    The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Verizon) with Android version 7.1.1 will not allow any other music player to be set as default. Even after uninstalling the Google Play Music and any others, I can't make Foobar2000 the default player. I've gone down both the Systems>App manager>Foobar2000>Set as default, and the Settings>Default Apps>Set as default>Foobar2000 paths and there is no trigger for actually setting the default. Uninstalling every other player and opening an audio file from the file manager just opens a play-from-file generic player (that doesn't even have a name) but offers no choice for calling Foobar or any other app.

    Between things like this, the Bixby assistant that you can't disable, and the Bixby button you can't reassign I'm beginning to feel like I bought an iPhone. Stuck with what someone else thinks is best instead of being able to make my own decisions.

    Default App Manager makes it a little bit easier to set and unset the default app for almost any function. (Audio and Audio Streaming are two of the choices you can set to the app you want.)

    I'm on an S8 and I get asked to set a default app first time I use whatever type of file.

    Nope. Doesn't work. As noted by app reviewers on its Play Store page, Default App Manager doesn't actually change anything. At least not for the phone and software I indicated in my question.
