    Sidesync won't work on non Samsung phones, but I did post an alternative:

    Not as flexible, but it allows you to control your phone from the PC.

    If it's just some 'Text' then why not add it as a 'Lock Screen Message' not sure where it's hidden, but search for 'Lock Screen Message' and add what you like! :)

    here's mine!...

    It also shows on the 'Glance' screen (or what ever it's called on Android... I've recently defected from Windows Phone!! :D )

    anyone had this happen?

    audible suddenly wont produce sound on headphones, works fine on speaker. amazon music works fine on headphones.
    but audible plays but no sound on headphones. I'm confused. been working fine for many many months.

    complete phone reset and even went from CM to lineage OS.
    amazon music player and phone sounds work through headphones(both headphone speakers)
    Audible and beyondPod however are not working through headphones.

    I don't understand what on earth could cause this.

    I wonder if its the app given that it's persistent across phone wipes, have you tried installing an older version from apkmirror?

    i'll give it a try, but it seems to be every app, other than music. couch 2 10k isnt producing sound through headphones, nor is beyondpod.

    edit - nope even with older app, still same.

    oneplus one

    makes no difference, as i say its not just the audible app that isnt working with headphones (beyondpod, Cto10k also aren't working with headphones), and they haven't all been undated recently.
    Bet yet amazon music works fine with headphones, as do android sounds.

    Could maybe try a non CM/Lineage based OS and see if that works, maybe something like Oxygen OS (although I think the OPO is stuck on an old version for it). Otherwise not sure what could be causing the issue.

    Hmmm strange, I wonder what the shared problem of those apps is.

    Is there a good ad-blocker for chrome?

    Chrome for Android does not allow ad blocks. You need Opera or FF.

    Not really, Chrome for Android doesn't support plugins.

    If you're rooted use AdAway, otherwise you'll need to use something like NetGuard which acts as a VPN.

    Use Samsung browser - supports plugins plus it's faster and less resource hungry than chrome
