Please add more Bixby routine options. It's kinda limited. For example I want to block all calls while playing a game without sending a refusing message, I want to Bluetooth to turn of automatically or after 5 minutes since I've disconnected a Bluetooth device such as Samsung Buds.

 

Also how to block calls on S10+? I can't find an option.

Block only calls or calls and texts? Is it not possible just to airplane mode?

Also have you played around with Bixby Routines + yet? You can get it as an option if you have downloaded Samsung's Good Lock customisation app. You basically record a sequence of actions/touches as if you were doing a screen recording of what you would do without a Bixby routine to accomplish the action. It then saves that screen recording and replicates the actions you performed but much quicker.

There are now a much broader range of possibilities due to this, I've not had the time to experiment fully but I've done a few cool ones to realise it's got heaps of potential. But the pages you pass through or actions you conduct are based on touches on specific areas in the screen so if say a sequence of button presses or clicks to the end destination are not always located in the exact same place on the screen for whatever reason, it won't work. I found this out when trying to get a specific playlist to play when I enter my car but the playlist changes if you add extra playlists over time. Not much of an issue but I had another example that was better but it has eluded me.

Hope that makes a lick of sense.

A bit about the advanced options available via Good Lock here https://www.androidpolice.com/2021/05/02/samsungs-latest-good-lock-module-adds-powerful-new-options-... 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

How to activate DND?

 

Issue is that one call freezes the game while I'm playing it through mobile data.

Of course. I've gone through all setting son my phone, I'm an advanced user. 

 

S10+? First of all, flagship from 2019 top notch but the last software update is this years Android 12. That should be the biggest judgment. Awesome camera, screen, front camera is too big in that pill shape now that I've used A52 5G with a small punch hole.
