Make it simpler with Quick commands


Take a load off with a Quick Command. Bixby carries out multiple tasks in a specific order upon hearing a trigger you've set up. For example, start your day fresh by having Bixby read aloud your messages, remind you of the day's schedule, and start your office playlist – all with a "good morning".

* Custom Quick commands must be created before use.
