What Is Bixby?
- Bixby is still around even if it's very much second-best to the Google Assistant
And, while it hasn't had the success of any of those three assistants, it is still pre-installed on Samsung devices. Bixby is a virtual assistant. You can use it to text, get tailored information about the weather, reminders of meetings, news articles, and so on , learn more about what it sees with the camera like where to buy a couch in the camera view , and complete actions such as call your Mum for you. Bixby can learn individual voices, so it will personalise answers depending on who asks. Samsung said it "learns, evolves, and adapts" to you. Bixby is designed to let you carry out a full range of interactions, rather than launching an app, for example, or carrying out a single task. Bixby is contextually aware, meaning that it can recognise the state that the app is in and take the right actions based on your requests, also letting you mix voice or touch.
Subscriber Account active since. The Samsung Galaxy S10 includes a dedicated button to launch Bixby , the personal assistant that's somewhat similar to Google Assistant. The good news is that you can reconfigure the button to do other things. By default, the Bixby button launches Bixby with a single press of the button. You can remap the button to launch a different app, or assign a quick command to it with a double-press. If you prefer, you can make the app of your choice launch via the single press, and relegate Bixby to a double press.
