Use camera button to control media

Hello everyone,

I often take my FP2 with me when I’m running to listen to music. When a song comes up, that I don’t like, I have to take the phone out, unlock it and skip the song via the touchscreen.

If I could use a hardware button to skip, I could leave the phone in my pocket, which would be very convenient.

The camera button seems perfect for this!. Is there a way (maybe with an app) to assign a custom functionality, like media control, to the camera button?

Thanks in advance!

Don’t know if there’s an app that can assign this function to the camera button, but maybe there’s a MP3 player app with an option to use the volume button for this (e.g. long press to skip)?
I found an option to do this in the settings of my old SGS running CM11 (Android 4.4.4), but I couldn’t find it in the FP2 (Android 5.1) settings.


Hi there,
When I listen to music on my headphones, I can remote control this. On the headphones I have a single button, push once for play /stop, push twice for next song. Our when someone calls answer the phone with a push. Maybe this might be an easier answer.

This sounds cool. Which headphone is it? Does it work well with FP2?

It was the old headphone of an HTC one, and works very well with FP2. I
thank you can just buy such headphones with remote control in them.
Good luck, Wouter

Ps: I am also interested in activating the camera button. It now hardly
does anything with me.
