Shortcuts for Places and Modes in the Samsung Connect app

The star icon beside your Place or Mode while editing your Place indicates a shortcut on the home screen. The shortcuts are created by default when you connect a device to a Place or when you create a Mode

  • Place shortcuts appear in the sliding carousel of the home screen
  • Mode shortcuts appear near the bottom of the home screen


To view the shortcut settings: 

  1. Tap My Devices
  2. Swipe to your Place
  3. Tap the three dots in the top right
  4. Tap Edit
  5. Add or remove the stars from the Place or Modes as desired


Note: The app will not display a shortcut for a Place with no devices connected, even if the star is selected in the settings.
