    Why can't I get any of the media players I download to play any of the music on my phone? They will only play speech audio clips I have on my device.

    It won't work either. It only plays saved ringtones and speech files. What the hell? I paid for the full version, too, damn!!!

    Looks like you've been spoofed.
    Maybe not though. A .no media thread has been posted recently.

    I did use Google play, that's what I always use. Do you have a Pixel 2 XL or pixel 2? If so, what media player do you use to play music?

    Neither of those devices.
    But I've had that problem before.

    Have you enabled storage permissions for the music player and rebooted?

    No, the volume level sucks using the basic music player. That's my biggest complaint about this phone coming from an iPhone 6+. That phone's music player was awesome and compared to this one on the 2 XL; it's almost night and day.

    Are you attempting to play music that was copied from your iPhone? If so, it's possible that those files may be protected with Apple's DRM. I think it's more likely that the problem is with the media files rather than the media apps you've tried.

    I believe some people have reported luck if you copy the files to a PC first and then to the Pixel 2 XL. I'll see if I can dig up some other threads on the topic...

    I purchased poweramp. Im disappointed because of the notification/status bar bug. I cant click anything on notifications. And also on lock screen. The buttons are all white. Do you know how to fix that?

    There is an answer over at the Poweramp forums nienggardoce. But you have to sign up over there to download the app. clever_man developed a Quick fix for notification on Android Oreo 8.1 to fill the gap until the next major release.
