You can add a total of 50 Quick commands for Bixby to follow.
Add a Recommended Quick Command
Quick Commands sound amazing, but you aren't sure where to start. Why not try out one of the Recommended Quick Commands?
Press the Bixby key to open Bixby Assistant Home. Touch More Options and then touch Quick commands. To add a Recommended Quick Command, touch one of the categories, such as Productivity. Touch your desired command and then change the settings as needed. When you're done, touch Save.
Or, to add a Recommended command without making any changes, simply touch the Plus icon next to it to add it to your Quick Commands.
Create a Custom Quick Command
If the Recommended commands don't work for you, don't worry. You can create your own custom commands for Bixby to follow.
Press the Bixby key to open Bixby Assistant Home. Touch More Options and then touch Quick commands. To create your custom Quick Commands, touch My commands. Here you will see a list of Quick Commands that are already loaded into Bixby.
To create your own custom command, touch Add (the plus icon). Enter a phrase that will activate the Quick command, such as “It's too dark.” Then, touch Add a command and use the available options to choose your desired options. For example, you can make the command “Turn on flashlight.” Next, touch Save.
Now, whenever you tell Bixby "It's too dark," Bixby will automatically turn on the flashlight.
Use Bixby Command
Now that you have a whole bunch of Quick Commands added, you can start using them.
