Re: Music apps starts when i plug in a headset

Hi @Jokke93,


As @pravi suggested there is an app called Smart Connect that can be programed to automatically start apps when for example a headset is connected.


To disable this function go to: Smart Connect > Events > Music on the go > Off. Alternatively if you want to change so that Spotify starts when you plug in a headset go to: Smart Connect > Events > Tap Music on the go > Edit event > Tap the arrow > Start an app > Spotify > Finnish.


Let me know how it goes or if there is anything else you are wondering about.
