Earphone button not working?

I'm using a BQ Aquaris E4.5 and I'm not able to operate the earphone button to pause/play the songs or answer a call.
Is that button in the mic area that use to allow answer calls, play/stop music, etc.
Now that I remember it seems to me that it works when answering calls, but not for the music player.
Is it working for anyone?

@uzanto What is the earphone button?
I forgot to specify what I meant, I'm editing the first post.

There is an older bug issue in LP. The signalling is inband and not compatible with BQ.
Here is the link to LP: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dialer-app/+bug/1462591
Thank you for answer, do you know why is not compatible with BQ E4.5? on Android it worked properly.
Someone knows how the system reads the button presses? I found some information about that It's about voltage reading but I don't know if is needed a special hardware to do it.

It doesn't work on the OnePlus One either, even though it works on the OPO in android.
I can hangup a call, but I have no control on player, I think is working but not implemented properly, if someone finds information on how the system works that puts it here because I'm interested.
Here what I get from dbus-monitor while clicking the play/pause button:
