Support for change track on long press of volume keys using official API

Recommended Posts

The Skip Track application as found here uses an official Android API to listen to long press of volume keys and change tracks accordingly. This method works with other external players apart from Poweramp. When using Poweramp, a track change sound plays out on long press indicating detection of the long press but the track itself doesn't change.

Request you to support this method since it uses the official API to listen to long press of volume keys, as introduced with Oreo.

The API is UNofficial, but it's possible. Still can be activated only via adb console command, so it's for very power users only.

As for the app, it doesn't properly check if music is playing so it just skips Poweramp when it's playing on Hi-Res or/and DVC.
