How to use Bixby Routines

Last Update Date : Feb 26. 2019

Bixby Routines uses machine intelligence to learn your usage patterns and preferences. It can then use this to automatically adjust settings, control apps, optimise the battery, and much more.

 

You can also manually set up routines yourself based on where you are and what you’re doing.

 

For example, create a ‘good night’ routine so that at a certain time the sound on your phone goes to mute, night mode goes on, and your lock screen shortcuts change.
