Bixby is a digital personal assistant for your Galaxy smartphone that will learn your habits and interests over time. Once set up, Bixby adjusts automatically to your lifestyle and needs.

There are four key features to Bixby: Home, Vision, Reminder, and Voice. Each feature must be setup separately before they can be used. To get started, continue reading below.

Note: Bixby puts all the information that's important to you on one page. The information is displayed as cards. The arrangement of your cards depends on where you are and what time it is. In the morning you might see the weather and news, and at night, an alarm and step count. Bixby is an ever-learning assistant, and will learn as you use it.
