    Poweramp stopped working after the Oct security update. Anyone know of a decent amp app for the phone?

    You can't amplify the audio, all you can do is control it (Poweramp doesn't actually amplify). Which particular function(s) is/are you most concerned with? (Amplifying the audio very much above what the P4 already does will just cause distortion, not louder audio.)

    Try uninstalling then install again?

    I understand power amp DOES NOT amplify the music. It just won't work. Just it will display the cover for the album, but will not play. And uninstalled and re-installed and still dead. Worked after the 11 update, but stopped the day after the security update. Might just be a coincidence.

    Did you check and see if there's a update?

    I uninstalled the app, then installed I have to assume the latest version was loaded.

    Downloaded another app that works to allow me to listen to some music when walking the dogs in the AM; hopefully, Poweramp and/or Google gets an update to fix the problem. Not earth shattering.

    I'm not sure that's entirely true.

    I just moved from an LG V20 to this phone (4XL) and have always used PowerAmp. Most LG flagship phones have Quad DAC's which allows PowerAmp to amplify your music.
    But, the Quad DAC is actually providing the extra volume.

    So.. I suppose what was stated is actually true.

    I'm pretty sure the Pixel phones don't have Quad DAC's.

    Anyway.. The V20 was a great phone all around in its day (which was up to Nov 27/2020 for me) but with every Android version it got a little long in the tooth.

    I still use the V20 for tunes.
