I just found an app for you guys who have a broken speaker but dont wanna get a new device. SoundAbout let your audio through the earpiece [link] . Works on my old S3 mini like a charm
Install SoundAbout. In the app, go to Connectable Devices/Wired Headset Settings/Wired Headset Microphone and disable it. Then the phone will never assume the headphones have a microphone and won't try to start voice search.
What's happening is that the jack in the G3 has really tight tolerances and this causes some headphone plugs not to line up properly in the jack, shorting the contact that is used for the button on headsets with microphones.
Also make sure there isn't any lint in the jack, because even a small amount of lint in the bottom of the jack can be enough to cause the wrong contacts to touch.
Have they fixed the issue yet where when you have bluetooth speakers/headsets attached, notifications and ringtones will still play out of both the phone and the speakers?
Android has had this glitch since 1.0. If you have a headset attached, Google, it means you want all the audio to come through it, not just media-audio. Apple products don't have this problem.
I doubt it's fixed, and there are 3rd party hacks (Soundabout) to work around the issue, but a man can dream.
Having same problem on my Redmi Note 3. Phone is stuck in headphone mode. Some of my friends also experienced this issue with redmi note 3 or note 4.
I am using sound about, which is a very useful app for phones having this problem. You can create headphones on/off widget like this.
I am using it from past 7 months. I didn't replaced headphone jack because service centre guy told me that It might take 10+ days to repair. I decided not to repair it because soundabout is working fine for me.
Did you/Will you replace headphone jack?
Use soundabout. It allows you to choose audio output for each category. I have same problem with my redmi note 3. (It's been 3-4 months now). My friend also had this problem but luckily it disappeared after some days. May be headphone jack of RN3 is very sensitive.
Soundcloud also has widgets. Keep headphone widget & mic widget on your home screen so that You can change controls from easily. Don't forget to enable that autostart thing from security app. So that app can work in background.
Btw did ypu try restarting your phone when earphones are connected?
- Force audio playback through speaker/headphones
(So that music doesn't accidentally play through the speakers)
I once removed a headphone plug from my laptop using this method: [link], was quite nervous but worked fine.
You can force the audio to come out of the speakers instead of the jack with an app like this [link]
SoundAbout is rather useful, it let's you easily change the output of a sound stream. [link]
You can do things like having the media output through the speakers, notifications output through wired headsets, and call audio output through bluetooth or whatever, great for the car.
I use Soundabout
The dev recently crippled the free version, so you'll have to pay (pro version is $3). I use it, it works just as you'd expect, and it also handles other cases, like connected to bluetooth devices or different types of headsets.
Yes. It's possible. Use Sound About.
I am having same problem on Redmi note 3. It was my fault though. I dropped my phone when earphone was connected. I tried to catch the phone & while doing that by mistake i pulled earphone cable. After that , my phone is thinking that i have attached earphones that has mic, even when earphone is not inserted. If i use 2-pin earphone( that does not have mic ) , when i connect it to the phone , it activates 'ok Google'. Probably the headphone jack socket is damaged.
If you didn't dropped your phone or don't have moisture/ water damage to headphone jack. Try switching headphones type by going to settings > sound & vibration > audio settings
For anyone having trouble with audio routing, SoundAbout is an excellent app.
Does not even require root, IIRC. I use this as Nexus 6P devices do not always recognize headsets (with mic). Regular headphones are working fine, however
I have what sounds like the same audio problem, though I found that restarting the phone solved it around 99% of the time for me.
I'm currently using SoundAbout as a workaround to save myself from restarting the phone several times a day.
Havn't found a way yet. Don't think there is one without root or an additional app.
The S6 deals with notifications/alarms/ringers on a completely different tier than Media. Notifications/Alarms/Ringtone will always come from the speaker but Media will go through the headphones/headset if plugged in. No idea why the fuck Samsung did it this way but if you install SoundAbout then you can force it to do what you want.
You can use an application called sound about whats happening is your phone thinks headphones are plugged in, this overrides that
Look up an application called SoundAbout.
It allows you to choose what type of input is connected, I used it when my old phone had a shitty headphone jack that would constantly disconnect/connect.
You know what here you go.
This is definitely a known bug. I use SoundAbout since it also helps force audio output with certain aux cables not staying detected.
