Create quick commands with Bixby

Have you ever wanted everything done in an instant, where just saying one phrase or word would execute multiple commands at once? That dream is now a reality because Bixby has preset and custom quick commands. Your wish is now Bixby's quick command.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by software version and phone model. On the Note10, you can open Bixby Assisant Home by double pressing the Bixby key, telling Bixby to "Open Bixby," or by remapping the Side key.

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?

Launch Bixby using either the Bixby or Side key. Tap More Options, and then tap Quick commands. To add a recommended quick command, tap one of the categories, such as Productivity. Select your desired command and then change the settings as needed. When you're done, tap Save. You can add a total of 50 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.

Launch Bixby using either the Bixby or Side key. Tap More Options, tap Quick commands, and then tap My commands. Here you will see a list of Quick Commands that are already loaded into Bixby.

To create your own custom command, tap Add (the plus icon). Enter a phrase that will activate the quick command, such as “It's too dark.” Then, tap Add a command and use the available options to choose your desired actions. For example, you can make the command “Turn on flashlight.” When you are finished, tap Save.

Now, whenever you tell Bixby "It's too dark," Bixby will automatically turn on the flashlight.

Use your Bixby quick commands

Now that you have a whole bunch of Quick Commands added, you can start using them.

To execute your Quick Command, open Bixby or call it using Voice wake-up. Then, say the command words associated with the quick command you want to use. Bixby will complete all commands related to the quick command.

If the recipient opens the message and touches the link, it will automatically cue the quick command on their phone if Bixby is installed on their Galaxy phone.
