    I just upgraded to the S9. On my old phone, I was able to set alarms to locations so that they would only go off, for example, at work. I'm unable to find that option on the S9. Yes, Location Services are turned on.

    Any ideas? This function was really useful for me and I'd hate to be rid of it.

    I'm not sure about natively within Android, or when that functionality may have been removed. But, the Google app & Assistant functionality has options to set Reminders based on Time or a Place. You could set a Reminder with Assistant yo go off at a certain location on a map.

    Or you can just use Tasker or Locale. Problem is GPS-based locations are only accurate to like 50-100M, so wifi triggers might be better.

    Moto was the first one to have this baked into their phones, IIRC the RAZ'R was the first.
