Tell us what Bixby Routines you have set up on your Galaxy smartphone!

Bixby Routines turned out to be one of the hidden gems on the Galaxy S10 lineup as far as new features were concerned. The overall sentiment towards Bixby may not be as good as Samsung would want it to be more than two years after it was first introduced, but Bixby Routines is an excellent little feature that everyone will find useful. Based on the If This Then That (IFTTT) principle, Bixby Routines lets you automate various tasks on your phone by defining what should happen if a certain condition is met.

For example, you can set up your phone to start playing music and enable Dolby Atmos as soon as it connects to your car stereo, switch to vibration when you’re in a particular location, enable Always On Display when the charger is connected, or ask it to read your notifications out loud from your most-used apps when you wake up in the morning. Every ‘routine’ can have multiple parameters so the possibilities are plentiful, and since Bixby Routines already has a big list of actions and conditions to choose from, creating routines is a pretty simple and straightforward process.

What kind of custom routines have you set up on your Galaxy S10 or other Galaxy smartphone that supports Bixby Routines? We’d love to know, and we’re sure our readers would love it as well if they can find some routines they haven’t been able to think about on their own but would be very useful in their day-to-day lives. So go ahead, tell us all the routines you’ve got running on your device down in the comments section! Remember to detail what conditions you have set up in the If soon and the actions from the Then section to help others set something similar on their devices.

I would use Bixby if I knew that my data would not be sold and distrihuted to 3rd parties. Google’s evil — it’s privacy abuses are never ending — but Samsung is no better.

Does anyone here realize you sign away your privacy when you agree to Bixby’s TOS?

Can I set a Bixby routine to force close the Bluetooth app and clear cache?

I jus have AOD when charging enabled
And when using Google/Samsung Pay, turn on NFC.
Also, when opening the Play Store – turn on Download Booster so large apps download quicker.

I used to have, open Music app when Bluetooth headphones have connected. But that became a bit annoying when just wanting to use them for YouTube etc.

When I connect my mobile in the car Bluetooth, Routines turn on the Tomtom, GPS, Spotify and read Messages, WhatsApp and others and reduce the Bright of the screen while it is charging. After the Bluetooth disconnected everything back to the usual.

Your welcome…. It’s been a pleasure, I’m not an English native Speaker as I speak Spanish as native Language.
Sometimes typing and writing (and also speakiing) is confusing to me, because of what I told you first. I hope you understood me well.

I set up a driving one but it refuses to even start playing spotify when it connects to my car like it’s meant to so didn’t bother setting any other routine up.

I might do at some point.

I have configured three commands:
1. Good night: Which turns off the data, wifi, set the brightness to 30, Turn Blue Light filter ON, Set alarm for next day.
2. Good Morning: Turns OFF blue light filter, Set Brightness to 50, turn the phone volumes to maximum.
3. Let’s Drive: Turns on the GPS, MAPS, Music Player and bluetooth.

I use it on note 9 with an application XDA “nicelock” then I download the APK of Good Lock that I wish.
But I don’t think they will put it on note 9 officially.

I believe this feature utilizes the NPU present on S10. So, not sure they can bring it to Note9. I could be wrong, however!
