When you ask a question or issue a request, Bixby Voice accesses location information obtained from your device if ‘Location’ is turned on in your device settings, and will use that location information as necessary to answer a question you ask or respond to a request you make (e.g. if you ask “How’s the weather today?”, Bixby Voice will use your location data to figure out the correct weather information to provide to you). However, Bixby Voice will not be able to access your location data if you have turned ‘Location’ off in your device settings.
