    Hello everyone...i started a thread regarding oneplus media output issue...
    The issue was ringer volume would increase or decrease instead of media volume in apps like facebook and instagram whenever i watched video on these social media platforms....
    The other issue was no ringtone sound on receiving calls
    Third issue was no message notification sound
    Fourth issue was whatsapp audio call would be on speaker no matter i switched to earpiece mode...the voice was heard on speaker only....
    All these issues have now been resolved....by deleting just one app...and it was Alibaba app that was causing all these issues....i uninstalled the alibaba app and all the problems were gone...i installed the alibaba app just to be sure that this was the reason...after installing alibaba app all problems came back....
    So if anyone is facing this issue then kindly uninstall the alibaba app and use web version of this app on chrome on any other web browser...
    I hope this thread helps ...
    Take care

    This actually worked! It's crazy how a chinese app is doing this. Thanks for the update!

    It is a reminder to check the permissions an app asks for (its an entry on the Play store listing), there are lots of apps out there that ask for a weirdly/sometimes suspiciously large number of rights - and those rights can be both accidentally and deliberately used. The Alibaba app for example lists the following, most of which you accept just by downloading the app:
    This app has access to (check especially the "other" section):
    • take pictures and videos
    • read phone status and identity
    • read the contents of your USB storage
