    Hi all, I'm new to android and tasker, and have what seems like a fairly simple request. I've set up a couple profiles so far and have another I'd like. I want to launch songza when I plug in my headphones, but only if wifi is working. Otherwise do nothing. Now the launching Songza when headphones in is fine it's the wifi part I'm struggling with.

    Thanks for the help.

    Create a 2nd context for Wifi on in your profile. Specifically:
    long-press on your first context.
    Select Add
    Select State
    Variable Value
    Wifi Status (%Wifi)

    Or else use and If statement in your task.
    If Wifi ~ *on*
    do your stuff
    End if

    What problems are you having.

    Thanks!! I guess the and if part wasn't working because of a lack of caps!! thanks again :)


    P.S. The exit task part still seems not to work I would like it to kill the app so:

    I set exit task
    Kill app
    and if
    %WIFI ~ ???

    Thanks again

    Why do you need "and if" in the exit task?

    The exit task only runs when the profile's contexts are no longer met.

    Or you can use WiFi connected as a context with your headphones context

    That's what I ended up doing just took me a while to figure it out.

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
