If you have a Samsung phone or tablet, you have a choice of voice assistants because it also includes Google Assistant

What to know about Bixby Home

There are several ways to access Bixby. You can summon the service by saying “Hi, Bixby,” or you can open the Bixby Home page. Bixby Home gives you access to many common Bixby commands and offers tips, tutorials, and advice for getting the most out of Bixby. 

How to open Bixby Home

You can open Bixby Home by pressing the Bixby or side button, depending which button your Samsung device includes. Both buttons are located on the side of the device under the volume control, but each works slightly differently by default: To open Bixby Home using the Bixby button, press the button once. To open Bixby Home with the side button, double-press the button. You can also reconfigure these options; see our guide to Bixby for details.

Recently, Samsung has reduced the importance of the Bixby Home page and generally the only way to reach it is via one of these buttons. If you have an older device, though, you might be able to open the Bixby Home page by swiping to the left from your device’s Home page. Here’s how to turn Bixby Home on or off:

1. Tap and hold any blank part of the home screen. 

2. Swipe to the right until you see the Bixby Home page. If the page to the left of home is Samsung Free, it has replaced Bixby Home and isn’t available on your device.
