Make the Most Out of Bixby With These Tips and Tricks

by John Martin Engineer

Launched in April 2107, Bixby is Samsung’s own voice assistant that is found in its smartphones. While Bixby has been new to the scene which is dominated by the likes of Google Assistant, Siri and Alexa, the dedicated voice assistant has evolved to learn lots of new features in its latest iterations. Bixby has a slew of features that can utilise the smartphone’s rich resources. Bixby is far from achieving the complexity of Google assistant, however, it can come in handy for all Samsung users as more features get added to Bixby with every update. Here are a few tips and tricks for Bixby.


§  Enhanced Voice recognition

Bixby uses a set of multiple microphones by analysing your voice and training itself to recognise only your voice in a group of many. This can be enabled by going into the Bixby home page, swiping right on your home screen, then tapping on the vertical three dots and selecting ‘Settings’. Find ‘Enhanced Voice Recognition’ and then select ‘Record Your Pronunciation’. Bixby will then ask you to pronounce a set of sentences which will enable Bixby to learn your voice.

§  Use Bixby as a translator

Bixby can translate things for you using the camera of your smartphone. Bixby uses its Bixby Vision feature that captures data from your camera and can offer translation in just a few seconds. This feature can be used by opening your camera and selecting the text on the screen. After selecting the text, tap on the ‘Translate’ button which will easily translate the text for you.

§  Extract text from pictures

In a similar fashion of using the translate feature, you can capture the text by selecting the ‘Extract’ button. This will allow you to get a text from your images easily. This is great for taking down notes or keeping track of bills.

§  Post photos to social media

Bixby can now directly post your pictures from the gallery to any social media platform. You can use the command ‘Hi Bixby, post my last photo on Instagram’ and post your picture directly to Instagram. This can be used for various social media platforms. One can also use this feature when viewing any picture in the gallery.

§  Voice-type messages

Following the suit of Google assistant, Bixby can convert your voice into text by simply dictating your message. For taking advantage of this feature, first, you will have to enable the ‘Dictation on Keyboard’ which can be found by going to the Bixby homepage, then clicking the three dots and going into ‘Settings’. Once this feature is enabled, one can press the Bixby button on their phone to dictate your message while on the typing screen.
