My phone got unlocked in my pocket and appears to have changed some things in the Google Now app (although I'm not sure this icon is related to that). I have never seen this icon anywhere before. I am using LG G4 stock android 6.0.

What is this icon and how can I revert whatever change caused it to be displayed?

The icon looks like an aux cable which suggests that your phone thinks that you have plugged in some headphones.

Assuming you haven't, you can try peering into the headphone socket (use a bright light) to see if anything is trapped in there. If there is you can try blowing into the port to see if that will dislodge/remove it, or turn if so the port is at the bottom and tap gently to see if that helps.

    That does make sense as google now is set up to launch music app when i plug in headphones, and google now appears as listening for a split of a second and then music app launches. Thank you for your response, it has been all cleared now when i cleaned up headphones jack. May 26, 2016 at 11:44

I had the same problem with my LG v10. So I plugged my earpiece and twisted the jack end till the symbol disappeared. I then unplugged the earpiece and voila, it was gone.
