What is Bixby?

Bixby is a virtual assistant designed by Samsung. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are the first devices of the Korean manufacturer to be equipped with Bixby.


The Bixby virtual assistant allows you to control your device by voice commands. It is fundamentally different from Siri, Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana. In what way?

How is Bixby different?

Siri, Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana are virtual assistants from whom you can "ask for facts". You can also ask these assistants to perform an action for you, such as setting your alarm or a reminder. This is where Bixby stands out. Bixby is more designed as an assistant to fully control your phone with voice. According to Samsung, it should be possible to control the device almost entirely by voice.
