    It’ll take me until long after this post to get over the fact that I’m asking a bixby question other than how to completely disable it.

    Bixby routines look interesting. I can set a routine so that when I connect to a specific Bluetooth device (my car), my wifi is completely shut off. What I would like to do, but can’t seem to find is: when my car Bluetooth disconnects, turn on wifi but only if my home wifi is there to connect to (I don’t want my wifi turned on if I shut the car off at, for example, a mall).

    I basically want to be able to select a specific wifi network in a routine just like I can select a specific Bluetooth device. Doable? If not, I know I can use one of the 3rd party apps that can do this…but would prefer to to do it without a 3rd party app if possible.

    As far as I know this isn't possible as Bixby Routines is very basic.

    What I did was use my location. It perfectly located mu home address so when I'm home, my wifi goes on. Leave home it goes off.

    That certainly makes sense. Problem for me is that I keep location off unless in use (ex during Waze). I basically try to keep Bluetooth and location and wifi off at all times unless in use. The old Llama program was great for wifi on/off... Used cell tower id's... But its functionality is long gone.

    Appreciate the response. I'm sure this will end up being something for Tasker or Macro Droid. Hopefully bixby routines continues to evolve with more specific triggers.

    The ultra gets such incredible battery life, I see no need to keep those off. I need bluetooth for my smartwatch and car, location for safety, and as I said my wifi goes off once I leave my house.