To address your issue, go to SoundAbout > Connectable devices > Wired headset settings, and uncheck Wired Headset microphone.
So this is an issue with the OPO, there's a work-around/fix for this with any type of headphones with an inline mic.
There's an app available on google play, SoundAbout [link]
Here you can change a setting, there was a thread with screenshots but I can't find it for the life of me so I'll just write a step by step.
Doing this your inline mic on all headphones should work perfectly fine, drop me an inbox if you still have any issues and I'll send you my exact settings.
I think the answer is no. You can only split phone audio and media audio.
Maybe get an extension lead and mount it somewhere closer?
Edit: Not sure, but maybe this could help?
At second glance, probably not.
Edit 2: Not looking good...
SoundAbout on the Play Store has settings to detect or ignore the inline mic on your headphones, so perhaps setting it to ignore would force the phone to use the built in mic, I haven't tried it myself on a Pixel though.
I don't have that device, but just to rule out some stuff, does USB audio work (USB headphone adapters like the one for the pixel)
Also this might not work on 15.x but you could see what happens [link]
If it is a software issue. This can be solved using Soudabout app from playstore.
I recently found an app called SoundAbout which supposedly can route audio to another output. I have not tested it myself but I bookmarked it in case I would need it. Hopefully it can work for your husband if removing the jack is not possible.
I've had this problem in the past with other phones. Basically your phone is detecting your regular headphones as a set with inline controls and detecting phantom button presses. Last time I dealt with this I used this app to disable the inline controls.
Can I ask what phone it is you have? I have a 2 month old RN4 and it did exactly that, all day yesterday.
I looked into workarounds (an app called 'soundabout' can force it to output through the Jack even when the device is not recognising it) and even into ordering a new Jack to replace it myself.
Then all of a sudden I tried some earphones at night and all is well again. I suspect mine is hardware related though and expect it to return at some point.
I messed around with cotton wool Q-tips in the Jack in the morning. Maybe try that.
If you think it's software related, cant you just backup using twrp, wipe, then go back to the previous build and test it? If that doesn't fix it then it sounds like hardware issue to me. You can then just go back to your backup.
Most smartphones has TRRS headphone jacks (4 conductors, Tip Ring Ring Sleeve), which means two channel output (left and right) and one channel mic level input (mono).
Since tapping into the mic connection of the phone itself likely also gives you mono sound, I would go for the much easier route of making a simple adapter from a headset cable.
Software-wise I don’t have any experience, but google gave me this, which seems capable of routing sound between most interfaces on an Android phone. I didn’t look too close, but check it out!
Edit: If the phone has stereo mics, and you feel confident enough with a soldering iron, I can’t see why not. I’m not sure if you’d need an amp to get mic level or if you can do it in software though.
For problem one, I think you could use this app with tasker. Let me know if it works, there are probably multiple ways to achieve your object.
Yeah thats just the way Android handles notifications, its in case you take them out for a moment, it stops you missing notifications.
[link] Try this app for a workaround without root
Try using the app soundabout. It will let you select between Bluetooth, external speaker and such. It might fix your issue.
Damn. Found this in another relevant thread. Maybe you can force the change and then take it up from there.
Ah, I misunderstood. I see now. Have you tried the SoundAbout app in the play store?
Here is the link:
I found it from this thread
This was a common bug in old stock of RN3 which was eventually fixed by the MIUI update. Here are few ways to troubleshoot.
. When you do the call test under CIT mode (##6484##), your Main MIC should not work but the sub mic (near headphone jack) should work. If that's the case, its a bug with MIUI software.
.Disable Google Voice.
Step 1: Go to Google settings (Not phone setting)
Step 2: Tap on Search & Now
Step 3: Tap on voice . After that tap on “Ok Google” detection
Step 4: off the “Ok Google” detection .
Reboot and test.
This app should help, let me know if it solves your issue.
hmm, maybe some app like this?
>Route the media audio to (Built-In speaker, Wired Headphones, Wired Headset (with mic), Earpiece, Aux Digital(HDMI), Bluetooth(A2DP), Bluetooth(mono), Bluetooth(mono)(dynamic), Dock(Analog), Dock(Digital)).
