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 the Bixby has preset and custom Quick Commands. Your wish is now Bixby's Quick Commands.

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.

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.
