Woman controlling Smart Monitor with voice control

Your new Smart Monitor wouldn’t be complete without Bixby’s handy voice control options and settings. If you’re ready to relax after a long day, just pick up your remote and ask Bixby to take care of things, whether you need to open some apps or enjoy a new TV series. You can also turn your phone into an extra remote control by using the SmartThings app.

Use Bixby to control your monitor

Bixby can be set up when you receive your Smart Monitor, or later on from the Settings menu. Once it’s ready to go, just give it your commands to access your monitor's different features.

To start using Bixby to navigate your monitor, press and hold the Voice Assistant button on your remote and then say your command. You can say things like “Open Netflix,” or “Play an action movie.”
