Have Bixby play music on your phone

Phone displaying Spotify playlist

Bixby Voice is your preferred AI assistant because it's always helping you out. And did you know that it can also double as a DJ? Just say a voice command and Bixby will start playing all of your favorite music and songs.

Play music with Bixby (One UI)

On the One UI, Bixby and Spotify are linked together! And that means when you say something like, "Play a song" or "Play jazz music," Spotify will automatically come up.

First, to link Bixby to your Spotify account, make sure you have Spotify installed. Press and hold the Bixby key to call Bixby, and then say "Play music." You will be prompted to sign into your Spotify account. Once you do, Bixby and Spotify will be officially linked.

If you prefer Samsung Music or Play Music, Bixby still works with them. When you're in your desired app, just say, "play," "pause," or "skip to next song," and Bixby will perform the command. However, when you give Bixby a command with a specific song title, artist, or genre, Spotify will automatically open, even if you have another music app opened.

Play music with Bixby (Oreo OS)

If your hands aren't free but you want to listen to some music, let Bixby handle it for you.

When you say "Play a song," Bixby automatically will open Google Play Music and bring up your music library. From there, you can tell Bixby to play a specific song, such as "Over the Horizon." Or, you can have Bixby start, pause, or skip to the next song.

These commands will also work with Samsung Music. Just open the app, and tell Bixby what songs you want to hear or what action you'd like performed.
