      Poweramp v3 - Next Beta Release Planned for April 2018   03/14/2018

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss, but it is currently hoped that the next Beta Test release will be ready for April 2018.

What are Poweramp Intents for Tasker?

1 post in this topic

I have been searching high and low for an awnser I could understand for this question with no luck.


What are the intents I can use to make Tasker control Poweramp?


For all my searching around I know Poweramp has an API and can recieve commands from other apps but I'm to dumb to understand any of that code I've found on the API forum. Using Tasker's "Send Intent" task I have tried to use the following to get Tasker to control Poweramp:


  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.player.<action - either play, toggle_play_pause, stop, next, shuffle, repeat, etc>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.player.PowerampAPI.<action...>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.player.PowerampAPI.COMMAND.<action...>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.player.PowerampAPI.Commands.<action...>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.player.action.intent.PowerampAPI.<COMMAND and Commands>.<action>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.player.PowerampAPI.action.intent.<COMMAND and Commands>.<action>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.<action...>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.action.<action...>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.intent.<action...>
  • com.maxmpz.Poweramp.action.intent.<action...>
  • etc...

As an example I use PocketCast for my podcast listening and with Tasker's "Send Intent" task I have: "au.com.shiftyjelly.pocketcasts.action.PLAY" in the action field and when the task is run it will start play on PocketCast.


Like I said I'm kind of dumb when it comes to this kind of thing, any help would be great to get this cleared up! Thanks in advance!
