Let Bixby type for you

Phone on table displaying Bixby Voice settings

Bixby is a typing machine. Not only can it send texts, it can also type out just about anything, whether you are using Messages, Samsung Notes, or Samsung Internet. All you have to do is turn on the Dictate feature.

Turn on Bixby dictation

If you need to jot down some quick notes but you're a slow typist, just have Bixby do it for you.

Depending on your settings, open Bixby by pressing and holding either the Bixby or Side key. If needed, tap the House icon to be taken to the Assistant Home page. Tap Menu (the three horizonal lines), and then tap the Settings icon. Swipe to and tap the switch next to Bixby dictation to turn it on.

To use dictation, open an app that uses a keyboard, such as Messages. Open the Samsung keyboard, and then press and hold the Bixby or Side key. While you're holding it, say what you want Bixby to type. When you're done, release the Bixby key.
