    Bixby voice appears to be showing up on S8 and S8+ devices that have been signed up for the Bixby Early Access Program. You should have also seen several updates to Samsung apps come through which would have added support for Bixby Voice. If you have received the update you should be able to open up Bixby which will then prompt you to setup the new Voice feature.

    I love how they have the button but bixby is a broken POS.... seriously my uncle got an S8+ and no matter what we tried bixby didn't work.

    if the button were reprogrammable that would be fine but hardcoded and useless. thanks samsung, there's a reason I haven't bought a device from you since the note 2

    I wonder how many people will actually use it.

    most likely an accurate image for those who want to use it but it won't work right.

    I downloaded BixBye which allows reprogramming of the Bixby button, I currently have it launching the torch.

    Sent from my S8+ using my finger.
