See through Bixby’s eyes

If you’re a frequent traveler, Bixby is a dream come true. By simply focusing on an object with your camera and tapping the Bixby eye icon, you can find out exactly what it is you’re looking at – whether it’s an unfamiliar restaurant, a historic landmark, or foreign language signage. Bixby also simplifies shopping. If you spot something on the street that you’re interested in buying, whether it’s a purse or a pair of sneakers, simply let Bixby process the image and you’ll be able to browse retail sites selling similar items.

Make it easier

One of Bixby’s additional perks is its ability to adapt to your behavior. As the assistant comes to understand your daily routine, it will recommend applications based on the current time and location. In the morning, for example, you might be presented with your weather or news app, while Bixby may choose to pull up your run tracker once you arrive home in the evening.

Stay on top of things

Bixby provides users with convenient reminders throughout the day.

Forgetful individuals will also find something to love with Bixby’s ability to provide you with convenient reminders. From location-specific errands and reminders to viewing certain videos or reading a particular article when you get home from work, Bixby will ensure that you get the job done.

Talk the talk

Bixby is now able to familiarize itself with your speech patterns, affording you total vocal control over the assistant. You can send texts, change settings and more – just say the word.