I wanted sound going out through my AUX port and Google Maps navigation going out through bluetooth. However I was unable to find a way to make it work on my android phone, so I ended up getting a second device (ipod touch) and running two separate audio systems in my car.
If you're on android you could see if this app will work, maybe you will have better luck since you're doing dual bluetooth.
In general Bluetooth is a bit difficult - and results will vary by device/android version.
I can't think of any. Our app which also has a call recorder feature cannot do Bluetooth recording. In fact the audio recorder feature barely works with Bluetooth headsets on some devices.
There are apps for redirecting audio output, but they can work or not work - i.e. not terribly reliable.
it's just how android is configured. The reasoning is that if you accidentally left your headphones plugged in after putting your phone down/away, you wouldn't hear any notifications. I use this app to get around the problem, works great:
There is an unlock key for full functionality ($3, worth it in my opinion, bought it a couple years ago), but use the trial to see if it does what you like first.
not sure about fix, but in terms of app I use
source: my nexus headphone socket is frazzled and sometimes thinks it has headphones inside it when it doesn't, and vice-versa thinks it does not when it actually has. the audio routing though is pure software, so this app forces the routing to the headphones or speakers manually
If you don't want to shell out for some bluetooth headphones or bluetooth earbuds, download SoundAbout! It forces audio to the headphone jack. If audio does still come through the headphones with the use of this app, you'll know that the phone has just stopped sensing the jack.
For me, I just treat my phone like it's missing the headphone jack. I shouldn't have to do that, but it's the compromise I've made!
It didn't fix it, I did find out why it was happening though. It seems the phone only accepts earphones with a microphone, if yours don't have it, then it'll stop working and it'll use the speakers.
A few solutions I found:
Installing SoundAbout and setting the media audio to Wired Headphones. It completely fixed it. NOTE: You have to open the app every time you restart your phone, it's fine to close it afterwards though, the problem won't come back until you turn the phone off or restart it.
Temporary fix is to only plug half the earphones pin inside the jack, wait ~5 seconds, and then plug the rest in. If the headphone icon stays on the screen it means it worked. It's quite annoying though.
Install a new ROM such as CM13 or CM14. NOTE: I haven't tested this myself, but I read that it fixed the problem to some people.
I find that the first solution is good enough for me, if you don't like it, flashing a new ROM is probably the best option.
1) Yes clean it as the other folks said. I like to take a Q-Tip and rip about 80% of the fuzz off - then isopropyl and clean out the jack.
2) You should be able to disable headset mode via [link]
I have no idea why but when I use good lock, notifications will go through my headphones when they're plugged in. Once I go back to the stock system ui, notifications come out of speakers.
Oh and there's also this app that lets you do something similar.
If it is your headphone jack causing the problem, you could also try this: [link]
It has a feature to ignore headset detection, which should solve your problem.
I did a quick Google and came on this, which includes a guy that has your problem. [link]
He recommends this app called SoundAbout. Give it a try? [link]
Common issue on the G3. The tolerances are very tight on the headphone connector, so it's extremely easy to short the control pin (the one that triggers the voice search and such). Some 3.5mm plugs have major issues and some work perfectly fine.
The first thing to do is make absolutely sure the headphone jack is clean. Just a small amount of lint in the bottom of the jack can push the connector out of alignment just enough that it shorts (activates) the control pin. I like to use those thin plastic toothpicks that usually have the floss at the other end, and bend just the tip into a little hook to pull out the lint ball that inevitably forms in the bottom of the jack.
If that doesn't help, there is an app called Soundabout that will allow you to turn off the function that listens for the control pin being activated. The basic app is free, but I can't remember if you need to buy the full version of not to do this (I've been on CyanogenMod on my G3 for over a year). Luckily, the app has a trial period so you can verify it works before buying if needed. Anyway, in the app, go to Connectable Devices/Wired Headset Settings and uncheck the box for Wired Headset Microphone. This will disable the microphone on any headset you connect, but it will also disable the feature that detects when you are pressing the button on the headset.
Perfect. Get a Schiit Modi 2, run it through a powered USB hub to your S6. Use an RCA to 3.5mm cable from the Modi to the E12A, of course. Should be able to get all that for $150.
