Samsung could have been called either a completionist or an incredible tale of a tech firm that would create a ball of fire if someone heard them about it. Samsung, India’s eminent smartphone and consumer electronics hawker, has revealed the introduction of the Bixby Text Call functionality to a select collection of smartphone models in the Indian market.
The Bixby Text Call feature is one of the most touted features that users of Samsung could ever get; the new tiles can grant Bixby the capacity to field and manage incoming calls seamlessly. Bixby’s automated vocal interface immediately addresses incoming calls, providing features to users with the convenience of initiating text-based interactions using a virtual keyboard or opting for a pre-determined response.
In this context, Bixby scrupulously conveys the text messages to the caller. Furthermore, Bixby preserves these textual conversations for posterior reference.
To activate the Bixby Text Call feature on a compatible device, users should punctiliously follow these steps:
- Launch the Phone application, locate and engage the “More Options” menu represented by three vertical dots, and subsequently access the “Settings” section.
- Within the “Settings,” navigate to the “Bixby Text Call” menu and toggle the feature into the “on” position. In cases where the requisite language package is not already installed, users will be prompted to initiate the download of the requisite language package. This can be accomplished by selecting “Download” and subsequently proceeding to the Galaxy Store to finalize the installation of the language package.
- Once the Bixby Text Call feature has been enabled, users can customize its settings, encompassing language preferences and vocal characteristics. Additionally, users may introduce novel quick-response templates or modify existing ones for Bixby text-based calls.
For rich deployment of the Bixby Text Call feature, it’s essential to acknowledge that this functionality excludes incoming calls. While auditory communication remains inaccessible, the capacity to peruse incoming messages prevails, with the caller being exposed solely to Bixby’s automated vocal interface.
Here’s a comprehensive guide for utilizing Bixby Text Call:
- Upon activating the feature, the “Bixby Text Call” option becomes available when an incoming call is received. By selecting this option, users can initiate a Bixby text-based call by swiping upwards on the prominently displayed green icon.
- Bixby will promptly inform the caller of the utilization of an automated vocal interface, further inquiring about the caller’s identity and the purpose of their call.
- As the caller commences speaking, the user will witness the real-time transcription of their response on the screen.
- Responding to the caller is facilitated by selecting a predefined quick response from the options displayed at the base of the screen or by manually entering the desired message. After doing so, tapping “Send” will trigger Bixby to articulate the user’s response to the caller.
- Should the user opt to switch from Bixby’s text-based call to a traditional voice call, they can do so by selecting the “Voice Call” option at the summit of the screen.
- Concluding the conversation is as straightforward as tapping “End Call” at the top of the screen.
- Accessing archived logs of Bixby text call conversations is achieved through the following steps:
- Open the Phone application and navigate to the “Recents” tab.
- Calls conducted through the Bixby Text Call feature will be restricted with a speech bubble icon. Users can select a ring bearing this symbol and then access the “Info” icon, denoted by the letter “i.”
- Subsequently, a screen will present itself, featuring the speech bubble icon linked to the call. This facilitates the viewing of the complete call transcript.
For users seeking to remove a transcript, they can conveniently execute this action by tapping “Delete” in the upper-right corner.
