Samsung talked a lot about Bixby when they announced the Samsung Galaxy S8, but it wasn’t ready for prime time when the phone launched. For the last few months we’ve been using a half-baked version of Bixby. Samsung has been slowly rolling out the Voice functionality and now it’s finally widely available. It’s super easy to get it.
