What is Bixby for Samsung? How to use Bixby?

Well, if you are totally unaware as to what Bixby is and how you can use it, this post is probably not for you. Still, in case you want to learn more about how the virtual assistant by Samsung works and how to make full use of it, you can head to an amazing article published by CNET.

As per Koh, Samsung will release an API and an SDK for the developers. The API would allow the developers to develop apps for the assistant whereas the latter will be used to integrate the various third-party apps with the Bixby.

The update is going to roll out most probably by November as the annual Samsung’s Developers Conference (SDC2018) is going to be held in San Fransisco on November 7-8. Furthermore, the company is also reportedly going to unveil its first-ever foldable smartphone dubbed the Samsung Galaxy X during the same event.
