Let us first talk about what is tasker?
In simple words it can be quoted that tasker is called as essence of android. Android is all about customising user experience and automating your task which is performed on your phone.
Basically tasker is also an automation application which is used for creating task.
In tasker what exactly you do is, you create a list of tasks which you want to be executed according your requirements and depending upon variety of contexts.
Not only you have to specify tasks or actions but you also need to mention when to perform task. In simple words, consider you want to perform three tasks which are A, B and C. Along with tasks you will specify ,tasks A, B and C to be executed when X and/or Y will happen.
Actions which you will specify using tasker can be anything.
It can be a very simple task or it can be something complex. Let’s talk about few examples such turning on/off Bluetooth or something complicated such as sending media and also controlling commands through third party plugins available.
Now are you wondering how it works?
Then let me tell you about tasker.
The very first thing which is important is to give a name to your task.
Name can be anything which you like to add.
Then once you are clear with finalising your task you need to tell what action you want each task to perform. Now configure all actions and to execute all tasks by playing it or adding it to the profile.
Every task will be opened at a particular instant of time.
