How Do I use hand gestures to control my Samsung Smart TV?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

How do I use hand gestures to control my Samsung Smart TV?



1. Confirm that the gesture controls are enabled in the TV and that the camera is set for your viewing area.

2. Raise your hand and hold it up for about two seconds.


3. Wave at the TV.



4. If gesture controls have been activated a pointer will appear on the TV and a gesture control command bar will appear at the bottom of the TV, displaying the available commands.



5. Use your hand to guide the pointer around the TV.

6. With the pointer hovering over the object you would like to select, close your hand to select it.


NOTE: by holding your hand closed you can "run" the volume or channel commands on the TV (this is the same as holding down the volume or channel button).
