Using Bixby Text Call

It’s important to note that Bixby Text Call is designed for incoming calls, allowing users to read messages during the call without hearing the conversation. The caller, on the other hand, will hear an automated voice.

How to Bixby Text Call
  1. After enabling the feature, users will see “Bixby Text Call” when they receive a call. Tap it and swipe up on the green icon to initiate a Bixby Text Call.
  2. Bixby will inform the caller about the automated voice and ask for their identity and the reason for the call.
  3. As the caller speaks, their words will be transcribed on the screen.
  4. Users can respond with a quick reply or type a message and tap Send. Bixby will read the response to the caller.
  5. If a voice call is preferred, users can tap “Voice call” at the top of the screen.
  6. To end the call, users can tap “End call” at the top.
