Bixby

Samsung's virtual assistant introduced with the Galaxy S8 smartphones in 2017. Along with a dedicated button residing below the volume buttons, Bixby was design to command the device by voice and provide an alternative to tapping the screen. A Bixby "Home" app provides news and information replacing Flipboard, which was in the S7 devices. Bixby's "Visual" component is able to analyze images and provide information about them. Not just for phones and tablets, Bixby is expected to be incorporated into other Samsung products. See Galaxy S.

Bixby Vision on the Galaxy S8
In this example, Bixby Vision identified a Chinese restaurant sign. Note the lack of a physical home button on the S8, which allows for a narrow bottom bezel. (Image courtesy of Samsung, www.samsung.com)
