There S-Pen Samsung equipped with many small functions and Air Action are among them. The Air Actions of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 allow you to use the S-Pen to control the various applications with simple touches. Let's see overall what are and how Air Actions work on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

What they are and how to activate Air Actions

As anticipated, the Air Actions are new features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus that allow you to use the S-Pen as if it were a remote control to navigate between apps. This function takes advantage of a controller with six-axis movement.

On the Galaxy Note 10 and 10 Plus the Air Actions are active by default, but it is possible to deactivate and reactivate the function:

  • Go to the panel Settings, then on Advanced functions and finally on S-Pen;
  • Air Actions should be present among the items on this screen. In compatible apps, the function is activated automatically and the possibility of using the Air Actions highlighted by the bubble icon which turns purple. The icon, on the other hand, is shown in gray when no function is possible.

How to use Air Actions

Using Air Action on Samsung Galaxy Note 10 very simple:

  • Hold down the button on the S-Pen;
  • Shake the pen like a wand;
  • Release the button at the end of the gesture.

Up to six gestures can be set for each app, including up, down, right, left, clockwise and counterclockwise.
