Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e Gets A New Feature – Bixby Voice Assistant On Power Button
Activate Bixby Voice by pressing the power button
Bixby Voice support will soon be introduced to all Galaxy Tab S5e devices all around the world. For the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e Wi-Fi variant, T720XXU1ASG3 is the build number of the software while for Tab S5e LTE variant it is T725XXU1ASG3. The tablet does not feature a Bixby key, but Bixby Voice can be activated by long-pressing the power button.
Moreover, in order to enable the Power key for Bixby toggle, you need to go to the Quick Settings area in the notification panel by swiping down on your home screen. After that, it will work as perfect as it is supposed to. You can even set this from the Advanced menu found in Settings. Aside from that, you can also access Bixby Voice by creating a shortcut icon on the home screen.
The easiest way to activate Bixby, the voice assistant
If you find these setting difficult, you can always activate the voice assistant by saying, “Hi, Bixby.” You also get Message and Call continuity support if you own the LTE version of the tablet. However, when it comes to day to day use, the power button might activate the voice assistant more quickly in comparison to the voice command.
