• OnePlus 5t, Android 9.0, not rooted
  • Bluetooth 5.0 headset with one media button

A single tab on the media button starts the Google Voice Control / Assistant, there is no way to change a tab on the button to play/pause for example - on the headset's side.

The only software solution to disable Google Voice popping up always when I press the button was to disable the Google-App completely. But this stops the media-button from working completely.

After hours of trying, searching nothing worked for me.

My goal is to archive that a tab leads to play/pause music.

  • If the headset manufacturer offers an app for configuring the headset you should check it out if it offers a way to reconfigure the button. – Robert Nov 24 '19 at 13:02

I solved my issue by using a app called AutoVoice in combination with Tasker.

In Android Settings, Apps, Default Apps, Assist & Voice Input I selected AutoVoice.

In Tasker I created a Profile which is a Event triggered by Plugins > AutoVoice > AutoVoice BT Pressed and the connected Task contains only Media Control, Switch Pause, Simulate Media Key is activated and I selected a music app as App, in my case Spotify.

This works just fine.

Let me know if you have the same problem and have issues with my solution.
