How to Create Quick Commands for Samsung Bixby

Srivishnu Ramakrishnan

A detailed step by step guide on how to create quick commands for Samsung Bixby. After the S Voice, Samsung’s new devices Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ launched their own voice assistant called Bixby this year. Samsung Bixby has been met with overall negative reviews so far. One of the main reasons why it has received negative criticism is because Samsung kinda forced it on its users. It has many features that you will love eg- features, Bixby Voice, Bixby Vision, Bixby Home, and Bixby Reminder. But, being honest it has a lot of potentials and could give a tough fight to Google’s Assistant and Apple’s Siri in the future. It is very helpful in day to day life. The Quick Command feature gives you a way to add a command in Bixby and the command will take action what you say it to do. Here are some simple steps to add a Quick command in Bixby.

Step 4: Once the step no 3 is completed, Tap on “+ Add quick command”. Now simply Hold the Bixby button and say the command you want. When done just click on “Save”. Like we are setting up the command “I’m driving”.


Step 5: Once you click on save you will be reverted back to the Quick command menu. Now you can set the action you want to perform for that particular command. Click on “+ Add Bixby Command” you will see the options “Select from History” and “Search all commands”. Here you can add a command from the previously searched quires or just search for all commands and add the one you want by tapping on it. Like I have added the action to be performed “Open setting and Turn on Do Not Disturb Mode”.

  1. Bixby does not know a huge part of English speakers; most users will become frustrated and not using it. It’s a pity honestly.

    • Haven’t used it personally but I already see a lot of users getting frustrated. Also, people don’t like something being forced on them. Bixby is a beta product at best. It still has a long way to go. But, I did see a few videos featuring bixby, it has got some neat tricks under its sleeve. I see a lot of potential but let’s see what Samsung does with it.
