FAQ: Did we lose the ability to add custom smartapps after the app update of June 2021?

Yes, our engineering team is working on that.

No problem, as you can use one of the SmartApp instances, there’s no need for an Android device.

Perfect! I appreciate your help!

Please let me know if you need me to try anything.


It’s been almost a month, so I thought I would follow-up. I still don’t see my installed SmartApp displayed within the SmartThings iOS app.

Is this something that is still being worked on? Do you need me to try anything?


Any idea where the Add Smart App went in the new App? I just have Add scene and Add routine. I have developer mode activated. I’m on Android


thank you very much

Sorry, don’t want to dig up an old thread, but I enabled developer mode, I can see it in settings, but I don’t have any way to add a SmartApp… I have gone through Automations > + > Add Routine but there is no “Add a SmartApp”. What am I missing? Is this feature gone for real now?

There’s an option at the bottom called “Discovery”. When you enter there, you need to scroll up the page to see the custom SmartApps.

Add Routine, and select Discover tab

Where are these apps?

I’ve finally found this thread, activated the developer account settings and found the Discover tab for Automations in the Smartthings app.

I have a published my app, everything else seems to be fine.

Exactly solved my issue with Smartapps not populating (Verisure, garage control etc).

I got everything to work and I’m in Developer mode finally, however I don’t see ability to add Smart Apps in my device. My old smart apps appear, but I can’t add any new ones. Has this been removed?

click on the + in the upper right of the screen, select Add Routine, tap on the Discover tab, then scroll down to see if they are listed


I am so glad I found this. And this is so insanely ridiculous how buried it is! Thank you!
