Under my product page, I wish to have some products shown from the same category.

How can I achieve this in Magento 2 without having to manually set the related products?

  • Edited post with M2. @hewb75 - The point is for Magento to automatically show them by what category they are in rather than me adding related products for thousands of products.

Please try the below code in your product detail page template.

For Current product category ids

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$product = $objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\Registry')->registry('current_product');
$categories = $product->getCategoryIds(); /*will return category ids array*/


Load the product by category id

     $categoryId=" Take the id from your current product categories array"
        $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
        $category= $objectManager->get('Magento\Catalog\Model\CategoryFactory')->create()->load($categoryId);
        $collection = $objectManager->get('Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory')->create()
        $collection->addAttributeToFilter('visibility', \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Visibility::VISIBILITY_BOTH);
return $collection;

Hope it will help you!
