    I'm using AutoVoice, installed on my OnePlus 3, only as a Google Home service with Tasker ("Hey Google, ask AutoVoice to ..." initiates event ... in Tasker), but since installing it, it takes over my wired headset play/pause button longpress, but only when my phone is locked. (By "taking over", I mean that nothing happens - it doesn't launch a voice search of its own or even pause the music playing or anything, it just acts like I hadn't pressed the button at all.)

    This is super annoying, as I bike everywhere and I often use Google Assistant to play songs or navigate places. Just longpressing the pause button right next to my head and speaking a ommand is so much easier than having to stop, take out the phone, unlock it and then longpressing the button and giving my command.

    Someone else must have this same issue, so how did you fix it?

    Hi there. Are you able to fix it by maybe selecting a different app to handle the command? Maybe try clearing defaults in AutoVoice? Thanks
