When we put the mobile to charge, it can be easy to miss when it has finished charging, having to go check it from time to time. A curious solution is to have the mobile tell you out loud that it has been fully charged , with the use of the Automate automation application .
With this application, we will create an automation whereby as soon as the mobile is fully loaded , the message you want will be played. It is something that for now is not possible to do with Google Assistant routines or with IFTTT .
Have the mobile tell you when it has been charged
First of all, you are going to need the Automate automation application, free (with in-app purchases) and much more complex and powerful than IFTTT. The bad news is that it is not available in Spanish, although we will not have to deal with it much beyond configuring our set of rules and actions.

Automate can be a bit overwhelming at first, although it all makes sense once you start to understand what is what. It is an application that instead of limiting itself to linear sets of conditions and actions, it 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 initial one.

Hit the floating + button to create the first project, which starts with a start node. Press the + button again to add the first block. Should you choose Battery level? , within the Battery & power category . Tap on this node after adding it to the panel and change its value from Minimum level to 100%.
Back in the project overview, link from GO of Flow begining to IN of When battery level , drawing a line with your finger, which will link both blocks . We already have the condition, but we lack the action that will take place.
Hit the floating + button and add the Speak block inside Camera & Sound . Tap on it to access its parameters and enter the text you want to be played in the Message section . It is recommended that you 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 from the YES of When battery level to the 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 automation to change its name , although this is totally optional. To do this, you must press the button on the pencil and then choose the button for the label. Hit Save .
Now the only thing left is to start the automation , which will leave Automate aware of changes in the battery level of the mobile. Just below the buttons you can see the log with the progress of the conditions and actions.
The only thing left is to wait for the battery to reach 100%, or the amount that 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 must leave the mobile unlocked so that the application can perform the action. If not, it will run as soon as you unlock it.
