Default App to auto shuffle music with touchless control

I made a tasker app to solve the music not starting using touchless control. At least it won't start for some of us.

I made it how I want it to work anyway. 

Install the app. It will be called "Shuffle".

Do your ok Google now or whatever you say to open touchless control.

Say "open shuffle"

The app will be opened. It opens Google music, starts playing music on shuffle mode. Then goes back to your home screen. Then I use Bluetooth to control it...like next track and whatever. Or you can drag down the status bar and control it that way.

Works great for me! Thought I'd share it with those interested.

Of course you don't need tasker, cause it's an app now. But you do need root and have to grant it root permission. Don't know why....tasker just makes it that way it seems.

Enjoy.

Hey,

I downloaded this and tried it out and it didn't work for me. It opens Google Play but it doesn't actually work from there. I live in Canada, could that be why?

EDIT: I got it to work once but it hasn't worked since.

I'm in Canada. Does Google music app see your songs? Its worked for me consistently.

When it doesn't work...what does it do...?

What does the actual Tasker task look like? Tried making something similar, but was only able to clumsily pull something off using emulated screen touches.

Yeah, that's what I did. One down, one right, one press. Then home key...to go back to main screen.

I have Google Play Music All Access in Canada so that might be the reason why it isn't working. Here's what happens when I open the application.

It opens Google Play Music, Opens the sidebar and that's basically it.

If you have tasker....you probably need to pay around with the up down right..etc. dpad moves.

All mine does is open Google music and click the shuffle all "button"....nothing opens, music starts and Google just goes away and you are back to your home screen.
