Your phone will begin to shut down and then switch back on.

Use a Voice Command to Restart a Samsung Galaxy S21

A hands-free way to reboot your Samsung Galaxy S21 is to use your phone’s built-in virtual assistant, Bixby. You can ask the assistant to reboot your phone and it will do that for you.

To start, open Bixby on your phone. The way you do this depends on how you’ve configured the assistant.

One way to trigger it is to just say, “Hi, Bixby.” When Bixby opens, say, “Restart my phone.”

When it asks for your confirmation, say, “Yes.”

The virtual assistant will begin to power off your phone. Your device will then power back on.


Does your phone refuse to shut down or restart? You can try force rebooting your Android phone to potentially fix the issue.
