Samsung TV Voice Commands – Full List (Bixby, Google Home, Alexa)

Siri and Google Assistant are the best voice assistants and Alexa comes as a distant third. But when you are using a Samsung TV powered by Tizen, you have no other choice but to get used to Bixby.

Fortunately, you can also pair your Samsung TV to Alexa or Google Home and use Google Home Commands, and Alexa commands as well. If you do not find Bixby very user-friendly, thankfully there is also a way to disable Bixby on Samsung TV.

That said, here comes the full list of Samsung TV voice commands.

All the commands I have listed below are just examples of how you can interact with your Samsung TV in different ways. You don’t have to use these commands verbatim. Rather, take these as samples on how to talk to your Samsung TV.
