About this app

MacroDroid is the easiest way to automate tasks on your Android smartphone or tablet. Via the straightforward user interface MacroDroid makes it possible to build fully automated tasks in just a few taps.

A few examples of how MacroDroid can help you to get automated:

# Increasing safety during commuting by reading your incoming notifications (via Text to Speech) and sending automated responses via email or SMS
# Optimize your daily workflow on your phone; switch on bluetooth and start playing music when you enter your car. Or switch on WiFi when you are near your house.
# Reduce battery drain (like dimming your screen and switching Wifi off)
# Saving on roaming costs (automatically switch off your Data)
# Make custom sound and notification profiles.
# Remind you to do certain tasks using timers and stopwatches.

These are just a few examples out of limitless scenarios where MacroDroid can make your Android life a little easier. With only 3 simple steps this is how it works:

1. Select a Trigger.

The trigger is the cue for the macro to start. MacroDroid offers over 70 triggers to start your macro, i.e. location based triggers (like GPS, cell towers, etc), device status triggers (like battery level, app starting/closing), sensor triggers (like shaking, light levels, etc) and connectivity triggers (like Bluetooth, Wifi and Notifications).
You can also create a shortcut on the homescreen of your device or run using the unique and customizable Macrodroid sidebar.

2. Select the Actions you like to automate.

MacroDroid can perform over 100 different actions, that you typically would do by hand. Connect to your Bluetooth or Wifi device, select volume levels, speak text (like your incoming notifications or current time), start a timer, dim your screen, run Tasker plugin and many more.

3. Optionally: Configure Constraints.

Constraints help you to let the macro fire only when you want it to.
Living near your work, but only want to connect to your company's Wifi during work days? With a constraint you can select specific times or days that the macro can be invoked. MacroDroid offers over 50 constraint types.

MacroDroid is compatible with Tasker and Locale plugins to expand the range of possibilities even further.

= For beginners =

MacroDroid's unique interface offers a Wizard that guides step by step through the configuration of your first macros.

= For more experienced users =

MacroDroid offers more comprehensive solutions like the use of Tasker and Locale plugins, system/user defined variables, scripts, intents, advance logic like IF, THEN, ELSE clauses, use of AND/OR

The free version of MacroDroid is ad-supported and allows you to configure up to 5 macros. The Pro version (a small one time fee) removes all adverts and allows an unlimited amount of macros.

Very bad. I tried to do some basic things, there are not enough options. Width of floating text can't be set. Also, for some reason my floating button needs 2 CLICKS to activate floating text... This is very simple stuff. App interface looks like it's for kids. I tried to enable wifi with a text message saying .enablewifi and of course it doesn't work without tapping the screen, many permissions removed from new versions of Android but that's not MacroDroid's fault but it makes the app useless.

Yooooo!!! Holy hell. Was trying to do the most simplistic automation on my Pixel 7 (earbuds connect to Bluetooth, turn on DND; earbuds disconnect from Bluetooth, turn DND off) and this made it possible! I'm not sure if I over complicated the macros by creating two separate and not sure if there a way to do it all as one (developer, let me know if so!) but it totally worked and I'm super grateful to have found this!

Look no further for phone automation! I've been using this to reject phone calls from people I don't want to talk to, instead of having awkward conversations lol. I've also used it to open apps for meditation, listen to audiobooks, and establish new habits for my mental health! I'm recovering from some challenges in that area, and this app has helped automate a bunch of recovery tools I could NEVER remember on my own. Whoever created this is gifted. 🔥 Try this app, you'll love what it does!
