The most reliable way to interact with Yonomi on iOS is through Siri, the Yonomi Favorites widget, or in the app itself.

However, in order to control some of your devices in other contexts, like Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, we take advantage of several iOS technologies you may have disabled or opted out of.

Please ensure the following are enabled for Yonomi:

  • Background App Refresh
  • Notifications

Additionally, swiping Yonomi out of your app switcher will not allow the app to wake up in the background to run your routines. Please, don’t remove it.

Contrary to popular belief, swiping apps out of the switcher can actually have a negative impact on performance and battery life on your device.

If your device is in “Low Power Mode”, Yonomi routines involving certain devices should still continue to work, but may not run at the expected time.
