    Is there anybody else that has this weird problem? My phone (almost) randomly starts playing some music. I don't have any music app opened and the is no song bar in the notification area as normally when something is playing. The only way to stop it is to start playing some other music which stopes the first one and then stoping that. I say it happens almost randomly as to me it seems that it is mostly triggered when I (not) gently put my phone on the table or it falls out of my hand.

    A bit of rant: This is really embracing when it happens in public and my phone starts shouting out music. I also have the networking issue. I am terribly disappointed in OnePlus. I had the One and 5T which worked great. Now the 8T is probably my last one. It was nice while it lasted.

    Please check if you have screen gestures on. A simple mis-swipe can play/pause the music. Check your settings for gestures in lock screen settings, also your notifications might have music in drop down causing it to play. Hope this helps you with the issue.

    As mentioned above, is it always the same music? Could it be from an app? Try clearing all cache through the bios.

    • Switch phone off
    • Hold vol down and power button at once
    • Add security code
    • Choose appropriate language
    • Choose wipe cache and follow instructions
    • Choose restart phone

    It's not always the same music although it is music I normally listen to. Do you mean "**********" app? I did at that time. I removed it now but the problem still occurs.

    Yes, I indeed had the Music Control gestures turned on. I turned it off. I shell report on this in a week or two to be sure it was the problem. Thanks.

    I have disabled this gesture on my phone because the phone many times started to play music when i was putting the phone to my pocket or placing on a desk.

    I have this on since day 1 but the music never played randomly, both with AOD on and off.
    What music app do you use? I use Black Player EX.

    The same issue was already on oneplus one.
    Story from a vacation:
    I've captured a photo in a historical church and putted the phone in my back pocket. There were some ambient church songs. After a while i have noticed that i also hear linkin park. I was surprised when some person asked me to stop playing music.

    Last 3 years I use AIMP to play music.
