Samsung India has rolled out the Bixby Text Call feature, a nifty addition that lets your phone’s AI assistant, Bixby, handle calls by converting your typed responses into speech. Initially launched earlier this year, it’s now making its way to a wider range of Samsung devices, but for now, it only chats in English.
Here’s the lowdown on Bixby Text Call: Imagine you’re in a meeting or a noisy cafe and can’t take a call. With this feature, Bixby steps in to answer for you. The caller hears Bixby’s voice, not yours, and you get to read what they’re saying in real time, like subtitles in a movie. You can then type out a reply, and Bixby will speak it out to the caller. It’s like texting but through a phone call.
How to set up Bixby Text Call?
- Step 1: Dive into the Phone app, hit the three dots for More Options, and tap into Settings.
- Step 2: Find Bixby Text Call, switch it on, and download the language pack if needed.
- Step 3: Tweak the settings to your liking, choosing Bixby’s voice and setting up quick responses for common questions.
How to use Bixby Text Call?
- Step 1: Hit the Bixby Text Call button and swipe the green icon up.
- Step 2: Bixby will ask the caller to spill the beans on who they are and why they’re calling.
- Step 3: You’ll see their response in text form.
- Step 4: Shoot back a quick response or type out a custom message and hit Send.
- Step 5: Want to switch to a regular call? Just tap “Voice call.”
- Step 6: Done chatting? Tap “End call” to wrap it up.
Currently, Bixby Text Call is compatible with a range of Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy Fold and Flip series, the S and Note series, and select A series models. So, if you’re rocking a recent Samsung device, you might just have a new way to handle calls without ever having to speak a word.
