Yes, the same way as a button, slider, etc… just as you show above, using a
Blynk.virtualWrite(vPin, value) command, works for me on Android.
You will have to follow that up with a
Blynk.syncVirtual(vPin) to "process " the command as if it was pressed on the App in order to trigger whatever Blynk function it controls. Again same as sketch controlled buttons, sliders and so on.
