Samsung Galaxy S8 How to Start up Bixby Through Gestures

After a long time of waiting, Samsung decided to finally launch its highly anticipated Galaxy S8 smartphone flagship.The South Korean tech giant did everything in its power to make the smartphone near flawless and to equip it with premium hardware parts alongside innovative features. The reason why the tech giant is putting so much attention into Galaxy S8 is because it represents the best Samsung has to offer and also because Samsung needs to redeem itself after last year’s Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.


In order to make sure that Galaxy S8 is going to reign supreme on the smartphone market, Samsung decided to equip it with its own virtual assistant that’s been named Bixby. Samsung prides itself with the fact that its flagship smartphone is finally up to par with the likes of Apple’s Siri and Google’s Assistant. In fact, Samsung is so proud of this feature that it installed a special physical button for it.

To Samsung’s surprise, the addition of the physical Bixby button is not being so well received by fans. According to surveys, smartphone owners are not that keen on using personal assistants since they don’t want people around them to hear them speaking to their smartphone therefore making the Bixby button practically useless.

All in one Gesture

Fortunately, there is a large number of third party apps which allow Galaxy S8 owners to start up their app through gestures. For example, the All in one Gesture app is able of supporting custom hardware keys such as the Bixby button. The only thing that Galaxy S8 owners are required to do is to set up their profile settings and to enable Accessibility Service for All in one Gesture.
