Linked Places: New feature?

Is anyone using this feature?
Has anyone added “locations” (for instance work or school to trigger automations)?

I just stumbled across this today.

Are we talking about the ‘Linked places’? They’ve been on Samsung Galaxy devices for a quite a while but I wasn’t aware they’d expanded their reach.

They are implemented as components of the presence device, sadly without useful labels on them. They were presence only even when the main component did occupancy too.

I haven’t used them much as I’ve found they highlight just how useful it would be to have a presence only SmartThings app.

Tried to create a Linked Place and use it in an automation but was advised that “You can only use Linked Places if all the members you selected are using Galaxy devices

We are an IOS family and would be grateful for advice on (a) when the discrimination will end; and (b) whether there is a work around that enables automations to be triggered upon arrival at Linked Places
