    Bixby can now answer you in your own voice!

    Samsung has released an awesome new feature for those who use Bixby: you can now create your own custom voice! The Bixby Voice Creator app is now available for Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets – it's unclear if it requires the One UI 5.1.1 update, but it seems the rollout of the feature is happening slowly and may take time to reach everyone.

    To set up your own synthetic voice in Bixby, you will need to open the Bixby app's settings, go into the Language and voice style menu, and tap the Create Custom Voice option at the bottom of the screen. Your device will need to be at least 30% charged; once you make sure that's the case, follow the steps below to create your very own Bixby voice.

    How to create and add your own voice to Bixby

    1. Open Bixby (by long pressing the power button or tapping its icon in the app drawer) and go to its settings.
    2. Here, select the Language and voice style option.
    3. Tap on the Create Custom Voice option at the bottom of the screen.
    4. Tapping Create Custom Voice the first time will require you to download some apps from the Galaxy Store. Do that, then repeat the first three steps before moving on to step number 5 below.
    5. Hit the Start button to start the voice creation procedure.

    Upon pressing the start button in the Voice Creator, you will be asked to read ten different sentences shown on-screen, including one that will ask you to profess your love for Samsung. After you've done that, you will be asked to give a name to the voice and Bixby will then start learning your voice. This procedure can take a while, but it can run in the background so you can use other apps if you don't want to just sit there and stare at the progress bar.

    Once the procedure is complete, hit the Go to Settings button to go back to the Language and voice style menu to find your newly created custom voice in the list. Tap it to set it as the default Bixby voice – tapping it is also how you can check how your voice sounds. In our opinion it did a fantastic job on the first attempt, but if you're not satisfied, you can create as many custom voices as you want to get the desired results.

    Your synthetic Bixby voice may not work with all Bixby features

    Samsung warns that the custom voice may not work everywhere and seems to be designed mainly for the Bixby text call and other text-to-speech features. However, Bixby will also use your voice to answer any queries you may have, such as reading out the weather, telling you the time, or answering any query you may make.

    Now, we're not sure if this feature requires One UI 5.1.1, but we're hoping it doesn't as that would mean many users will have to wait as some Galaxy devices will go directly from One UI 5.0/5.1 to One UI 6. That requirement would also leave out a huge number of Galaxy phones and tablets that aren't eligible for any updates after Android 12 and One UI 4.x.

    We'll update this article once we learn which devices / One UI versions are compatible, but in the meantime you can check if the feature is available on your device by updating all apps through the Galaxy Store and then checking the Language and voice style menu in Bixby settings to see if there's a Create Custom Voice option in there.
