Hi,

Is there an app/other method I can use to make audio play in the phone's earpiece speaker? For things like playing music files, not just for routing a VOIP call for a specific app.

I have a rooted Nexus 5 running 4.4.4 KitKat.

Thanks

There is an app called earpiece that does exactly what you all for in the play store. Works flawlessly.

Thanks for the fast reply

I tried the Earpiece app and it works but i noticed there's no way to adjust the volume of the earpiece speaker. I tried adjusting the normal volume as well as the ringer volume. Does anyone know a way to adjust the volume using this app?

Edit: The volume changing works. I tested the apps functionality in the youtube app at the time of the post. I restarted and tried it with the stock music player and it worked great.

Hmm, it seems you are right. I last remember it working perfectly but it seems that now volume control doesn't work for me either. My apologies, this is the only solution I have. Hopefully someone else will be able to offer some advice.

EDIT: Spelling
