How do I use the different features in Air command on my Galaxy Note8?
You’re flipping through that new fashion magazine and see the most beautiful dress. Snatch it up quick with Bixby Vision on your S Pen. You can find styles and even buy them today if available on Amazon. That’s just one of the features you have access to with Air command.

You can thank us later when you’re rocking that new dress.
