Bixby - How do I use my Samsung Galaxy S8+ (SM-G955W) in airplane mode (or flight mode)?

Airplane mode


Unless you haven't been on a plane in a decade or so, you know airline regulations require mobile devices to be turned off or set to Airplane mode during flights. Airplane mode disables all of your device's wireless communication functions with just one touch. This includes cellular service, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. However, while still in Airplane mode, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth can be enabled. This is supremely important for zoning out to your favorite playlist.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

1. From the Home screen, swipe up or down to access the Apps screen.

2. Touch Settings Parametres.