I would try it out on your S6 using PowerAmp at first, Lollipop introduced systemwide USB DAC support, but it is possible that you will need to play audio through USB Audio Player Pro if the S6 doesn't handle it for you. Or there might be other solutions like this: [link]
I had the same issue with headphones once. I installed SoundAbout [link] and that was all it took. For some reason the after installing the app my phone started detecting my headphones again. YMMV but it's worth giving it a shot.
Sorry I can't offer any help with the other issues.
if you hear noises from some ones phone. check to see if they have headphones in.
I didnt know for a while when i first switched to android that putting headphones in did not mean all sounds went to my head phones. was a few weeks of playing games on the train before i knew i was blasting games sounds on the train (with headphones in listening to music)
App : soundabout fixed that
The main thing to be aware of is that there is a good deal of variation across the brand. You can get any two random versions, install exactly the same apps ave get different screen on times, and temperatures. One thing that helps is if it comes with kit Kat, do a factory reset after upgrading.
Now, you mention wanting to go with CM 12. It's fairly stable for most people, but there are reports of it giving minor issues, so you may want to consider a stock based rom instead.
Also, CM and other non stock roms tend to ruin the picture quality compared to stock. There is a replacement version called xcam that is excellent though.
The issue with the aux port has already been mentioned, and there is a fix you can do. If you get a four post cord, it tricks it into thinking there's a Mic on the line and no more problems. Also there's an app reported to help with it [link]
haven't tried it myself since my phone didn't have the problem.
All in all, it's a great device. Quality control seems spotty with the g3, but they're decent about honoring the warranty.
This sounds like something SoundAbout is meant to address. I've never used that app, only seen it mentioned here and there, but it would be my first stop if I wanted to pull off something like what you're trying.
Edit: Welp, checking out SoundAbout's user forums yielded this useful information:
>Android does not allow simultaneous audio output in the audio profile manager.
You could try SoundAbout. It routes the audio how you like it - speaker, Bluetooth, headphones, etc.
Hey, this happened with my OnePlus a couple of weeks ago. I also tried a few methods suggested here. ( [link] ) however the fix that worked was removing the back cover and screws. Once the back is opened there is a slot that allows you to push it.
Until you fix it, I used this app to override the media settings and ignore headphone jack. That way I didn't have use speaker phone/bluetooth. [link]
Maybe try this, you'll need something to pop in the jack to fool it, but this app will then allow you to route the audio.
I don't know much about the cause of the problem, but it may be static.
You've tried everything short of SoundAbout. I had the same problem; the phone loves detecting a headset with mic instead of normal headphones. SoundAbout lets you force the audio output to "ignore" the mic (and corresponding "button presses") so wiggling your cable will no longer skip/pause/voice command in the middle of tracks. Let me know if it helps!
Hey dude if you've not sorted it already I had the same issue with the G5+, SoundAbout fixed it. I was pretty much about to buy a new phone before I found this, thankfully someone on an old Reddit thread suggested it.
I have this with my Z5 Premium, it is apparently a common sensor issue and can't be fixed unless replaced.
Try this, though: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.woodslink.android.wiredheadphoneroutingfix
Thanks that's what I wanted to know. I was thinking that if the soundabout app is used it would work in worst case. [link]
it's the headphones port bug. hopefully for you it's just software, otherwise the sensor in your headphone port is broken.
until you fix it, there are apps that allow you to control the output maually.
Weird. If it's the phone, it will likely be the software controller on the audio jack.
Try installing Soundabout to override stock audio mixing...this has been a fix for other HTC 10 users with similar problems.
Using it from last 8-9 months. Soundabout has many options. There are other apps. But they have ads and they don't have enough options. Soundabout also has widget support.
Just had a quick search and soundabout appears to work, just tried it myself, it looks like a paid app but there is a trial to see if it works for you.
It seems that your comment contains 1 or more links that are hard to tap for mobile users.
I will extend those so they're easier for our sausage fingers to click!
Here is link number 1 - Previous text "app"
^Please ^PM ^/u/eganwall ^with ^issues ^or ^feedback! ^| ^Delete
I have this problem with my Redmi Note 3 too, the service center mentioned that I have to change the motherboard (which would take a week or two, screw that). Soundabout is a great app which works as a workaround for now. I'm not satisfied with the build quality of Xiaomi now a days tbh.
