“Used to do” and “used to doing” are two different forms of the phrase "used to" and are used to talk about past habits or actions that were common or regular but are no longer the case.

Inaccurate information! See next post. (Admin)

Not true.

“Used to do” is about the past.

“Used to doing” can be about past, present or future.
