Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Hands free photos and videos

The default Camera app on the new Samsung Galaxy flip phones comes with a number of great features for more advanced, sophisticated mobile photography and videography.

All these embedded features are accessible through the camera settings.

The Samsung camera is also designed to allow users alter the default settings to make the camera work according to their preferences and yield personalized results.

From the camera settings, you can change the picture size using the preset ratio options, set a timer, enable shutter sound, and use any of the preloaded voice commands to switch from the typical Volume button presses to hands-free photography or videography.

Depicted below are the steps to access and use voice commands on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 camera.

If you’re new to this device and wondering how to access and manage this setting on your new Samsung flip phone, feel free to refer to the outlined instructions.

Different Ways to Enable Voice Commands on Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 Camera

The Samsung camera app settings can be accessed and managed in two ways either through the settings app or straight from the Camera app settings menu. Depicted below is the actual process of carrying out both methods on the new Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphone.

Just pick your preferred method and refer to the steps whenever you’re all set to enable hands-free gestures (voice control) for the built-in camera.

A. Enabling Hands-free gestures through the Camera App

These steps will take you straight to the camera app’s settings menu where you can find a list of all in-built functions including Shooting methods.

Start whenever you’re all set.

Step 1: Launch the Camera app to get started. Just tap on the Camera app icon from the Home screen or Apps tray on your device.
Step 2: Next, tap the Gear/Settings icon on the top-left corner of the camera app’s main screen. Doing so opens the in-built camera settings menu.
Step 3: Scroll to find and then tap Shooting methods. Another menu opens, prompting all available shooting methods including the default which is the Volume keys.
Step 4: To enable and use voice commands when taking pictures or recording videos with the Samsung camera, turn the Voice commands switch ON.

Make sure that the surrounding is quiet when saying voice commands. Otherwise, your phone may not be able to understand you and therefore fail to execute the uttered voice command.

B. Enabling Hands-free gestures through Settings

The following steps will take you to the Samsung camera app’s settings menu through the Settings app. While this method appears to be longer than the previous, it is regarded as the standard process. 

Feel free to start whenever you’re ready.

Step 1: To get started, open Settings by tapping on the Gear/Settings icon from the Home screen or Apps tray of your phone.

Step 2: While in the settings menu, scroll to find then tap Apps. A list of all installed apps will load up on the next screen.

Step 3: Find then select the Camera app from the list. Doing so will take you to the Samsung Camera app’s info screen.

Step 4: Tap Camera settings to proceed. The camera app’s settings menu will load up next.

Step 5: Scroll down then tap Shooting methods to proceed. A list of all in-built shooting methods will be displayed next.

Step 6: Find Voice Commands then tap to turn on the switch next to it. 

Doing so enables the phone’s hands-free gestures for the Samsung camera app, allowing  you to take pictures or record videos by saying any of the preset phrases or commands.

To check and see if it works, exit Settings then launch the camera app. As soon as the camera is ready, use any of the preset commands to take a picture or record a video.

You can access the Galaxy Z Flip 4 camera app even when the device is locked. To do this, simply press the Side key two times (successively) and the camera app’s screen opens.

Preset Commands To Take Pictures and Record Videos

When enabled, you can take a picture by saying “Smile,” “Cheese,” “Capture,” or “Shoot.” To record videos, just say Record Video. That should prompt your device to start recording.

Aside from voice commands, you can also use other hands-free methods to take pictures or record videos with the Samsung camera. An alternative to voice commands is the Show palm method. 

As the name suggests, taking pictures or recording videos with the stock Camera app is done by showing your palm to the camera. 

Show palm is enabled by default. If it is disabled on your device, simply toggle to turn the Show palm switch ON. You can find it among other options from the Shooting methods menu.

Cannot take pictures or record videos using voice commands?

If your phone doesn’t take photos or record videos using any of the preset voice commands, it could be because it failed to register or process the word you said. Make sure that you utter the commands or phrases clearly. 

Also ensure that Bixby is enabled. If you haven’t already, set up Bixby on your Galaxy Z Flip 4.

For starters, Bixby is Samsung’s very own intelligence assistant that’s integrated in later Samsung phones from the Galaxy S8 series onwards.

With Bixby, you can carry out a lot of tasks on  your phone by simply talking to your phone.

Once you’ve got Bixby up, retry launching the Camera and utter any of the preset commands to take a picture or record a video.

Also ensure that your phone’s operating system is up-to-date.

Hope this helps!
