How do I use the Glance feature with the S Pen on the Galaxy Note8?

The Glance feature helps you to switch between apps easily.

 

For example, you can use Glance to reduce a text message app to a thumbnail, open your calendar app, then hover the S Pen over the thumbnail to view the text message in full screen to remind yourself of the details.

 

You can use this feature for many apps, but for this example we will demonstrate how to use Glance to view a text message and enter a phone number.

1 While using the app you want to refer to, choose the Air Command icon

The Glance app will now appear as a thumbnail in the bottom-right of your screen.
