    Hi
    I have a formula,where Autocast tell the time via Google Home everyhour via tasker,but this only work when my phone screen is active.
    How do i get this tasker to tell time,when even my phone screen is locked.

    Thanks

    Did you try taking both AutoCast and Tasker out of battery optimization on your phone?

    Hmm, wait, AutoCast should light up your screen to start casting. Does it not do that automatically?

    Hmm, that should not be an issue. Just to clarify, if you run the task to speak directly it does work?