There is an application called SoundAbout that works for wired connections.
If you download the app and select wired headphones (routed through phones mic) it will do what you ask if you can use a wired connection.
Otherwise i'm pretty sure you can't do it with bluetooth on Android (audiopolicy or something like that).
This is normal behavior in Android and unfortunately, there are no system settings to change this. I think that SoundAbout has the ability to route notification audio the way that you want, but I've never tried it myself.
You can use SoundAbout: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.woodslink.android.wiredheadphoneroutingfix I used it when my LG G2 started exhibiting the same behavior.
I have similar issues with my wife's Nexus 6P after she dropped the top bezel in water.
I haven't attempted to fix it because insurance covered it. However, I was able to apply an intermediate software fix using SoundAbout ([link]).
Something physical in the phone was flagging the phone as being in "headset" mode. If you can determine the same, then that may help you. SoundAbout let's you force the headphone detection to a particular mode.
I would recommend SoundAbout:
It can force all audio to go only to the headphone jack or wireless headset, even when nothing is connected.
Do earphones work if you plug them? There is an app that foces audio through the speakers or through the 3.5mm jack, you can also use that. I think it is this one
Don't want to discredit here but....
[link] had the option to route the media output to the ear-speaker (and more) for years...
Regarding this app here:the combination is clever...but what i tried (inspired by your app) but failed (which would be great if it would work) is to play a song with the ear-speaker and to play the same song with very low volume through the normal speaker as well, simultaneously, synchronised...to have a stereo effect.
Anyone knows, if this is even possible ?
I'm pretty sure this app will allow it (I've messed with it before), but like the other person said, it will sound like total crap, you don't want to do that for music. [link]
I had a similar problem where my phone may wouldn't detect headphones. This app fixed it for me :
I believe there's an option in there to disable detecting headphones as headsets. Look for a checkbox labeled "Wired Headset microphone". No idea if it will work, just looks like it might.
Download Sound About, turn on "Wired Headset detection" and turn off "Wired Headset microphone".
This will ignore any microphone from a headset and use the built-in microphone on your phone instead.
What you turned on initially was enabling Voice Assistant activation from long-pressing the button on the headset even when the device is locked; if your last comment was correct, this has nothing to do with your issue.
I have the same problem, my ATH-M50x's and the huawei earbuds works fine, but when I tried some other earbuds, my phone did not detect any headphones. I downloaded this app:
The app also has a widget which you can toggle between internal speaker or mini-jack output for audio when you touch it.
Is the aux cable three small black cables or two? If three the phone might be looking for an extra mic in line when there is none.
The app SoundAbout might help
I'm not sure what's the issue, but android has the ability to reroute audio even if it has a headphone plugged in (that's how the miKey works if I'm correct). See if an app like this would be a temp solution: [link]
Out of the monitor? No. You could perhaps use this app or one like it (I've never used it but the reviews seem to indicate it works) to get video out over HDMI while outputting from the speakers/headphone out of the tablet.
I don't know if this would actually work but see if this app can do it:
I keep an old iPod touch in my car for the reason you mentioned.
You can try some app like this (may or may not be effective) ..
If you are using a headset (and it's built-in microphone) - and wanting to route audio to an external bluetooth speaker, you can experiment with:
by RareEarth Software
There ya go
Overall I prefer it much better this way. So many of us either keep our phones constantly paired to Bluetooth headset or have a wired headset constantly plugged in. It's always caused issues in the past where you wouldn't hear calls or notifications for hours until you noticed or worse slept through your alarm. I've fallen asleep with headphones on a few times and of course they'll fall out at some point. The way it's set up saves my ass pretty often from waking up late
Of the two ways I think this way is a lot less janky. How hard is it to glance at your AOD every 5 minutes.
i use SoundAbout [link]
This app can change stream ot speakerphone and headphone.
Unfortunally doesn't have tasker integration and dev doesn't reply me at this question.
So if you find out to get a good integration with tasker, please share with me.
Otherwise, you need to set manually :(
Try using soundabout, if there are any problems in your configuration it will try force the sound from the N7 to your head unit.
I think the free version will work for what you want, but I think there is a is a free trail for the premium version you can try anyway
Yes, I have had the same issue. It appears to be a glitch in how audio gets routed between Bluetooth, headphone jack and speaker.
