I'm looking for a way to have Tasker read the currently playing song title and artist out loud or flash it on the screen. I have the output part down (using 'Say' and/or 'Flash') but I'm having trouble getting the song info. I typically use Pandora (so I'd accept if the task only worked on Pandora), but also using Spotify.
I have tried both %MTRACK and %NTITLE, (neither of which ever seem to be set), and Media Utilities. Doing this entirely with Tasker and Secure Setting would be preferable (I'd rather not download a whole bunch of other apps/plugins). Also, the device is not rooted, and I'd rather not have to root it just for this.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 running the stock Android Lollipop OS.
