    Hi!

    I'm trying to create a shortcut on Android 9 to make my wife's phone ring. But in the device selection dialog only my devices are shown (her phone appears in the shared devices section).

    Is this only possible for non-shared devices or am I missing something?

    Cheers!

    Hi there. Do you mean when using Join Actions?

    Here is what I'm doing:

    - Long press on the home screen
    - select add widget
    - select join -> build-in action
    - click "select devices"
    -> no shared devices are shown

    I originally tried to create a shortcut with Aris Launcher which has a different workflow, but the default launcher (Quickstep) shows the same behavior.

    Oh yeah, sorry, I see what you mean. Unfortunately at this time the actions don't support shared devices, you're right.
