Problem with Mono Microphone Override

Post by JonnieBlaze on Sat May 18, 2013 9:57 pm

Hi,

I had the version of SoundAbout thats in the Google Play store. Using that, I couldn't get the bluetooth microphone to be used when using phone functions like voice recorder, S Voice, and voice controlling the music player. And for some reason, even though I had the latest version, I didn't have a trial period so I couldn't try the "Mono Microphone Override".

So, I downloaded the latest beta version. Now I have the Pro Trial period. Using the defaults, everything worked as I explained above. Now I had access to the Mono Microphone Override and I tried that. As soon as I turned it on, the music player no longer routes through bluetooth, in fact it still plays but I get no audio from it anywhere. As soon as I uncheck the Mono Microphone Override the music player starts playing through bluetooth again.

All I need is phone audio and media audio to go through the bluetooth at all times, as well as the bluetooth mic being used for all phone functions.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 if that helps.

Any ideas?

Is your music going to a Bluetooth media device (A2DP)? If so, Android won't allow you to use a Bluetooth SCO phone device microphone while sending audio to a Bluetooth media (A2DP) device.

When you do this, it will most likely force the built-in microphone to be used. I can be listening to headphones while using the Bluetooth SCO microphone, but I cannot be listening with Bluetooth headphones.

This is forced in Android's audio policy manager code.

Hi I also have a Galaxy S3 but I do not have an option for microphone override in the bluetooth settings. This is my first time installing the free app.

I'm trying to catch up on all message board posts.

If you want to override only the microphone, there are widgets that allow turning on JUST the microphone for a wired headset, Bluetooth headset, or USB microphone. They are all separate widgets.

There is a thread on this here:
http://soundabout.userboard.net/t21-bluetooth-mono-microphone-while-audio-output-is-phone-speaker-wired-headset-or-some-other-audio-output

Also, There are some recent fixes in the latest Beta Version.

You can try it out by downloading it from here:

This widget/toggle does not work, when paired in HFP mode (mono bluetooth) to a receiver with no MIC pickup, the Phone's MIC never get's used regardless what state the widget toggle is in.

I'm pretty sure that I'm having this same issue sadly....
