Like all other recent phones, the new Note10 also comes with your favorite personal assistant: Bixby. All you have to do is go through a quick setup, and soon your assistant will be ready to start working. And don’t worry if there’s no Bixby key - you can access Bixby using the new Side key.

Set up and use Bixby Voice

The Bixby Voice setup process was designed to be fast and easy. In less than a minute, you can start talking about setting up some reminders.

To set up Bixby Voice, press and hold the Side key, and then tap the Next icon. Review the terms, and select I have read and agree to all of the above. Tap Skip, and then tap the Done icon to leave the setup and continue to Bixby Voice.

Now, Bixby will listen to your commands. Just press and hold the Side key whenever you want to talk to Bixby.

Map and access Bixby Voice

By default, pressing and holding the Side key will wake up Bixby on your Note10. But you can also customize the Side key, so Bixby wakes up whenever you double press it. Or, you can simply access Bixby from Bixby Home. Either way, check out our tutorial while you’re there.

To customize the Side key, open Settings, and then search for and select Side key. Tap Side key again, and then choose Open Bixby under Double press. Now, you can open Bixby Voice by double tapping the Side key.

You can also access Bixby Voice from Bixby Home. To do this, swipe right from the Home screen to open Bixby Home. Then, swipe to and tap Learn more on the Bixby Voice card.
