When we put the mobile on charge, it can be easy to miss it when it finished charging, having to go and check it every now and then. A curious solution is to have the mobile say aloud that it has been fully charged, with the use of the Automate automation app.

With this application we will create an automation whereby as soon as the mobile is fully charged, the message you want will be broadcast. This is something that is not possible at the moment with the routines of Google Assistant or with IFTTT.

Have the mobile tell you when it has been charged

First, you’ll need the Automate automation app, which is free (with in-app purchases) and much more complex and powerful than IFTTT. The bad news is that it isn’t available in Spanish, although we don’t have to deal with it far beyond configuring our set of rules and actions.


Automation can be a bit overwhelming at first, although it all makes sense once you start to figure out what is what. It’s an app that, instead of being limited to linear sets of conditions and actions, introduces nodes to control the flow of automation. However, our automation is going to be very simple, so it only has three nodes, including the first one.

Press the floating + button to create the first project, which begins with a starting node. Press the + button again to add the first block. You must choose Battery level ?, in the Battery and power category. Tap this node after adding it to the panel and change its value from Minimum Level to 100%.

Back in the project overview, make a GO link from Flow starting to IN from When battery level, by drawing a line with your finger, which will connect the two blocks. We already have the condition, but we are missing the action that will take place.

Tap the + floating button and add the Speak block in Camera and sound. Tap on it to access its settings and enter the text you want to read in the Message section. It is recommended to also specify the language in Language, and it is worth choosing the TTS engine in Engine, in case you have several different ones on your mobile.

Press Save to return to the project preview and link the YES of When battery level to IN of Speak, linking them together. The end result of your project should be something similar to the following image.

Go back and you can edit the automation to change its name, although that’s completely optional. To do this, you need to press the pencil button and then choose the label button. Tap Save.

Now it only remains to start the automation, which will keep Automate aware of changes in the battery level of the mobile. Right below the buttons you can see the log with the progress of conditions and actions.

It only remains to wait for the battery to reach 100%, or the amount you have configured. At that time, the mobile will play the message you specified using the mobile’s TTS engine. The only downside is that you have to leave the mobile unlocked for the application to perform the action. Otherwise, it will work as soon as you unlock it.
