What is Bixby Text Call on Samsung Phones?
The Bixby text call feature on Samsung phones allows you to answer calls using the Bixby voice assistant only. The caller will hear responses from Bixby’s voice. So, you don’t have to pick up the call and talk to the caller, Bixby will handle the call for you.
You can write text responses to the call, which Bixby will respond to the caller in its voice. This means, when you are not in a situation to attend or talk to someone on the call, you can use Bixby’s voice and text, to convey your responses to the caller.

How to Translate Bixby Text Call Responses
To better understand the ongoing conversation and the caller’s response, you can translate the text responses screen. In the case of Samsung phones with Bixby, you can use Bixby Vision, to translate text from an image to any language in a couple of seconds.

This was all about the Bixby text call or call screening feature of Samsung Galaxy smartphones. You can say it is kind of inspired by Call Screening on Google Pixel, but the working is different from Google’s solution. It is definitely a useful feature, but we are waiting for Samsung to add English language support for better usability across the globe, until then you can translate the text either using Bixby Vision or our guide.
