Modes & Routines Bugs After One UI 6 Update

I've seen some bugs in Modes and Routines since installing the big One UI 6/Android 14 update on my A54 5G. The most annoying is to do with wired earphones. I have a routine to play music as soon as I plug in my phones, and it stopped working. On investigation I found the trigger of wired phones being connected or disconnected doesn't do anything. Also, the media volume routine that allows you to set volumes for phone speakers, wired phones and Bluetooth doesn't affect wired phones. I use old earphones with a jack plug and an adapter to connect them to my USB C port. When I plug them in, my phone's volume levels all change to correspond with different levels for connected phones, as they should, and I can still adjust the volume manually. I've been using this routine for ages, I use wired phones because these particular ones fit under my motorcycle helmet for the commute home.

I've managed to create an alternate routine that gets triggered when I turn on a Mode. But I hope this issue gets addressed soon.

Also, just recently, a few days before the One UI 6 update, SmartThings doesn't work with location based routines. For example: 'If I am at home, then turn on the light'. Or, 'If I am not at home, set location Mode to away'. Things like that are not currently working.

This is why I get concerned whenever SmartThings or Modes and Routines gets an update lol. I hope they can fix them soon.

Smartthings is working for me OK now. I searched the Web and apparently it happens now and again, where the location routines play up, but rectifies itself after a few days lol.

I'm looking out for an update to Modes and Routines to fix the problem with wired earphones being recognised, as it still doesn't work. I'm using a location routine now, so my music starts playing as I am leaving work, rather than when my wired earphones are first connected.

Maybe the next phone update will fix things. I know they added an 'If music is playing' option for Modes and Routines in the recent phone update, so the fact that they have tinkered with audio options makes me think it might have effected other audio options.

What is your routine you have set up? For example: If 'Bluetooth device' is connected, then 'play music'.

I don't personally have info on this, but I'd suggest that you send error logs via the Members app, as this is the best way to reach the dev team. :smiling-face:

Well, i did it, i send my question via Members app, and i received a answer.

Samsung is aware , and the suggestion is until a fix is delivered, that i disable bixby voice activation, and google  assistent voice activation.

And so far, so good!

Thanks for your suggestion.

This update often has many problems 

For me, any game that works in landscape mode such as Rocket League and PUBG closes immediately when opened (crash)
