Is it possible to map a Bluetooth speaker button to a specific task on my Samsung pad?

Darren Reynolds February 24, 2013

I’ve got a Gear4 (model PG748) Bluetooth speaker, which has a button that when connected to my phone allows me to answer a call. However, I also attach it to my Samsung pad and wanted to know if it is possible to map the button to forward the track.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

    if both are connected to the same speaker, you can only stream audio from one source at a time, because when one device is already Paired and Connected with your bluetooth speaker the second device can't see it.

    what are you trying to do exactly, answering your phone from samsung?

      No, I want to be able to remap the button on speaker that when it is connected to my tablet, rather than the "answer" function of the button which is redundant as my tablet is wif-fi only, i want it to skip to the next music track.

      see if this application can help
      Bluetooth Launch
      it is for headsets!!

      Bluetooth App. Launcher (Free)

      perhaps this MRK Bluetooth Autoplay
      have music played automatically (your system's default, or Cubed player).

      well this depends on the Bluetooth device! you have to try similar applications to see which one support your speaker, or contact one of the android programmers like the ones you tried above and ask them to add your speaker in their application. Or try a lite free version which has a paid version and ask the question perhaps in this case update can be easier.

      or contact Gear4 support team maybe they know a specific android application.
