You may need to power off your phone, maybe for a meeting or perhaps to save battery and then you obviously want it to be back powered on. But you cannot do this religiously every time you go to a meeting or you go sleeping, also sometimes you may even forget to switch it on after turning it off. In order to address the issue, some companies these days provide auto power on/off features in their phones. But what about other phones? Well, don’t worry, today I’m gonna talk about ways to schedule auto power on/off on Android.

Ways to Schedule Auto Power On/Off on Android

If your phone doesn’t have this feature in-built, you can go for a third-party app. Here, I’m discussing both the ways- the in-built feature and the third-party apps. Read on!

Auto power on/off can be done on most devices by heading to the settings and looking for the feature. The feature is available on many phones with custom skin including OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi. Follow the steps which are similar for all:
