Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are already having the Google Assistant. But the Bixby voice-assistant gets its own dedicated button on the phones which can be used to wake up the assistant. Users can make contextual requests to Bixby.

Bixby is a completely new way to use your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. With Bixby you can use voice, text, or touch to say what you need since it understands all three. When you’re lost for words, open the camera and Bixby will search for you. It’s integrated into every aspect of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, so it’s able to handle the tasks you normally do on your phone and it’s constantly learning your ways so it can get better and better.

Bixby will also show you all the related information for the day like remind you to water the plants when you get home or to call someone back when you get back to the office. You can also have the reminders show on the AOD screen, Bixby Home, or the edge screen.

Bixby is the latest creation of Samsung similar to Apple’s Siri that Samsung banks on to reclaim its edge as the world’s top smartphone maker after it suffered a blow to its sales and reputation due to the unsuccessful Galaxy Note 7 which had a battery problems.
