On Samsung devices, you can open Google Assistant using a few different methods. Here are a couple of common ways:

Method 1: Using Voice Command

  1. Wake up your device:
    • Ensure that your device is awake and the screen is on.
  2. Say “Hey Google” or “OK Google”:
    • You can activate Google Assistant by using the wake words “Hey Google” or “OK Google.”
  3. Ask your question or give a command:
    • Once Google Assistant is activated, you can ask it questions, give commands, or perform various tasks.

Method 2: Using a Gesture or Button Shortcut

  1. Swipe from the Bottom Corners:
    • On some Samsung devices, you can swipe from the bottom-left or bottom-right corner of the screen to open Google Assistant.
  2. Use the Navigation Buttons:
    • On certain Samsung phones, you may have a dedicated Bixby button. You can configure this button to open Google Assistant instead.
    • To do this, press and hold the Bixby button.
    • When Bixby opens, tap on the three horizontal lines (menu) in the top left.
    • Select “Settings” > “Voice wake-up” > and turn off Bixby voice.
  3. Use the Home Button (Older Models):
    • On some older Samsung devices, you could configure the home button to open Google Assistant.
    • Go to “Settings” > “Apps” > “Google” > “Set as default” > “Voice.”
    • After configuring this, a long press on the home button should activate Google Assistant.

Remember that the availability of certain features may vary depending on the model and software version of your Samsung device. If your device has the One UI interface, you may find additional options and gestures for accessing Google Assistant in the settings.
