I have a pair of handsfree headphones from my old galaxy s2 and I am wondering if there is any way I can make the button work for answering calls or skip tracks. The microphone works on calls, but I need to answer manually. Any help is good. Thanks!

Angry No extra apk needed for me
I have tested with a headphone from my LG gw620 and works fine (I am on stock unrooted jellybean Moto G).

I can answer calls by pressing button on earphone's mic. During a call if I press it silences my mic and if i press it reactivates mic. (I can't end call, so)

In stand by mode a short press triggers my last multimedia apk used (radio, music, etc..) and while playing them if i press button I get pause.

Long press always ends in same end: google Voice search.
