    I just freshly wiped my KeyOne. I didn't really use the Convenience key prior to this, but I am thinking I want to start using it for something. I am curious, how many of you use the Convenience key and what you use it for?

    I use the convenience key to activate Google Assistant. Super handy since it rarely recognizes me saying, "Hey Google!"

    Via button mapper single press camera, double press video camera, long press Google Assistant.

    I shouldn't have to use an app to do this, this should be the baked in options for actions. Having 3 profiles I can live with, but pushing the convenience key and then choosing between 3 on screen apps is idiotic.

    Google search, the activity shortcut starts the search with they input text field in focus, so I can start typing immediately.

    I didn't go with using the remapper, as you then lose the mute functionality during calls (which is super convenient)

    Using the built in Convenience Key 3-app function, I use it to bring up phone functions:
    -Dialer
    -Contacts
    -Visual Voicemail

    Using Buttons Remapper App:
    Double Click = Flashlight (This works even with the screen off and locked MOST OF THE TIME)

    I use an app called "pull down status bar" it pulls either the notifications or the quick settings. I have it set to quick settings. very useful!

    Great ideas!! I think I'll start with the Hub. I miss the bb10 days of sweeping for the hub.

    I may try some of the others. Pull down status bar is a neat idea.

    Can the Convenience key be configured as a play / pause button or need a third party app for that?

    but why have two shortcuts to the camera? double press of power button launches the camera.

    Google Assistant. I don't like having an "always on" mic, so I've disabled "OK Google"

    I don't use it. I'd be quite happy if it never existed. sick and tired of calls being muted accidentally. I wish it would go away.

    Soapm, I have no idea how it happens, assuming it's hard wired into the o/s. Don't try it can't be bypassed. Remappers don't work.

    On my KEYᵒⁿᵉ I used the Convenience key to open Hub in any app, also had the H key as a Hub shortcut.
    On my Key² I first set the Convenience key to speed dial my wife (along with a shortcut letter) but I was constantly accidentally calling her. So now it's back to Hub.
