    I am seeing a very annoying problem with Google Listen on Android (I
    think this behavior has started since the most recent update a couple
    of weeks back, but I am not sure)

    I am using the Nexus One (Android v 2.1)

    1. Start Google Listen, using the wired headset.
    2. Start listening to some podcast
    3. Press the play/pause button from the headset
    4. With the old version of Listen, the podcast would be paused. When
    you pressed the button again, the podcast playback would resume. This
    was very nice.
    However, now - when I press play/pause from the headset -- the
    music player starts up. Sometimes, the podcast stops when music player
    starts up, sometimes it continues to play. Sometimes I get weird error
    messages on listen.
    This is really annoying.

    Is anybody else seeing the same problem?

    @ bongster:

    I'm having exactly the same issue on my T-Mobile Pulse w. 2.1, location Hungary. It's like unbelievable - that's why I started googling, ended up at your remark, and had to create a %!(>#Đ@ account in order to be able to place a freakin' remark. Getting really pissed off at all these create-an-account-first forums + websites... screw 'm all. But anyhow, Bongster: u know what happpened to me and the Listen issue?... it makes a difference what headphone I use! I have some of those lying around (from old Nokia phones etc), and tried them, and the one I used when I installed Listen from Android Market is the only one that does not cause the music player annoyance. I'm completely dazzled at this, just don't get it. Not that this really helps you - just thought I let u know about this. BR.

    I have now been upgraded to Android 2.2.

    However, this problem still happens intermittently. Whether or not the problem will happen seems to depend on whether the Listen app is running in the foreground or not.

    However, I have not had time to do experiments and have not been able to narrow it down yet.

    Also, note I use the standard stock Nexus One headset. Based on my (limited) observation, I doubt this problem has to do with which headset you use.
