New to Samsung and Android. How do I turn on driving mode automatically when phone detects driving without using Bluetooth? I was able to do this with my IPhone

Welcome to the Samsung community!

Do an app search for "Modes"
Open the app and you will see Modes and Routines. The latter is a whole new level of automation with "if" "then" logic. Very powerful.

For Modes, you will see the various options including Drive mode of which you will need to set up for the first time. The app will walk you through the setup.

You can also add the Modes toggle button to your Quick Settings notification shade.
I am currently in Relax mode. The user sets the parameters for sound, screen brightness, eye care, device connections and more for each mode.
The modes also sync with and can be activated with a Galaxy watch!
Once you setup Drive Mode it will activate automatically when the conditions you set are met such as connecting to your car's Bluetooth.
Set it and forget it!
Pretty cool. 😎
For example, when my phone connects to my car, I have battery protect turn on so the phone doesn't charge over 85%. This setting toggles off when out of Drive Mode.
Lots of options. Enjoy!

Thanks for this. I don't connect my phone to my car's Bluetooth. Is Samsung unable to detect driving without connecting to Bluetooth? Based on detected motion like the iPhone IMG-20231007-WA0001_1000041912_1696683153.jpg

I believe you could set a similar condition, such as when Android Auto is running, then drive mode would turn on with other actions you set when in this mode.

Also, go into settings and look for the topic of choice. In your case search for DRIVING

Hope that helps in the future

These are the available conditions to automatically activate Drive Mode. I don't see the ability to have motion such as driving? Screenshot_20231007_081229_Modes and Routines.jpgScreenshot_20231007_081237_Modes and Routines.jpg
