What is Air Command?

 The Air Command feature has been around with previous Galaxy Note models. This is the central area where the S-Pen can be utilised at its best.

How do I access Air Command?

Simply pull the S-Pen out of your Samsung Galaxy Note when your device is not in idle mode. If the S-Pen is already out of your device, simply tap on the floating S-Pen icon.

Please Note: Steps and screenshots were created from the Galaxy Note8 running Android OS Version 7.0+ (Nougat).
