I'm wondering if the phone is getting "bad" headset plug signals really fast. If you expand the status bar, the Soundabout status notification says what audio output is being used. Does it keep switching from speaker to wired headset?

No, it says (after I check the right option in Sound About) "Phone speaker in use for media". If I check detection, it says "Wired headset" and doesn't change at all.

I just put uploaded another Beta for you to try:
http://soundabout.userboard.net/f8-download-beta-versions


Your phone has "headset detection" is off, but the phone is constantly getting a signal that the headset is plugged in (not on/off sporadically).

Android 5.0 took away what is called "stick broadcast", so I can't remove the ACTION_HEADSET_PLUG from the sticky broadcast intent.

Android documentation below.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

public static final String ACTION_HEADSET_PLUG

Broadcast Action: Wired Headset plugged in or unplugged. Same as ACTION_HEADSET_PLUG, to be consulted for value and documentation.

If the minimum SDK version of your application is LOLLIPOP, it is recommended to refer to the AudioManager constant in your receiver registration code instead.

Constant Value: "android.intent.action.HEADSET_PLUG"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

removeStickyBroadcast(Intent intent)

This method was deprecated in API level 21. Sticky broadcasts should not be used. They provide no security (anyone can access them), no protection (anyone can modify them), and many other problems. The recommended pattern is to use a non-sticky broadcast to report that something has changed, with another mechanism for apps to retrieve the current value whenever desired.

Alright, I tried the latest beta, neither speaker nor microphone can be switched.

So I'm a bit familiar with Android development... if that's the case, what mechanism is used in 2.5.8.1? Is it the AudioManager settings?

@Soundabout, any chance this will ever get fixed? Phone's microphone still not working in apps (but work during calls) in the latest beta 2.5.8.1.5. However, wired headset microphone works for both apps and calls.
There is no audio output problems, only microphone problems.

That's the only thing why I cannot switch to Lollipop. Btw, I can test new builds, I have Lollipop as a second ROM via Multirom.

Thank you for supporting! But it didn't work.

By the way, the problem on my phone (Nexus 5) is the same as the author of this topic has. Phone thinks that wired headset is always plugged in, so neither microphone nor speaker works. This application works perfectly for me on Kitkat.

Here's what I did for testing the latest version on Lollipop (5.0.2):
1) reinstall the application using this method
SoundAbout wrote:If you go into phone settings, manage apps, find SoundAbout, clear cache, clear data, and un-install, and then reboot the phone, does the microphone work with Google Voice Search?  
2) Launched the app, put its widget on desktop and changed it to "OFF" state. Speaker is working.
3) Calling. Speaker and microphone working. After the call, widget state changes to "DETECT", so I have to manually switch it back to "OFF" because it detects wired headphones. I didn't have that issue on Kitkat.
3.1) Trying to switch widget state during call. Get a big error on screen with something about "AudioUpdate". I could also do that on Kitkat.
4) Testing Google Search. Google can't hear me.
4.1) Testing SoundAbout Voice Search icon, the result is the same.

Tell me if you need any logs, or maybe screen recording of the testing.

Just curious,

Did you turn off the setting to detect wired headset?

The directions are here:

Just tried now, problem with Google Search remains unsolved. Don't see any difference between turning this setting off and manually switching the widget to OFF. However, this does solve the problem from step 3 of the post above.

Okay here's what I did:
1) Clear reinstall the app, reboot, launch app.
2) Trying Google search with the default settings - it doesn't work.
3) Unchecking the "detect headset" box, setting media audio to "let app decide"
4) Testing Google search - doesn't work again.
5) Calling. Everything works, I could even switch from speaker to headset while call, but only once. So, I switched the widget from OFF to ON, heard the sound through headset, switched back from ON to OFF, and after this point I couldn't switch again. No errors, it just doesn't switch.

What I also found is that in either state, ON or OFF, if I connect my wired headset (with a microphone), Google Search does hear me.

I was curious and tried 2.5.8.1.4 beta for the first time, and oh my god it worked! I unchecked the "detect headset" box, set media audio to "let app decide" and Google Search heard me! However, this version still has error about AudioUpdate during call which you tried to fix in 2.5.8.1.7. So I think if you combine the code from versions 1.4 and 1.7, it will be almost perfect.

Hi, i was having the same problem. Well, not exactly the same: after upgrade to Lollipop 5.0 [Nexus 4, CyanogenMod] the app don't "stopped open", just popped as if it were opening but closing then.

After a lot off clear cache, data, installing, reboot and etc. the 'popped' problem stopped. It was because the SoundAbout Pro (???).

After uninstall the key and doing another attempts with beta versions, the 2.5.8.1.4 version worked.
So, question: have any key that works with the beta versions?

Are you changing the "Media audio" setting to Bluetooth (mono) directly or are you using Bluetooth (mono) another way (through voice search, text to speech...etc)?

I am trying it now and it is working for me with a Bluetooth (mono) headset. I am listening to TuneIn radio with it.

I installed both product versions and Google Search did not work. However, that error of closing after installing the key did not occur anymore.

So I went back to the beta version 2.5.8.1.4 and I installed the product version of the key. Everything worked Very Happy

I see you have Nexus 4, CyanogenMod.

Did Google Search not work or did the audio not switch the way you wanted?

Audio switch is ok. As expected, the sound is output on headphones when 'on' or the speaker when 'off'.
When switched to 'off' nothing that uses the mic is working (tested with Google Voice, Skype and voice recorder).
To clarified, I have a problem that the cellphone sends a headset signal as always connected, then I unchecked both Wired Headset settings: Wired Headset microphone and Wired Headset detection.

Ok, so it is just getting the built-in mic to work when doing a voice search.

Does the built-in mic work for phone calls?
