    First of all sorry if i posted with wrong tag as AutoTools tag isn't available.

    So i tried to do some task when media playing iss detected, but the media state context doesn't work properly. It only detects music playing from google play music and nothing else that i tried.

    Funny thing is when i try to detect media playing with the AutoTools task system state it qorks flawlessly. Plz guide what to do.

    Doesn't work with all the apps, the thing i am looking for is media playing context which includes both music apps and video apps too. Unfortunately AutoNotification can't work with video apps.

    The system state task in AutoTools plug in detects media fine, its just that the context doesn't. May be they use different methods for media detection but i will prefer the 1st one.

    Oh I see, thanks! Yeah, that uses a different method, which does not make available all the metadata associated with what's playing, sorry!

    I would really lime it to have as a state, i have a profile which turns off notification sounds when music is playing so that i can entetain uninterrupted music(android dims music sound when notification arrives) and turns back on notification sound when i stopped playing music.

    Unfortunately it's not possible to use that as a state, sorry!

    But the automation app "Automate" does the samething, it detects change in media state(playing to paused or paused to playing) and executes the task accordingly.

    Maybe it uses media notifications to do that?

    Sorry but AutoNotification doesn't work for all my media apps, while Automate does.
