MacroDroid – Device Automation
MacroDroid is the easiest way to automate your daily tasks on your Android smartphone or tablet. Via the smart user interface MacroDroid offers a simple solution to make automated tasks on your device in just a few taps. MacroDroid helps you by automating the activities you did manually before, and customize them in a way you want it to work for you. A few examples of how MacroDroid can help you to get automated:
# 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)
# Increasing safety during commuting by reading your incoming notifications (via Text to Speech) and sending automated responses via email or SMS
# Make custom sound and notification profiles.
# Remind you to do certain tasks using timers and stopwatches.
These are just a few examples out of hundreds of 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 65 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 notification triggers).
Macros can be triggered automatically, but it is also possible to create a shortcut on the homescreen of your device or start using the unique and customizable Macrodroid sidebar.
2. Select the Actions you like to automate.
MacroDroid can automate more than 100 actions, which you normally 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 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 50 constraint types like: battery level, connected devices, time and day constraints, headphones insterted and many more.
MacroDroids unique interface offers a Wizard that guides step by step through the configuration of your first macros.
It is also possible to use an existing template from the template section and customize it to your needs.
The built-in forum allows you to get help from other users, allowing you to easy learn the ins and outs of MacroDroid.
For more experienced users
MacroDroid offers more comprehensive solutions like use of plugins, use of system/user defined variables, scripts, intents, advance routing like IF, THEN, ELSE clauses, use of AND + ORs
The free version of MacroDroid allows you to configure up to 5 macros. The Pro version (a small one time fee) unleashes the full power of MacroDroid and lets you create an unlimited amount of macros.
Please use the in-app forum for all usage questions and feature requests, or access the forums via www.macrodroid.com.
To report bugs please use the built in ‘Report a bug’ option available via the settings.
This app uses the Device Administrator permission (BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN). This permission is used by the failed login trigger (nothing else) and will only be enabled if you explicitly give MacroDroid device admin access from within the app.
This app uses Accessibility services. It is a useful tool to help those with disabilities use their device more easily. MacroDroid is widely embraced by the blind community and those with limited motor skills to provide simple automations to greatly simplify device usage.

It’s a really good app, I can do much more cool things on my phone now… but there’s one problem though, I can’t delete categories… like when I press delete, nothing happens, only the dialog closes…
Great … this has enabled many users to ‘fix’ Android’s flawed Doze, by waking the phone up on a time schedule. This allows incoming VoIP calls and text to function
Bought Pro to show appreciation to the dev.👍🏼MacroDroid is intuitive and highly functional. It’s actually fun to use. I’m a fairly experienced Tasker user for 7 years. Converted all my Tasker rules (including plugins) and widgets to MacroDroid, relatively straightforward. Responsive developer too😊
This is great automation app. I currently have 2 macros: One launches my calendar every morning at 5:30 AM. The other launches two apps when I approach my gym (geofence trigger) – my membership app and a timer app to time my rest periods between lifting sets. Had an issue with one of the apps not launching in foreground, but quickly figured out that the macro ran too fast for my slow phone to execute the apps. I put a short wait period between app launches and it works like a champ!
Great App, Love it! I have it automatically tuning the sound off at night and back on in the morning. No more social media wake ups in the middle of the night 🙂
One of the best apps on the playstore. It helped me automate most things I do with my phone. I never have to turn off Bluetooth manually or turn off data when I connect to my wifi.
Simply the best, most versatile automation app out there. Nothing else I’ve seen can top it. Huge thanks to the devs. Keep up the good work.
A truely amazing app it has helped me so much but I am having troubles with the geofence feature when I try use one I have configured and it doesn’t show up on the triggers list and when I click done it says please apply at least one trigger
This program basically allows you to use the functions of your phone to your own advantage. There’s all sorts of things your phone can do on it’s own, but your phone just doesn’t use them. This app will let you use those things to their full potential, and will make your phone a WHOLE lot better and more useful! Get this app if you haven’t already!
I will not tolerate full screen ads in ANY app. This is disruptive & over the top. UNINSTALLING RIGHT NOW! I wonder how much revenue a developer gets when someone uninstalls the app because it’s too annoying?
Great, stable, continually-growing. Thx 4 adding ELSEIF. Some minor bugs [annoyances?]: 1. diagonal-arrow maximize: screen won’t scroll smoothly. 2. There a way to clear unused variables from MD? 3. When svg. a macro from maximized mode, at times, chgs. won’t show, they are there, though.
Its amazing and has infinite posibilites to do whatever you want or what gets trough your head…. But has a major flow… Its drains the battery like hell… 10% over night in airplane mode doing nothig compared with 1% before.. Needs optimization very soon.
I have to give it 5 stars. It works fantastic without using any battery at all and only issue is that I wish it had a kill restart or refresh option as I occasionally would like to refresh the app to take new settings or if not picking correct cell tower etc….. Still 5 stars!
Works perfectly, and developer responded to a question in under 24 hours. Well-known deserved 5 stars… Using this to turn on GPS and turn Wi-Fi off when I start WAZE. 2 years after my initial review, and still 5 stars. Countless uses for this app! It’s only limited by your imagination and willingness to use it.
Just a quick.question. Can you bot App s with this app? Or rather, can u make the app follow/repeat/record the actions u make on the screen? The app itself is pretty useful and interesting, saved me.quite some time when i was learning how to code(sorta)
4 stars because you cannot monitor and interact with the sensors properly (eg. measure incline, tilt or shift)…that would be the ultimate tool.
RECICLEMOS INNOVEMOS E INVENTEMOS
Esta app es exelente yo la LLEVE AL ULTIMO NIVEL!!!! En mi canal de YouTub ” Reciclemos innobemos e inventemos” hice trabajar un TANQUE ROBOT BLUETOOTH muy facil de hacer utilizando una MacroDroid
Best Automation app for Android, I get SMS / Mail alerts for power ON/OFF on one miss call, also it send SMS for power On Off automatically. Many more options for automation. Also developer is too supportive. Buying this app now !
When enable accessibility for macrodroid and close all recent apps my capacitive keys stop working (miui8 & miui9) when disable accessibility all works fine again!!! And it is factory OS by the way not a custom one
This is an excellent automation app. I’m still coming up with new ways to use it. Templates and Forum are really helpful. Buy the full app, it is well worth the small amount you contribute! The Dev is very helpful.
An automation app that cannot stop a running app unless your phone is rooted, which I’m not prepared to do, as it voids warranty. Rather limited use because it cannot stop foreground apps. App developer is rude too. A little disappointing.
This is better than automate, but can you add an action that causes all apps to update? Because I’m trying to create a macro when the device is plugged in, all apps update.
Very good though -else if -possiblility to put actions into if clause conditions would be very helpful Then you will get five stars
Simple to use. This app has become my favourite way to automate tasks on my phone.
Great app. Mainly using for geofencing WiFi and volume/vibrate and it works well.
Not what I expected when looking for a macro. I expected an application that can mimic my touches on the screen, but I dont think you can do this on this app. This app is certainly useful, just not for me.
Great way to automate your whole life through your phone. Although there should be a way to toggle mobile data without rooting the phone.
I extensively use it for location and time based “automation”. It works seamlessly on my MiA1. Simple to configure and backup. Kudos.
