  1. It didn’t work for me I have a pixel 6 custom rom in my poco m3 device I recently ordered Oppo enco buds but they are not working properly with my phone..I connect them and immediately bluetooth crashes and turn off, the process keeps repeating until I manually turn the Bluetooth off..any solution I can try?

  2. My Google save to desktop sites kj kept dissappearing after the last update any time my phone restarts- whether I restart or it does it automatically every 1-2 days. I finally tried other browsers, then restarted. All the other wb browsers that I saved a link to desktop remained. Google Chrome is the only browser my links dissappear. Bing, duckduckgo, and Vivaldi browsers all save to homescreen links stayed. Chrome sites say it is an android issue. I have the note 20+. Because the 3 other browsers had no issues saving and keep the links after restart. So if have to say it’s not an android issue, it’s a Google Chrome issue.
