Turn the button on a wired headset into a remote control for your music player - and much more!

Headset Button Controller is very configurable, allowing you to play music, change tracks, adjust volume, answer phone calls, start Voice Command and many other things, just by clicking the button on your headset.

Headset Button Controller is shipped with a powerful default configuration, but you can change almost every action performed. Once you have configured it with your preferences, it runs in the background using almost no CPU. It has been tested with a wide variety of different Android devices and music apps and works with both single-button headsets, and Android-specific 3-button headsets.

Default configuration for single-button headsets (center button for 3-button headsets):
* Single press: play / pause (+ answer call / end call)
* Double press: next track (+ decline call / mute microphone)
* Triple press: previous track
* Quadruple press: previous track (2x)
* Long press: Volume control [2]
* Press and hold: Fast forward [3]
* Double press and hold: Rewind [3]
* Triple press and hold: disabled

All of the above options are configurable to any of the following:
* Stop
* Play / pause
* Next track
* Previous track
* Previous track (2x)
* Mute / unmute
* Voice command
* Voice search
* Redial last number
* Say current time (Text-To-Speech required)
* Launch app
* Launch shortcut
* Tasker task [1]
* Switch profile

Additionally the long press options are configurable to any of the following:
* Volume control [2]
* Rewind [3]
* Fast forward [3]

[1] Requires the app 'Tasker'
[2] While the button is held down, the volume is initially reset to the minimum limit (see below) and then raised until the button is released
[3] Not every music player app supports rewind / fast forward

With a 3-button headset, volume control is also configurable with the left and right headset buttons.

Music app selection
Headset Button Controller controls the currently running music app. You are also able to explicitly specify which installed music app you want to control.

Volume control features
Headset Button Controller remembers the music volume when the headphone is unplugged and can restore it when the headphone is plugged in again.
* Min volume limit: Start volume level of the 'volume control' command
* Max volume limit: Ensures that the headset music volume never exceeds this limit

Call features
You are also able to control calls with the headset button:
* answer call / end call on single press (configurable)
* decline call / mute microphone on double press (configurable)
* adjust volume during a call (see volume control)
* announce caller name (Text-To-Speech required)
You can also configure Headset Button Controller to automatically answer an incoming call after a configurable delay.

Headset plug in / out
You can configure an action to be performed when the headset gets plugged in / out.

You can create different 'configuration profiles' which you can switch between. Add a widget or a shortcut to your home screen to easily change your profile. It is also possible to switch profile from the 'Tasker' or 'Locale' app (Locale plug-in). All settings can be backed up on SD card.

This is the trial version of Headset Button Controller. With this trial version you can try out this app works with your phone / music player correctly before buying.

Recently changed in this version

Fix audio routing for headphones.

new "Pressy mode":
Route audio through speakers even when headset is plugged in.
Hint: Create a separate profile for pressy to easily switch between normal headset and pressy.

* Jelly Bean: The long press commands of the center button are reserved by Google Now and cannot be configured with this app.
* Headset Button Controller cannot support the separate volume control buttons on the iPhone headset - this is a limitation of the Android framework.

    Works great with S4 kitkat, Shuttle+ player and Beats in-ear headphones. Except long press activates S voice. But pause, next track and volume up or down are all I need. Great app.

    Works well on my device with Panasonic RP-TCM125 headset. First time there was a problem and could not recognize any click. Installed another player and it start working, although I can't use the hi-fi mode without the default player. Tried the original headset for my TCL and it worked with the default music player with HIFI! Next-switched to the Panasonic TCM125 and they worked! Earlier I change

    Its a very good application working fine with Poweramp, Rocket Player & Google Music on my Moto E (with Kitkat 4.4.4). You need to switch on "obey headset control" in Poweramp & Rocket Player setting. Only long press button option not working but all other function are working fine. Tested with JBL J01A & Skullcandy 2XL Whip headset. Five star from myside.

    I have AIAIAI TMA-1 headphones which i use with my Sony xperia z1 compact and i wanted to try the trial version of this app before buying the full version. Everything works fine except the volume increase and decrease button's. Im just wondering if this issue can be fixed.
