Does Genshin Impact auto-save?

Yes, Genshin Impact has an auto-save feature that allows players to start their game right from where they left off. You cannot save the game manually as the live servers do it for you. The feature is available on PC, mobile (Android & iOS), and PlayStation.

Auto-save in Genshin Impact applies to every in-game mechanic including open-world exploration, domains, and quests. If you abruptly quit the game during a quest, you’ll continue with the latest quest goal/interaction when you return. Similarly, you’ll find your character outside a domain if you quit while fighting in it.

Genshin Impact supports auto-save primarily owing to the gacha system that requires players to spend Primogems to unlock new characters and weapons. With the option to manually save progress, it wouldn’t be a surprise if players constantly keep rerolling in the hope of getting better units.
