What is Bixby Voice?

To use Bixby Voice:

• Your device must be connected to a Wi-Fi or mobile network

2. Tap Next

5. Read and agree to the terms and conditions and tap NEXT. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the Bixby Voice setup


Speak to Bixby when the conversation window appears. Bixby Voice recognizes your voice commands more accurately if you speak according to standard language conventions. Speak clearly so that Bixby can understand you correctly.

Bixby may not recognize your speech correctly if:

• Several people speak at once

• You speak in a noisy environment

• You speak too softly or too far away from the microphone
