How Do I use Hands-free Mode on my Samsung Galaxy S? LTE?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

Hands- Free Mode

When Hands-free mode is turned on, the device will read out incoming callers, message senders, alarms, and schedule information, as well as give you the opportunity to answer a call using Air Gestures™.

To turn on Hands-free mode, from the Home screen, touch Menu 1 > Settings 2 > My device 3 > Hands-free mode 4 . Touch the slider 5 to turn Hands-free mode on 6 . Touch OK on the dialog box about turning off S Voice™ Hands-free.

To quickly turn Hands-free mode off and on, with two fingers slightly apart, swipe from the top of the screen to the bottom to access the Quick Panel. Touch the icon for Hands-free mode. When the feature is on, the icon will be green.

The following options are available:

Incoming call: When an incoming call is received, read out the caller's information.

Messages: When a new text or multimedia message arrives, read out the sender's information.

Alarm: When the alarm sounds, read out the alarm information.

Calendar event info: When the calendar event alarm sounds, read out the calendar information.

NOTE: Air Gestures will be turned on, and the volume will be turned on to the minimum level if it was previously muted or set to vibrate.
