Use your Galaxy Buds or Gear IconX to control SmartThings devices
Sometimes, you don't have direct access to your phone - like when you're bicycling and it's not within reach. But did you know you can still control SmartThings devices in this situation? Yes, you can. Because if you have Galaxy Buds or Gear IconX, your phone's virtual assistant (or AI assistant) can control your devices by just listening to your voice!
Control your SmartThings devices
Simply, touch and hold the touchpad on the Samsung earbuds until your virtual assistant launches. Say your desired command to make your virtual assistant perform a task in SmartThings.
If you have not set a default virtual assistant, you will be prompted to select one. Select, and then tap Always or Just once.
Note: If you want your Samsung earbuds to access a virtual assistant while your phone screen is off, you will need to set one of the virtual assistants as default.
