How do I use hand gestures to control my Samsung Smart TV?

Last Update Date : Jul 05. 2019

Gesture control allows you to control the TV with hand motions. To use gesture control follow these steps:


● Gesture controls are not support by all Samsung TVs. Please refer your user manual to check availability of this feature.

● Gesture controls are not available all the time. Some Apps do not support gesture controls. If gesture controls are unavailable you will be required to use your TV remote.

1 Confirm that the gesture controls are enabled in the TV and that the camera is set for your viewing area.
2 Raise your hand and hold it up for about 2 seconds.
3 Wave at the TV.

4 If gesture controls have been activated a pointer will appear on the TV and a gesture control command bar will appear at the bottom of the TV display with available commands. Please note that if the command bar and pointer do not appear then please return to Step 1.

5 Use your hand to guide the pointer around the TV.

Tip: By holding your hand closed you can "Run" the volume or channel commands on the TV, it is the same as holding down the volume or channel button.
6 With the pointer hovering over the object you would like to select, close your hand to select.
Hover the pointer
