Samsung Galaxy Buds+ is now supported by Bixby Routines
There are a lot of great services out there for creating “routines” with your gadgets. If you’re in the Samsung ecosystem, Bixby Routines is a decent option. It has many of the Tasker-like features you would expect from a routines service, including integration with devices. The recently launched Galaxy Buds+ are now supported as well.
Previously, the Galaxy Buds+ could only be used for “If” actions, like any other Bluetooth device. That means you could automate actions when your buds connect to your phone. A recent update to Bixby Routines, however, added “Then” clauses for the Buds+. Now you can use the Galaxy Buds+ as the receiving end of a routine, so “if” something happens, the Buds+ can perform an action.
Reddit user madn3ss795 provided a few examples of what you can do with the Galaxy Buds+ in Bixby Routines:
- Gaming Mode only when gaming
- Ambient sound on when you’re outside your house
- Equalizer Clear when using a news app
- Enable/disable reading notification only at a set hour and/or place
You can quickly see how Bixby Routines can be a handy addition to the Galaxy Buds+. Having features like Gaming Mode and Ambient sound can be great, but ultimately if you find it cumbersome to switch them on and off, you’re not going to use them.
