Can automation apps (such as AutomateIt or Tasker) for Android play sound files during calls for incoming calls?

The “play sound” file option is in a action and “call” is one of triggers.

    am looking for workaround to play custom audio file inside the call and not outside the call.

    Additionally to play custom audio file while call is put on hold

    The sound will play on the phone of the user making the call and not within the call stream

    Yes i understand. Yes i understand. Are you sure Are you sure that this process would play the custom sound file for both persons in call or whether the sound file would be played only on phone of the user on whose phone this automation created??

    With AutomateIt you simply need to create a new rule that uses the "Call State Trigger" and select the appropriate setting (incoming call -> all contacts, select contact, manually enter phone number or "unknown" contact), Click "Next" or swipe to the Action tab and select the "Play Sound Action" and browse for the sound you want to play.
    Click "Next" or swipe to the Rule tab, name your rule and click "Save".
    That's it !
