Talk to Your Family Hub Refrigerator

Did you ever think the day would come when you could talk to your refrigerator, and it would actually listen? With Family Hub's voice interaction, you can ask to see the contents of your fridge or even start playing music without lifting a finger!

Change the Wake Word

To talk to Family Hub, you will need to wake it up with a command. Learn how to change the Wake Word below.

To change the Wake Word, touch Settings > Voice > Wake Word. You can choose between "Hi, Samsung" and "Bixby." To save your selection, touch Change. Keep in mind, Family Hub is going to remember the Wake Word and you will need to say it correctly to wake up Family Hub.

Note: Although Family Hub can respond to the wake word “Bixby”, only certain voice commands can be understood. Family Hub will not understand natural speech commands. A list of suggested commands can be found by touching Help on the Voice Interaction screen.

Talk to Family Hub

There are two quick steps for using voice interaction on Family Hub. To use voice interaction, say the Wake Word and then the command. Examples of frequently used commands are listed below.

Note: If Family Hub does not recognize the Wake Word, it's probably having a hard time hearing you. Say the Wake Word or commands loud and clear into the microphone located above Family Hub.

  • "Open (Name of an App)."
    For example, "Open Internet."

  • "Show me what's inside."

  • "What's the weather like?"

  • For more details and examples, visit our Family Hub Simulator.
