comment Prevent particular website pages from appearing in Google search [phone]
You could check if Chrome on Android can run "UserScripts". If it does, take a look at Google site: Tool (Site results / Exclude sites). That's what I use with Firefox on my desktop, works fine.

comment Push notification over my phone dosen't work in my home only
Might be an issue with your WiFi router, more specifically ports blocked/firewall. Though I've never experienced that, and I didn't open any ports for that specifically. Are you using any firewall app or permission manager on your device?

comment Why does Google always need personal data?
I know, using it currently. But my answer is 1) more than 3 years old now, and was 2) not intended to include a "full listing". Additional options can be found in my listing of Permission Managers.

comment Rooted Android device and more regular updates?
"I have installed CyanogenMod in my unrooted device unsuccessfully" – resulting in a rooted device. CM offers OTA AFAIK, by the way.

comment “Google Play Services which some of your applications rely on is not supported by your device”
Have you made sure the GApps package you flashed matches your Android version? 20130812 sounds a bit old to be anything newer than for Kitkat (I'd rather guess JellyBean here, as Kitkat was released 20131031). What Android version are you running?

comment GALAXY S6: Can't Install APK, not enough storage: 46.6 GB free. HELP?
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Output of df (from a terminal or adb shell) would help here. Alternatively, screenshots from Settings › Storage I have a suspicion (the usual one), but need hard data for that. // Also: See our insufficient-memory tag-wiki for background.

comment Is accessing Google Play Music subscription files legal?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about legal advice, which is explicitly stated off-topic by our help center.

comment Is accessing Google Play Music subscription files legal?
Other than @GiantTree I'm pretty sure it is not the correct site, as our help center clearly states it as off-topic: Legal questions. In short, you could also ask whether circumventing DRM is legal. In both cases, answers might depend on what country you live in, and even considering that might be difficult to answer. The site GiantTree referred to might indeed be better suited – but check their /help/on-topic page first to make sure.

comment How to download an app from another region/country?
Your comment contradicts with your question then, giyad: you ask how to download an app from another region/country, but your issue is that app doesn't install because it's not compatible with your device. The two are not even remotely related.See:Why are some apps on the market incompatible with my device? / How does Google Play work out if an app is compatible with my device?

comment How can I download apps from play store directly to my external SD card?
Have you checked with out insufficient-memory tag-wiki? To achieve what you've asked for would require root. The tag wiki might hold some alternatives.

comment How to download an app from another region/country?
The VPN solution mentioned in How can I circumvent regional restrictions in Google's Play Store? doesn't work either?Or the "Hola app" mentioned in How do I download an app from another country?

comment Home Automation Apps for Android - what is important to consider?
The usual stuff I'd say: well supported/maintained (updates), good rating. And of course supporting your hardware. Good choice is multi-protocol, in case you switch to another system / add hardware from another system. FHEM/andFHEM is a good example for that. As for the "multitude of software options": See my list on Home Automation :)

Admittedly, trouble in this context is rare – but cannot be completely ignored ;)
