Manage your day with Bixby reminders

Managing your day in the Reminders app using Bixby app

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.

  1. Depending on your settings, press and hold the Bixby or Side key, and then tell Bixby to set a reminder. Type in your reminder, and then tap the arrow icon to save it.

  2. Next, press and hold the Bixby or Side key again, and then ask Bixby to open the Reminder app. You can say "Hi Bixby, open the Reminder app." The app will open and you'll see your current and past reminders.

  3. In the Reminder app, you can change a reminder's details. Select your desired reminder, and then tap Edit. You can change the title, time, repeat details, place, and category.

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

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 depending on your settings, and say “Hi Bixby, open the Reminder app.” 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.”

You can even set repeating reminders like "Remind me to file my TPS report at 4 p.m. every Friday," so you'll never miss a deadline.

Complete or delete reminders

Bixby loves creating Reminders, but it can’t complete or delete them by itself. You'll need to go into the Reminder app to remove your reminders.

To complete a reminder, navigate to and open the Reminder app. Then, touch and hold the reminder you want to complete. Tap Complete, and the reminder will be removed from your list. You can also complete a reminder by tapping the circle to the left of the reminder.

To delete a reminder, touch and hold the reminder, and then tap Delete. Tap Move to Trash to confirm.
