[Other] How to Control the Camera and Music Player With Amazfit Bip?

Hello Mi Fans!

So today we will learn how to control the camera and Music Player with Amzfit Bip and make it more useful from it .Remember to follow the guide thoroughly to avoid any sort of errors .

How to Connect :
Pairing the app with the Amazfit Bip is pretty easy. You need to have Mi-Fit installed and the band connected to the Mi-Fit app. Now, install the Mi Band2/3 & Amazfit Selfie app and open it. The app will auto-discover the MAC Address of the Amazfit Bip if it is connected with Mi-Fit.

Error in identifying try this:
In case the app fails to identify the watch, you can manually enter the MAC Address in the text box. To find the MAC Address of the Bip, open the Mi-Fit app-Profile Section and tap on the Amazfit Bip under the "My Devices” .

Once you are on the Amazfit Bip page, scroll down to the bottom of the page. Here, you will find “Bluetooth Address” which in turn is the MAC Address of Amazfit Bip.

Now, after you have entered the MAC Address, click on the Connect button at the bottom.

After you click on the connect button, wait for a few seconds and the app will establish connection with the watch. As soon as it does, the Connect button at the bottom will change to Disconnect.

After the app has successfully connected with the watch, open the camera app. In our case, we have installed the Bacon Camera app. Now, we just need to open the camera app and single tap the button on Amazfit Bip. It will trigger the camera shutter and click a picture. The band vibrates mildly indicating it has clicked a picture.


This is a handy utility when you want to take a group picture or if you have the camera mounted on a tripod. Although, it would have been better if it worked with all the camera apps. There wasn’t much of  problem for us since we were already using Bacon Camera.
Another drawback is the single click works as the back button in Amazfit Bip. Hence, when you have the Mi Band 2/3 & Amazfit Selfie connected to the watch, the back button features ceases to function. The only way to combat this is to connect the Mi Band 2/3 & Amazfit Selfie app only when you have to take a picture.

Amazfit Bip Music Control

Unfortunately, there is not a single app which lets you control both music player and camera. For a music player, we would need another third-party app called “Amazfit BIP Assistant“. This is one of those apps with poor UI but extremely useful functionalities.
Anyways, once you have the app installed, open it and it will ask you to enter the MAC Address manually.

Once you have the band connected to the app, you will have a screen to customize the watch button actions. In case it looks confusing, we are on the same plane. I have kept the action to “2 Pause 3 Next” which means two times tap would pause/play the song and 3 times tap would move to the next song.

You also get a slider which lets you customize the interval between the clicks. The default value of 600 ms is fine and would work for most of you.

You also have the option to map long press of the button to either enable Google Assistant on the volume control. However, please make sure that you don’t have other actions assigned to long press. In our case, the long press was mapped to start Outdoor Running activity. In such scenarios, you will have conflicts and the actions won’t work as desired.
