This is Bixby. A completely new way to use your Galaxy S8 or S8+. 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 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.
