    Hi, my OPO started opening Play Music and the Google app (the one that opens up when you say OK Google) frequently today while watching a video using VLC player. This started happening today itself. I have used VLC prior to today but never faced this issue. The only different thing today was the earphone I used. Please let me know why this happens.

    PS: I did not touch the screen or say 'OK Google' while watching the video. As a matter of fact I dint say anything at all.

    It is due to the gestures turning on. Goto Settings > Gestures and disable whatever required as after this it's self explanatory

    Your not mad. My one plus one does the same and usually at the same time of day. Just launches the default music player and plays the same song each time. Very odd.

    yes, I would agree it's the music gestures. Had the same issue. That solved it.

    I had to switch my music gestures off, cause i had similar issues with music being played on it's own. But i figured it was due to the gestures.

    I had the same problem and I solved it by turning off the playback control.
    Settings: Buttons: Volume Buttons: Playback Control.

    Just wanted to validate this as the fix to my mysterious music player opening on its own as well. I've had gestures turned off the first day I got my OPO but the music player would still be found playing from time to time.

    So to make sure it truly stays off, 1. Turn off gestures for music player 2. Turn off button play back control.

    Seems playback control is a bug because I'd think it shouldn't turn on the player but work as its supposed to when the player is turned on already. I even tried it to trigger the music player. Locked phone, pressed the volume buttons, music player turned on.

    Anyways, thanks for solving that mystery rprince06!

    Yes and no. I have the same problem with my one plus X. Headphones plugged in, it suddenly mutes and not plugged in it suddenly unmutes.

    I face the same sort of issue with my oneplus one. First, I thought maybe I'mt tripping, but not every time.
    My phone played music even when I was in a meeting & that too some dark psy, man that was such an epic moment as it was hilarious that time. But I don't want it every time.
    Please help :p

    Yep, it was the music gestures in my case too. The phone would start playing my podcasts when it was in my pocket. Disabling the gestures fixed it.
