Most variations of Samsung’s Galaxy Buds have a gesture for activating your cellphone’s default voice assistant, however should you’re utilizing the Buds with a Galaxy smartphone, the assistant is often set to Bixby. What if you wish to use Google Assistant as a substitute?
There’s no setting within the Galaxy Wearable app to modify digital assistants, however fortunately, it nonetheless solely takes a couple of steps to make use of Google Assistant with Galaxy Buds on a Samsung cellphone. You may also use Galaxy Buds with Amazon Alexa should you want that.

First, discover the Bixby app in your Samsung cellphone, maintain down on the icon, and press the Data button when it seems. You may also seek for Bixby in your cellphone’s Settings app, then choose the Bixby app.
When you’re on the App information display screen for Bixby, faucet on ‘Set as default.’ The display screen ought to say one thing like “this app is about to open by default for some actions.” Lastly, press the ‘Clear defaults’ button.

You may also select Alexa as your assistant in case you have the Alexa app put in.
Subsequent, put the Galaxy Buds in your ears and activate the assistant gesture — except you modified a setting, holding down on one of many buds for a couple of seconds ought to do it. Your cellphone will show a popup, permitting you to decide on which app you wish to use. Faucet your required assistant, then press the ‘At all times’ button. For instance, within the screenshot under, I’ve chosen “Google” so I can use Google Assistant as a substitute of Bixby.

If you wish to return to Bixby later or change to a distinct assistant, observe the steps within the above part once more (however as a substitute of Bixby, discover the app you chose). Samsung ought to actually add a button for this within the Galaxy Wearable app as I’m positive many will wish to use Google Assistant as a substitute of Bixby.
