Now you need the plugin for Amarok. You can find the latest version here:

  • All source files (licensed under GPL)


Use the Script Manager in Amarok to install the downloaded plugin.

Apart from the self-explaining features like play, pause, forward, backward and such, a long-tap on the buttons gives you additional features:

You can move the slider to seek in the playing track.

Press the menu button on your phone and tap on Playlist to view the playlist from Amarok. Tap on an item to play this track.
