    Welcome to Android Central! I assume it's the type that you plug into the headphone jack, and not a Bluetooth stick, right?

    Open the camera app, and check its settings for an option to have the volume button act as the shutter release. Make sure that's turned on.

    I had a similar issue and was able to set the volume controls to trigger the camera - but only by manually pressing them. Still does not work with the selfie stick plugged in to the headphone jack. Any ideas?

    Even with wired headphones the volume controls do not activate the camera. Perhaps there is a camera app that supports using bt volume controls to activate the shutter?

    In fact, I just looked. There is an app called Remote Shutter Camera by Mobile Apps Studio. It has a bunch of one star reviews, but it may be worth a try.

    See my post two above yours. Try the app in the play store I mentioned and see if that works with the selfie stick.

    You need to download the Camera 360 app and use it to take your photos using the selfie stick.

    I tried Camera360 with my MotoG. It didn't work for me. I'll try the other app mentioned above... CoolPlay Camera.

    Won't work. It's not the settings on the camera app, or what camera app you use. It just doesn't work with the Droid Maxx. (For the Droid Maxx, you need a selfie stick with a Bluetooth actuator).

    Use Moto voice. "Ok Google now, take a selfie." That should work.

    The problem has to do with the gyroscope. Download selfr from the Google play store. It's a selfie stick app that allows you to set the command level. On the app go to preferences and set it for about between 30,000 and 40,000.
    I hope this helps.

    For the Droid Maxx you can use woofie camera if you have a stick that connects through the headphone plug.

    Try the app Open Camera. It still won't make your selfie stick work. But you can have the camera snap by making a sound, like "cheese".

    You can do that with the stock camera and Moto Voice. "[Launch phrase], take a photo" or "... take a selfie".
