Toggle one handed mode with tasker

55 min 38 sec ago

I have an app by XDA called One-Handed Mode, which lowers the top of the screen to make it more reachable. The only thing preventing me from using it is the fact that many apps don't work very well with it. Is there a way for me to toggle this on/off using Tasker? I want it to turn off when I enter a certain app, and turn on when I leave that app. Is this possible?

Long Press of headphone button when phone is asleep?

2 hours 38 min ago

Hi all,

I am trying to figure out if I can use the long press of my wired headphone button as a trigger when the phone is asleep.

When the phone is awake, a long press of that button brings up Google Assistant. When the phone is asleep, a long press does nothing. If music is playing, a quick press of the button toggles the pause of the music when the phone is both asleep and awake.

Is this possible?

Changing the behavior of the power button

3 hours 29 min ago

I bought tasker recently and I tested simple tasks like turning on wifi at a certain time or changing the display timeout for certain apps. So far it's pretty neat.

My power button is a bit buggy lately and sometimes pressing it once will trigger two presses, so the screen will turn on/off again... I was wondering if it's possible to change the behavior of the button so that the phone ignores a second press if the first press was done X ms ago. I think this is probably possible with root tools, but I'd rather not root because for now I don't really need it for other stuff, and this isn't a huge problem anyways. Has anyone tried something similar using tasker (or something similar)?

"Allow Phone Access" in WebView will not stay checked

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 22:07


Whenever I check "Allow Phone Access" and then back out of the screen, it un-checks itself. I have a stock T-Mobile Galaxy Note 9 on Android 8.1. Any ideas?

[HOW-TO] Automatically share WiFi password with your guests

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 13:47

Ever had someone over and had to tell them your WiFi password while they slowly typed it in? Or you had to take their devices and type it in yourself?

No more!

Now simply send them the password automatically if they text you WiFi while you're connected to the network! :)

Check out a video demo here.

Check out the full tutorial here.

You can also directly import from here if you're on the Tasker beta.

Hope this helps someone out!

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 11:00

Is it still the case that Autoinput can't interact with a webpage even if I have root?

I basically want to click a button if it pops up and refresh at a certain time interval on Chrome

Thanks for any help

[Help][AutoHue] Set scene without changing brightness

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 09:49

I have a profile that changes the scene when I open a certain app and reverts back to the last state after the app is closed. I'd like to have the brightness of the previous state carry over to the new scene.

I have one task have HueState save the variables Globally in an an Array Set for each bulb. That task is run in another task that then changes the scene. I can't figure out how to configure the scene to accept a change in brightness level.

Is there a way to keep the scenes brightness constant from the previous state? I could just have Hue 2.0 change bulb colors in series without defining brightness, but there's a noticeable delay between bulbs even with transition time set to 0 seconds.

Turning USB tethering on when USB connected

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 02:04

Hey everyone, new user of Tasker here. I love it so much and I'd just like some help configuring this particular task. My laptop's wireless adapter is broken, so I've been manually turning on USB tethering to connect to the internet through my phone. I've done some research and I've only found posts from a few years ago and/or solutions with apps that aren't Tasker. I've also tried these solutions and they haven't worked.

Does anyone know if it's possible to set a task to automatically turn USB tethering on when connected to my laptop? I know it'll only save me about three seconds, but it's so annoying to constantly turn back on every time. I'd like to automate it!

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Android 8.0.0

Any profiles with python?

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 16:19

Hi, I am good with python and I have intermediate knowledge in Tasker. I was wondering if are there any good profiles combining Tasker and python for practical needs. There are few websites which tell about running python scripts on Tasker, but I couldn't find any with practically useful profile (with my initial search)

I am looking forward to learn more with profiles

Can't use "Get Voice" task while phone is ringing

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 11:53

Hey all,

I have created will automatically answer the phone when it rings if I am wearing headphones. However, first, I want Tasker to tell me who is calling and ask me if I want to take the call. I have everything up to the point where i use the "get voice" task (to capture my answer), and it won't capture my voice. This task works in my other projects, so I am assuming it has something to do with the incoming phone call.

Any suggestions?

[Help] AutoNotification tiles have taken over, can't drag anything to quick setting tiles

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 11:32

After installing AutoNotification, I now have 40 possible tiles I can customize and add. That's good.

What's bad is I can't drag anything that's under the AN tiles to add it to the Quick Start menu. It'll drag up halfway, then disappear. Is there a way to hide these extra AN tiles, so that I maybe only have 10 in the list? Or another way to edit the Quick Start menu?

[PROJECT] Apps Cache Cleaner

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 10:15


As you may know, many apps generate temporary files to allow some processes, or the app itself to run faster, later. These files require a considerable memory space, especially if we have a limited memory, and several installed apps. Therefore, this project allows you to get rid of those files, which really are not necessary for the normal operation of an app.

Main features:

· Live notification (know the current process on each state)

· Select what apps to clean (user or user + system)


- Root is required, but only if we want to clean cache from '/data/data' directory.

- To launch it, use the 'ACC - Launch' task, but having previously configured the action that it includes.

- When cleaning '/data/data/*', it will take longer, as it needs to access to the root directory and execute appropriate cmds as root.

- If you don't want to clean files from External SDCard, just leave the '%par2' field of A2 from 'ACC - Launch' task, unset.

[Help] Grabbing bluetooth battery?

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 07:55

Hey guys, newer versions of Android show how much battery percentage is remaining on your connected bluetooth devices. I'm wondering if anyone knows if that info is available via a variable of some kind or another method of getting it that wouldn't involve autoinput having to open the screen and grabbing it?
