Default Can we simulate a bluetooth button press?

Google Now can send and receive audio through our Gear. AutoVoice for Tasker can receive voice commands from our Gear as well! This opens up many possibilities! Both programs can be activated with the standard bluetooth button on your everyday headset.. is it possible to simulate this button on our gear? I am thinking our media control program works by simulating hard headset button presses. A program would be fine, but a widget would be ideal! TIA!

Another question. Is a bluetooth headset limited to these 6 button functions? Play/pause, skip, back, volume +/-, and the standard button mentioned above? If not, we can take Tasker automation from gear even further!

I've looked into some apps on play store, but nothing seems to work. Can't find any other examples where a headset is actually running android in order to utilise button in this way

This is all I need for a perfect gear !

I have searched ALL day to figure this out, although no luck sadly.

Best way of doing this would have to be using a plugin for tasker, just like atooma uses.


EDIT: We need to figure out how exactly the gear communicates with the phone, if we can manually send a request from the gear to the phone. We could setup a intent listener on tasker and it could execute tasks.

Maybe someone should speak with the dev's of gear getter ? Or ATN ? Figure out how they communicate with the gear ?



HELPFUL POST? HIT THANKS !

OR BETTER YET

BUY ME A BEER OR TWO ?

Default Got Google Voice to work from Gear

With Google search 3.1 all you have to do is say "Okay Google". This works for me.
To Launch Google Search from Gear
1) Set Up to recieve Google Notification
2) Open a Google Notification
3) Press Show On Device. This will launch Google Voice Search
4) Say "Okay Google".

Make sure you have "Record Audio through Bluetooth headset if available" checked in Google Voice. Only issue is that if Phone locks. Maybe someone can find a way to get a shortcut for "Show On Device".

This may be our best option right now.. Thanks for voicing this! I hope to see a Tasker plugin soon.. Thanks everyone for the feedback!

I'm reviving this thread because I've been searching for this exact thing, and I can't believe it's so difficult - has anyone found a solution? I can't find vingar's "null rom" thread he refers to above as a solution. Any info is very welcome.

I too find it difficult to swallow that a solution has not been found. I am a little late to the "gear party" (only having mine for a few weeks now) and have been searching for a solution to this.

I believe Vingar's solutions is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2#post47519892

I have found a few apps that may help with this but none that directly address what I am looking for....namely a widget on the home screen of my gear that simply sends the correct keycode to my phone via BT.
