Side keys

The SidekeyCommand allows you to change the functionality of the side keys on supported devices. You can change the keycode or launch an app.

The name you have to use for each button differs from product to product.
However, there will be no error if you use an invalid name and there shouldn’t be any conflicting names. This means that you can still use the same staging project across multiple products.

Please find the actual names for the different buttons below:
