Default Headset Button controls on Android?

Just wondering if there is some kind of software hack or mod that allows the volume buttons on headsets/earphones to work correctly. I know that with some players like Poweramp have the middle mic button working with single, double, and triple click. I know the volume buttons work on iOS devices so shouldn't there be a way to make it work with android?

There is an app ( may be many).
Something called headset button controller. Yeah it's
Here
Search on playstore. Or try tencent player to use volume rockers to switch between songs.

Can't really use anything besides Poweramp. For obvious reasons.
Anyway here's a pic. I'm talking about the volume buttons built into the headset. Not the middle button and not the volume rockers on the phone.

You Tried that app ? You can set up which button performs what action, blah blah.
And tactile player ( sorry I said something else before, it doesn't even exist) isn't a music player.
It's just an app used to skip tracks using volume rockers.

Poweramp has the functionality to skip tracks using the volume rockers on the phone already built in so no need for an app.

Hi

You will normally not get a pair of iPhone 3 button earphones work with an Android phone as the jacket technogies differ and so does its mic.
To make it work you need a.) appropriate earphones and b.) the software. A few makers has both

3-button earphones for Android
degausslabs.com/earphone/sabotageroyale

and free button controlling software here

Dont mention it. I use this app daily going to work and going home, it really works. Ive tried many headset apps and this is the best by far (and its 100% free).

Edit: added a screenshot. When connecting the headset I made my musicplayer start up automatically. Really neat as then I dont need to pull our the phone starting the music while on the go. Helps alot.

Cheers!
