Bixby works with context awareness, and cognitive tolerance. It learns the behavior of every user over time making it even more powerful in consequent usage. It also supports wide range of applications and pair it to several actions to perform varied tasks.

Personally, I had fun setting up Bixby Voice. The Bixby Home is a whole new interface to play with, and it’s also a good thing that Samsung “gamified” Bixby. You will earn points and experience the more you use Bixby. It also comes with its own settings to customize background, voice gender and more.