I found SoundAbout that allows you to set the audio output you want.
Give SoundAbout a try. Should be able to set you phone to detect your headphones as headphones and ignore controls. Other options too.
Give this a try - it gives you control over your sound output. Maybe if you chose headphones without mic it would work for you or there could be other settings.
I had the same problem with my old phone a while ago. Grab a copy of SoundAbout, the free version should do exactly what you want.
Download the app soundabout. [link]
If the jack works whenever you force it using that app then just wait for it to dry longer.
That's interesting. Does this happen with all services? And are you able to receive metadata at any time?
I know that there are various ways to transmit Bluetooth audio, so it might be possible that the phone is incorrectly assuming that your head unit isn't capable of somehow receiving the metadata. There's an app called SoundAbout that lets you reroute audio streams. Try setting media audio to Bluetooth (A2DP) and see if that helps.
That is a problem and I'm sure the G3 isn't the only one but I've heard the G3s port is particularly problematic. I also get static and it cuts out sometimes with my headphones plugged in.
You may be able to fix your issue with this app. Set you audio as wired headphones and it should ignore the mic and action button [link]
So, for anyone interested, I found a solution!(ish)
Allows you to set up audio to play through different devices depending on the source and how it's connected.
After some tinkering and actually being let down initially as the app didn't let me do what I'd hoped.. I found that by adding the "Bluetooth Mic Toggle" widget to my homescreen that it allowed me to switch between BT audio and the phone's speaker. :)
Works pretty well, I opted for the pro version, but wired headset option is available in the basic version.
Try this app:
Force all audio through headphone jack. This helped once with an older phone that just wasn't detecting something plugged inti it.
My G2 has the same problem due to light water damage - my alarm went off when I was in the shower and I turned it off with a dripping wet hand. Just after that is when I saw the headset icon. The icon is there because the phone thinks that headphones are plugged in. I'm guessing if you try playing audio on your phone you don't hear anything from the speakers?
I'm using SoundAbout to work around it because I don't want to go through the hassle of sending my device in for repair. It can disable the headphone detection and allow you to manually specify the audio output. It runs as a service that auto switches the output when Bluetooth headphones are plugged in too.
If you plug in wired headphones you'd have to manually change the output in the app, but I tend to just stick with Bluetooth anyway. It's a hassle to have to manually switch, but it works for me.
A few possibilities:
I had a similar audio problem with my Ace a couple years back. Soundabout helped. Think I used pro version. Not sure if I had static tho.
No clue, but just chiming in to say I use SoundAbout for managing my audio and it works fine without being killed.
On the other hand, my data firewall NoRoot Data Firewall keeps getting killed all the time, and it is frustrating because it either just opens up my data connection to everything, or leaves my data completely blocked until I restart it.
Any solutions to your issue would definitely help me as well.
Quick update: Using the app SoundAbout and forcing the phone to use a wired headset with mic (even though it doesn't detect one as being connected) it works just fine. Some recording apps seem to get confused and refuse to detect any input, but the one I'm interested in works just fine with the SoundAbout tweak.
Not really sure what conclusions to draw here. A bug perhaps? Phone refusing to accept an audio input device unless it also detects audio out?
I feel ya. I've found this app for when I need to use it. Haven't installed it yet though, so no idea how well it works.
Install this app and check "ignore microphone" in headset options. I guarantee it will fix all your problems. I was having the same issues as you and it cleared them all up immediately.
I've answered point 1 in another comment, check SoundAbout out for point 2. It's a bit more than you wanted but covers that.
In addition, for those who were mistaken in what you were after, using LocalCast there is a beta function to use your phone as the audio device whilst casting local files, video only, to a TV.
I got some water damage to my phone and it started doing the same thing. I got a tip about Soundabout [link]
and was able to use it to force the sound to the headphones. The problem was that the phone didn´t realise any more that headphones were attached.
Yes, SoundAbout lets you route audio. Edit: maybe not on a per app basis, but sound type eg notification, media, phone calls
This app might help
What is your music streaming app? Spotify? If your music streaming app does not have a setting for Audio Focus ducking, you could explore this thread, obviously replacing Pokémon for your streaming app.
