    Finally, programming your phone to do things is part of the One UI!!! I've been using this feature for many years from an app (auto switch) in the play store. The Note 10's Bixby Routines is the best software feature to be added on a phone in a very long time. It was also very recently part of a separate Samsung app by downloading Good Lock.

    You are basically automating your phone by programming it to do something based on a condition.....making your smartphone smarter.

    So far I have 12 Routines:

    -Open my train app 8am
    -Open my train app at 6pm
    -Put my phone on vibrate when I get on the train M, T, TH
    -Put my phone on mute when I got to work at 9am M,T,TH
    -Unlock my phone, turn wifi on, volume up when I am home
    -Open Skype for business at 9am on W,F when I work from home
    -Turn my wifi off when I leave my house
    -Open Pandora when I get in my car
    -AOD is always on when charging. (my AOD is on schedule to go off between 2am and 7am.
    -Open Google Music when I put my beats solo wireless headphones on for the gym
    -Open Pandora when I connect to my Galaxy Buds
    -Medium Power Saving mode at 5% (Unfortunately, I don't think it will go into Max power saving like it did on the good lock download to sip power. I already am always on medium power saving. I may download Good Lock just for max power saving option. I woke up Saturday with a dead battery after being out all night. Automatic Max Power switch preventing your phone from dying could be very valuable.)


    I'm always open to good ideas for my phone to be more automated....post your routines!

    Great stuff! I use this daily.

    Go to bed - automatically at 10pm runs things to make sure any notifications won't go off, turns off wifi, slow things down with battery saver.

    At home - automatically turns off mobile data and turns on wifi

    at work - automatically turn on mobile data and wifi off (cannot use work's wifi), turns sounds to vibrate only

    in a meeting button - when I push this it turns the phone into complete silence.

    I love bixby routines. Back on my Note8 I used Bixby by voice to let it know I am at work. Now it knows by magic!

    It's something I've never really looked at in detail but reading your post makes me think about adding some routines for sure.

    Oh wow, I guess this is where the Routines app (from Good Lock) went to. I hadn't looked at it yet, and glad to see it in integrated now!

    How did you managed to activate leave for work and at home routine? Because when I activate both of them he automatically activates both profiles.

    And then he's doing exactly the opposite what needs to be doing haha


    The routines I have
    At home turn turn on wifi deactivate, turn off AOD, time out screen 1 min, NFC off

    Leaving from home is the opposite from above with screen timeout 15 secs

    At work same schedule as at home
    And leaving work interfere with at home.

    When opening camera DND mode.

    Automatic screen turn when opening youtube gallery Google foto's and zoem others apps.

    When charging AOD on

    And at evenings between 22:00 and 06:00 and not charging battery saver on medium.

    Is "Bixby Routines" only available on the Note 10? I couldn't find it in the Google Play Store.

    I'm sure I had it on the Note 9 also, it would be Samsung specific software so won't be on google play it would come with a software update.

    If you guys really like Bixby over Google Assistant, but don't like the Side Key for Bixby, you can also remap the Google Assistant button to Bixby.

    Settings > Apps; Go to Additional Options in the 3 Dots > Default Apps > Device Assistance App

    Its preinstalled on the Note 10 series and Galaxy S10 series. But if you have any galaxy older than that you have to download Good Lock to get Bixby Routines.

    That may be unfortunate for you, but others might benefit from it, considering Google never allowed their assistant button the be replaced with anything else before.

    It's about time. I've been using the sound profile so 6 to handle this for Mr as all I need is to turn off my ringer at work. Some Motorola phones had this back in the day until Google bought them and tried to force assistant on us.

    I ended up seeing up a start work and end work profile. The former is triggered by time and location. I'm going it tries to detect all the time so if I go to work later in the day, it doesn't trigger. But will when I get there. Not sure how it will work with lunch yet. May have to adjust this later. My end work profile goes just by time.

    The interface for this is a little wonky. Seems overly simplified. I'm just not confident about how it works based on the screen, but I'm sure I'll figure it out pretty quickly.

    You guys are more prodigious users of Routines than I. I set up one to turn off wi-fi and unlock the phone when I'm driving, and another to turn on wi-fi and turn off sound when I'm at work. Also I've got an auto-detect routine to turn off everything but Bluetooth if I go to sleep without placing my phone on the charger.

    You aren't alone. All I set it up for is to turn my phone on vibrate for certain hours on nights I have to work. Thata all I had the brain power to set up and it took me weeks to get it right.lol

    From what I saw on YouTube it looks like you can set up some pretty cool routines similar to IFTTT. I could see myself setting up a couple of routines like when I get to work to turn of ringer, turn on vibrate & medium power save mode. I will give this a good look when I get my phone hopefully by this Friday (8/30).

    this feature is something I will likely use a lot. IFTTT never really gave me what I wanted and AutomateIt Pro wasn't consistent. I'm hoping this feature will help with the things I need done without doing it myself.

    I wish I could set the 'If' statement with the contingency that multiple conditions are met. For instance I would like the goodnight routine to be - If 10pm - 7am AND the phone is charging Then blah blah blah. Do I have to get tasker for that?

    I wish we had more control over the effects of Routines. For example I'd love to be able to turn the lift to wake gesture on and off, so that it only turns on when my phone is at work (and therefore on my desk). Maybe a Samsung developer will read this post and be inspired.
