For example, while pressing and holding the Bixby key, say “How’s the weather today?” The weather information will appear on the screen.

If you want to know the weather for tomorrow, you can say "Tomorrow?" while pressing and holding the Bixby key. As Bixby understands the context of the conversation, it will show you the weather for tomorrow as per requested.
