This is Bixby, a virtual assistant that gives you a completely new way to control your Galaxy S8 or S8+. Of course, you can use voice, text, or touch to say what you need because Bixby understands all three, but if you're lost for words, just open the camera and Bixby will search based on the image you show it. Bixby is integrated into every aspect of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and is constantly learning how you like to do things, so it can get better and better.

*Bixby recognises selected languages. Others to be supported. Bixby voice controls will soon be integrated into some of your favourite native apps.
