Hello, is it possible to get bixby to turn on/off mobile hotspot for a specific period of time? I need to turn on and off hotspot quite frequently, and sometimes forget its on and draining battery. I have created a couple Bixby routines for 5 and 10 minute hotspot sessions, when I press the routine shortcut it turns hotspot on, waits 5 minutes, and then turns hotspot off. it would be nice to just say "hey Bixby, turn on hotspot for 10 minutes or whatever desired amount of time depending on task being done.

Hi, Unfortunately, there is no option for bixby to perform that action.

However, we suggest you to check in Bixby routines and create customer routine and see if you have the option and please keep us posted.

You could try setting up a Tasker Routine to control your WiFi HotSpot.

Ok I figured out a way to at least voice activate the routines i have set for 5,10, and 20 minute hotspot.

Example routine for 10 minutes of hotspot is
When - triggered manually
Then - run quick command - turn hotspot on
Then wait "10 minutes" or other specified time
Then - turn off hotspot

I also disabled the reverse actions.

I then named the routine hot 10 because other terms interfere with other bixby commands

Then to use voice you can say
Run - hot 10 routine
Or
Turn on - hot 10 routine
Or
Launch - hot 10 routine
