Keep track of what's in your smart fridge with Family Hub

Closeup of the View Inside App on Family Hub

The Family Hub panel's View Inside feature is perfect for those times when you're heading home, but don't remember if you have everything you need for dinner... how are we looking on milk? It also helps track the expiration dates on food items in and outside of the refrigerator. You can even use Bixby to assist with your food management.

Manage your Food List with with View Inside

Within the View Inside app, there is a Food List section that you can use to track items in your fridge or pantry. You can enter new items using the Family Hub mobile app on your phone or directly on the Family Hub panel itself. To quickly access View Inside on your refrigerator, swipe down with two fingers from the top of the screen.

After you've added food items, you can set an expiration date for them, so you know when things are starting to go bad. You can also send stored items to your shopping list for the next time you go to the grocery store. Just remember that when you remove items physically, they also need to be removed from the Food List.

For more details, tap Settings, and then tap Help & Contact Us. Tap Online Manual, and then tap Menu (the three horizontal lines) in the upper left corner. Tap Food Management, and then tap View Inside.

Use Bixby on the Family Hub

If you want to manage your food list but it's a hassle, you can talk to Bixby on the Family Hub. Just go to your fridge, and tap the Bixby icon. You can also say "Hi Bixby." Once the Bixby icon appears, you can say a command to Bixby.

Here are some examples of commands you can say to Bixby:

  • "Hi Bixby, find recipes with ingredients that are expiring soon."

  • "Hi Bixby, add expired items from View Inside to Shopping List."

  • "Hi Bixby, do I have (fill in the blank with a food item)?"

  • "Hi Bixby, add chicken to my Shopping List."

For a full list of Bixby commands that work with View Inside, taps Apps, and then tap Explore Bixby. From there, tap View Inside.

Use your food list with Meal Planner

The Meal Planner app provides you with a meal calendar, so you can plan your dinners ahead of time. You can easily find meals based on the items you have saved in your Food List. It also includes recipes from the Smart Recipes app to make finding a great meal even easier.

From the Family Hub panel, tap Apps, and then tap Meal Planner. Select a future date on the calendar, and then tap Select a Meal. A list of recommended recipes will appear. Tap Ingredients from Your Food List and select your desired items to pull up recipes based on your Food List. When you've found a recipe you like, tap Add. The recipe will now appear in Meal Planner under the designated date.

You can also do the opposite in the Smart Recipes app! If you're browsing recipes and see something you like, you can send it to Meal Planner.

On the go with Family Hub

Anything you can do in View Inside on Family Hub, you can do in the Family Hub mobile app, and vice versa. Everything gets synchronized in real time.

This means you can look inside your fridge while you're away, see memos that family members have left, check and update expiration dates, and add or remove food.
