About this app

This simple application will automatically switch speaker status on\off during a phone call according to phone position.
It uses the proximity sensor to know if the phone is near your ear or not.

If you are using any type of headset, it will turn the speaker off, regardless of the proximity sensor and use the headset.

Whenever you are in a call, a new "control" button appears (default location is on the top left of the screen).
Pressing this button enables (Green icon) or disables (Red icon) the service for the current call.
Alternatively you can use notification on the status bar instead of the control button.
Please note that when disabling the service it will turn off the speaker.

Furthermore, the speaker button of the dialer may not indicate the current status of the speaker (on\off), nevertheless the status is changed.

Some devices may need to be calibrated for the app to work correctly.
See 'Calibration' option in settings if needed.

- Set default service status.
- Disable the service when phone is set to silent or vibrate (optional).
- On each call, you can change the service status for that specific call (It does not change your dialer).
Using it will turn the speaker on if service is enabled, and off if service is disabled.
- Set the speaker status when call starts.
- When changing to speaker, set the volume to maximum (configurable).
- Keep the screen on when speaker and/or headset is in used (optional).
- Control for speaker on\off delay (separate delay for on and off).
- Select between using control button or notification on status bar.
- Custom location of the control button.
- Custom transparency of control button.

Default setting is to turn off the speaker quickly when putting it near the ear, but a longer delay to turn it off.
This way if you just move the phone for a second from the ear it will not turn it on.

Any comments\requests can be sent to Just put in the subject "Auto Speaker".

Occasionally Android closes the app so it isn't active when I receive a call (but that's a fundamental Android design flaw); otherwise, app works GREAT, is simple with a smartly designed user-interface, and is easy to configure. I'm surprised this feature doesn't exist as a standard Android feature. My only wish is that the app could be configured to not activate if a Bluetooth device (specifically, headphones) was attached.

Trying to use this for hard of hearing, not for hands free use. Proximity sensor completely incapacitates it for this use. I've tried calibrating the proximity sensor and enabling the fix for not initializing at the start of a call, neither helps. The only thing that helps is turning the phone to face away from me, but I don't want to do that. There needs to be an option to disregard the proximity sensor and simply start the call with speaker on.

When it works its brilliant. But for some reason on my Note9 running Android Pie the service will not start automatically on a call - the notification will show up but it will not start unless manually toggled. It happens after the device has been idle for a while. I suspect the app needs some form of additional permissions so that it is not disabled by the automatic battery optimisations or something like that.
