How to utilise Bixby on Samsung Galaxy Watch?

Last Update Date : Oct 01. 2018

What is Bixby?

Bixby is a voice service that you can use the Galaxy Watch more conveniently. You can talk to Bixby to launch a function or provide you with information.

• This app may not be available depending on the region

• Make sure the Galaxy Watch’s microphone is not obstructed when you are speaking into it

• To use Bixby, your Mobile Device must be connected to a Wi-Fi or mobile network

How to launch Bixby?

• Launching with the Home key: When you quickly press the Home key twice, Bixby will launch

• Launching by voice: You can launch Bixby using your own voice wake-up command. You can only use this feature
when your Galaxy Watch’s screen is turned on. To set the voice wake-up command, on the Apps screen, tap Bixby icon >    More option (3 vertical dots) > Voice wakeup

How to use Bixby?

1 Quickly press the Home key twice. Alternatively, say Hi Bixby. You can also launch Bixby by tapping Bixby icon on the Apps screen. The Galaxy Watch begins voice recognition
2 Say a voice command. If the Galaxy Watch recognizes the command, the Galaxy Watch will perform the corresponding action with voice feedback. To repeat a voice command or say a different command, tap Bixby icon

Tips for better voice recognition

• Speak clearly

• Speak in quiet places

• Do not use offensive or slang words

• Avoid speaking in dialectal accents

The Galaxy Watch may not recognise your commands or may perform unwanted commands depending on your surroundings or how you speak.

How to set the language?

On the Apps screen, tap Bixby icon > More option (3 vertical dots) > rotate the bezel > tap Language > select a language.

The selected language is applied to Bixby only, not to the language displayed on the Galaxy Watch.
