conference calls so it is okay to record them.

We have tried different call recorders for Samsung phone but got mixed results.

Sometimes, the call recorder that we use currently only records my voice or other person's voice is very quiet when recording is played back.

It is expected that all people on the call should be recorded and heard when played back.

What would you recommend as best call recorder to use for the Samsung Note 9?

Thanks,
Robbie

This is a huge issue in the company and we're trying to find a solution. We want the contacts in the GAL to be able to sync with the users smart phone. It seems like this wouldn't be rocket science, but can't seem to get it to work. I have ActiveSync on the phone and it authenticates to my account because when using Outlook app, the contacts appear there. Listed in my contacts app is the Activesync account, however NO contacts show up under it as if it's empty. I've checked to ensure that Contacts is checked as far as syncing goes. but can't seem to get it to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
