Accidental default app

Kimbo Slice 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 4 years ago 3
I selected XiiaLive as the default application on my galaxy s 3 for Dropbox audio files. XiiaLive does not play the file and I can't find anywhere how to remove that feature. Help?

The following steps should reset the default launch settings for XiiaLive:

  1. Go to your devices Settings and tap on Apps (Might be called Applications manager or on older phones simply Applications).
  2. Find XiiaLive and tap to open the App info page.
  3. Scroll down and under Launch by default tap on the button Clear defaults. That should remove all default launch settings for XiiaLive.

This does not solve the problem. For XiiaLive there is nothing to clear under Launch by default however attempting to play an mp3 file within dropbox opens it.
If the Clear defaults button is disabled it means XiiaLive is not the default application for anything on the device. Please note that the app will always be shown as an option to open audio files. However, once you select to always open with XiiaLive, Android will always automatically open the file with XiiaLive without providing the suggested apps lists that support opening the file. Another scenario is that XiiaLive is the only app that supports a particular file. In this case Android will automatically redirect to XiiaLive. Hope that answers your issue. If not please provide us with a bit more details about your issue. Thanks!
