I like the feature to use button on the hands-free (headset) to play / pause music. I have a bunch of music players installed on my phone: Apollo, Sony Walkman, Play Music, etc. When I use the hands-free button to play music, every time it plays music from any one of the players. Is there any way to set a default player to play music on the hands-free button press?

Say for example, I want only Sony Walkman to play music when I press button on the hands-free instead of launching any other player randomly.

Can this be done?

I have a Sony Xperia Neo V (code name: Haida) running CyanogenMod 9. Android version 4.0.4.

You could check the playstore for headset control apps. Having a Philips headset, Philips Headset works perfectly for me -- and lets me define which player app to launch as soon as the headset is connected, plus gives me a bunch of control options for the headset's single button (e.c. click for play/pause or take call, long-press to increase volume, click twice to skip a title or reject a call, and more).

There are many more similar apps available. Quite famous examples include e.g. JAYS Headset Control (which did not work that well with my Philips headset -- but that may be caused by the headset itself), and Headset Button Controller. Simply search the playstore for "headset control" for more options.

Most of popular music players have settings to override default behavior of hands free buttons.

Check your Sony walkman have that settings?

  • Nope. None of the music apps I have have this setting. And Sony Walkman was just an example. I might wanna set Play Music as default. Commented Dec 6, 2012 at 13:58
  • To check it I installed the playerpro music player and there is a headset settings in settings menu. It worked very well.

  • I don't know what app are you talking about. (Not willing to switch to any other music player now..) But I have used some players which had a setting to enable / disable hands-free music control. However, this did NOT assure that only that app was controlled... And that's what my question is. Commented Dec 6, 2012 at 15:54
