Manage your day with Bixby reminders

In this fast-paced society, reminders are an absolute necessity. The good news is that Bixby takes reminders to another level by letting you set reminders with your voice. You can even add reminders to some of your most-used apps, like Phone or Messages.

Access Bixby Reminder

Reminder is an awesome and handy feature, but it may seem hidden if you don’t look closely. Once you enable it, it'll be right on your Apps screen.

Press and hold the Bixby key and tell Bixby to set a reminder. Type in your reminder, and then tap Save. Next, tap More in Reminder app. The Reminder app will open and add a shortcut to your apps. With the reminder app open, you can edit your reminder details including the strength of the reminder alert by selecting light, medium, or stong.

Note: Reminders that are set to light will not show an alert on the screen.

You can also access Reminders by navigating to Settings, and then tapping Apps. Search for and tap Reminder, tap the Settings icon, and then tap the switch next to the add Reminder icon.

Create reminders with Bixby

When you're knee-deep in a hectic day you may not remember to hit every errand on your list. Just have Bixby set a reminder so you won't forget next time.

Press and hold the Bixby or Side key and say, “Create a reminder.” Bixby will instantly open the Reminder app, where you can enter the information manually.

Or, you can tell Bixby the exact task and time for the reminder. For example, you could say, “Remind me to go grocery shopping at 5 p.m.”

Delete reminders

Bixby loves creating Reminders, but it can’t delete them. No worries, deleting reminders is as easy as ABC.

Navigate to and open the Reminder app. Then, touch and hold the reminder you want to remove. Tap Delete, and then tap Delete again to confirm.

Add Bixby reminders to apps

Ever get a call or a message when you’re super busy, and then accidentally forget about it later? Don’t sweat it. Bixby Reminder is built into certain apps, like Phone and Messages, so you won't ever forget something important again.

Just navigate to your favorite apps, and then look for the Reminder icon or Send to Reminder.

Here are the different apps that can use Bixby Reminder and how to create a Reminder for them:

Reminder app listed as a Share option
  • Phone: You can create a reminder when you reject a call, so you can call them back. You will see the reminder an hour later. When receiving a call, swipe up on Send message. Tap Add reminder, and then select a message you would like to send. A reminder will be automatically saved.

  • Messages: Never forget to reply to that text message. Navigate to Messages, and then touch and hold your desired message. Tap Send to Reminder; this option may only appear if you have a SIM card inserted. Once you're done, the reminder will go off an hour later.

    If you are using a third-party messaging app, touch and hold the desired message. Then, tap Share at the top of the screen, and select Reminder from the list of sharing options.

  • Videos: You can use Reminders to save your place in a long video and start off where you paused it. In Gallery, open and play a desired video. Pause the video in the desired location, and then tap More options (the three vertical dots). Tap Send to Reminder and you will see the reminder an hour later.

    Note: You may need to tap Play video first before the Reminder option appears.

  • Other Apps: You can also save text and images to Reminder by using the Share option in apps, such as Internet and Gallery. Just select the desired content, tap Share, and then select Reminder from the list of sharing options.
