    Recently, my phone has been playing random piano music. It happens around 5-10 times a day or more, I even had it play 3 times in 30 minutes. This is music that I have never heard before, nor have in my play music. It doesn't have a set time it just plays randomly; even when I'm on google , on the home screen or using an app.
    Turning the phone off will not turn it off. A couple ways I have stopped it playing is swiping down the notification board or shutting the phone down. I have tried deleting all my game apps that I have downloaded that might have caused this but nothing has changed. Is this some kind of virus and how do I stop it?

    The phone is a Samsung Galaxy S7 with the latest updates.

    Try going to Settings then ""G"" Google app. Then look and see what apps you have connected. Maybe it's an app or website notification that's connected to your device. If so just long present and disconnected from your device. Now some launchers has notifications connected with them due to ads. If you think that's the culprit, you may want to check in your Device administrator also in Settings.

    Thank you! This seems to have worked. It hasn't played once today.