Else for less Taskerery, back in the day for my Pressy, I used to use an app called SoundAbout which might be worth checking out.
Some others to explore would be Audio Router and SoundAssistant
SoundAbout is probably what you want.
It's possible with sound about.
I'm not sure, but SoundAbout might help.
Or one of these:
(I searched for "Bluetooth router" and for "Bluetooth HFP").
Have you tried this might help.
SoundAbout Play Store Link
You can use the SoundAbout app to do that.
Just did a quick google, sounds like [link]
dunno. test it / them....
This may work,
Did you try soundabout??
(Choose earphone or earphone+mic option for media output)
Have you tried something like this? Audio Router
[link] This fixes the headphone issue. I had it on the G3 and was surprised that I still needed it for the G5.
Apparently this app can do it
Had the same problem with my HTC M8 and this app sorted it; [link]
I had the same problem on stock. I used soundabout to fix it. [link]
try this app, as I have the same issue and it helped me get around the problem.
I use this app.
I believe you can control this using SoundAbout:
This is a known issue with some aux connections. Try using [link]
I believe I solved this same problem years ago using this [link]
Check out the app SoundAbout You can specify where different types of audio play.
Honestly, I just assumed it was possible from the shell, but I'm having a hard time finding documentation for doing so. I can find it for other linux systems.
I'm going to do some googling, but here's a potential non-tasker solution, that I just came across which you might be interested in.
though the comments say it's pretty shit.
Here's a potentially helpful xda thread, for switching bluetooth output. [link]
Edit: autoinput might be a good idea for you, if you can do it in the device UI manually already
Double edit: Here's a good discussion of this subject. [link]
I'm just going to keep track as I research more. I'll add another note to this when truly done.
Other people here discuss pulseaudio, but I guess google replaced pulse with something called audioflinger. TL;dr here
This app lets you do what you want on a schedule: [link]

it has option to ignore headphone plug in/out
Try [link] and cut (but keep >30cm) cabled headphone -or take your good one as antenna
Maybe this can fix your problem.
Haven't tried it personally but take a look at SoundAbout
Use Sound About.
SoundAbout - by RareEarth Software
BTmono by bedoig
Mono Bluetooth Router by MaxiStar
try this app SoundAbout it forces the sound though your wanted place [link]
try using soundabout?
Did you try manually managing audio output source using Sound about??
I haven't tried for myself, but I've heard SoundAbout is supposed to do this.
You could try this app, not sure if it will work though.
Check this app out.
App for manually controlling audio output
Looks like the G4 had a virtual "headphone splitter":
May want to try a couple apps that may be able to force simultaneous 3.5 mm headphone and Bluetooth
Maybe check this out:
Just use my suggestion. I'll try to look for the app.
Try using this app to always set audio to headphone output:
This app is called SoundAbout and should do exactly what you are looking for.
Use bluetooth stuff or try this.
maybe in the vicinity of "soundabout" [link]
Anyone tried this? I get the same problem on my sony, but not my S3. I will try these when I get a chance:
Also found this info on XDA:
>There is currently no solution for the problem. For some, buying a ground-loop isolator has become a temporary fix. Plugging the aux cable in after the phone has started playing audio is another one that has worked for some people, but the moment audio output stops, the connection drops again.
>Put the headphones in slowly until you hear 2 faint beeps. Once you hear those just continue plugging in the headphones."
>An audio splitter with AUX on 1 IN and an in-ear headphones on 2 IN can solve the AUX cable issue....
>All you need to do is play the song (I use player pro) and then plug the Aux cable in
Have you tried any apps?
Idea - may not work a all:
BT profile change to media only
[link] and/or [link] (the latter is rather the opposite of what you need)
please post if you find a combination...
Soundabout worked for me on Jellybean, no idea if it will work with the G4/lollipop or not.
The other, always there answer is Tasker which is what I'm using to control volume right now.
SoundAbout can do what you are looking for. I've had android phones for years and only found this app weeks ago.
These apps may inspire you :-)
This is exactly what I'm looking for, but there is no iOS version. Anything like this for Apple and I'm golden.
Try Soundabout app
Do you have the app SoundAbout? It seems like this is the app causing this issue lately for most people. So uninstalling that, if you have it, should fix the problem.
