• 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.

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.


I found this question by trying to find how to remap bluetooth headphones buttons Volume up and down to switch tracks

If any1 get here by same reason solution for me was to use MacroDroid

Just add event on volume up or down (here u pick option to dont change volume or was it switch to previous state whatever)

Add action next or previous track

In condition/require (idk its proper name in english i mean 3rd tab) add if bluetooth is connected

On top of that yo can add task to turn of bluetooth when you turn of ur BT headphones

Works with locked screen WITHOUT ROOT but for some reason only next track works properly

Physical volume up and down (on phone) works just fine but whatever its enough for me

If you want to change volume just pause music and volume buttons will work as intended


I am an idiot. Just discovered if you double tap the left earbud it rewinds and right earbud fast forwards. These are Axloie $35 earbuds. Surprised. Haven't seen mention to this in the documentation.
