Using Bixby On A Samsung Remote Control.

Last Update date : Oct 21. 2020

A feature that has been introduced to our 2019 Samsung TV range is the ability to use Bixby via the remote control.


Your Samsung remote control has 2 microphones. One for near field and the other for far field.


Near Field Mic:

  • It is triggered by pressing the mic () button near the top of the remote.
  • When pressed for a short amount of time, the Bixby Menu is selected.
  • When pressed for a long time, the near field voice recognition is triggered.

Far Field Mic:

Samsung remote control
  • It is triggered by sound around the remote.
  • When you say “Hi Bixby” within 1.5 metres from the remote, Bixby will start.
  • When the remote hears “Hi Bixby”, the LED at the top of the remote will flash red. 


  • Make sure the remote is positioned properly with the buttons facing up.
  • Do not cover the mic with blankets or clothes.
