Hi,

I was using shortcuts of the "OpenVPN for Android"  app via "Open and app or do an app action" in  Bixby Routines a few months. It was working just fine for automation of VPN connection/disconnection on certain conditions.

After recent update(s), not sure exactly when but probably when the routines+ was added, this shortcuts disappeared from the list of available apps in "Open and app or do an app action" section, thus the automation does work anymore...

Does anyone have the same issue and have a solution/work around for this ?

It's the actual app and not the shortcut. There should be (at least there used to be) Connect/Disconnect shortcuts listed along with the app. I reinstalled the app but it did not help, I also reset the Bixby routines but no result.

Can you install the older version of the app?

I was a beta tester for the app, then after noticing the problem I leave it, uninstalled the app and installed it again. Currently the play store shows that the app last updated on Mar 15, so I don't think it's related to the app as the problem that I've described appeared in last few days/weeks.
