I don't know if this is a "feature" that was enabled in the latest Chrome update, but as of the past few days, I've had this happen and annoy me to no end:

- listen to music on Poweramp or Pandora (phone is plugged in to my car stereo via AUX / headphone jack
- open Chrome browser
- phone automatically "lowers volume to prevent hearing damage" (or whatever that annoying pop up says).

If i reset the volume back up, it will lower itself automatically every time I open Chrome.

This will automatically happen only with Chrome, and no other browser. Anyone else seeing this?

(bluetooth is not an option as I don't have that in my car)

My Sirius/XM radio app does that too. I have it plugged in through the headphone jack and every time I turn it back on, it resets to lower. Very annoying. Should be able to check mark something like "don't remind me again"

I have a similar problem with Audible. Same annoying pop up and volume reset. It happens randomly with the phone locked and unlocked.

I have never noticed that it lowers the volume after opening Chrome though. That part was new to me. Maybe I just never noticed it before

This issue seems to be getting worse for me. When using Audible or any music app (including the built in one) I can't go more than 20 minutes before it glitches, then lowers the volume with the pop up about hearing protection. After that it just stops whatever is playing completely in most cases. I can't tell if it's just mine or if it's a common problem. I'm not rooted and am thinking about returning it to Verizon for a replacement... Again.

Try Hearing Saver which you can download from Play. Despite the name I think it will do what you want. Works for me.

weird . i haven't made any changes to the phone, but as of a few days ago this problem has gone away. i did notice that Chrome rolled out an update - maybe this bug was fixed? hopefully it doesn't come back
