Check the software version and update Bixby
Bixby is always growing and getting better. Make sure Bixby remains at its best by keeping the software up-to-date. This includes not only Bixby Voice, but also Bixby Vision and Bixby Routines. If you don't know how to update, don't worry. Performing a software update is just as easy as activating Bixby.
Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.
Check and update Bixby Voice's software version
Even if you've recently updated Bixby Home, you may still need to update Bixby Voice. That's because even though these services are connected, they are two different apps.
Then, tap Menu (the three horizontal lines) in the upper left-hand corner.
Next, tap the Settings icon, and then swipe to and tap About Bixby Voice.
The latest software version of Bixby Voice will be displayed. If an update is available, you can update Bixby Voice from this screen.
Upgrade Bixby Vision's software version
Bixby Vision lets you use your camera to identify objects and landmarks in the real world. However, it can only perform its best when it has the latest software version.
To open Bixby Vision, navigate to and open the Camera app.
Tap MORE, and then tap BIXBY VISION.
Note: On older phones, you can tap Bixby Vision from the main Camera screen.
Tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap Settings.
Swipe to and tap About Bixby Vision.
The latest software version of Bixby Vision will be displayed. If an update is available, you can update Bixby Vision from this screen.
Update Bixby Routines
If you rely on Bixby Routines for almost everything, make sure the software is up-to-date so it can continue assisting you.
Note: Bixby Routines is only available on the Galaxy S10, S20, Note10, Note20, Z Flip, and Fold series.
To open Bixby Routines, swipe down from the top of your screen with two fingers to open the Quick settings panel.
