    Maybe not now but you will in the far future. Think: self driving cars.
    I'm willing to bet heavily that Bixby never drives a car. It might make an appearance as part of an infotainment center, but even that seems like a loose bet.

    I can't forget about Bixby, I hit the damn button but at least 2-3 times a day by mistake.

    These phones have too many features that you will never use plus Google covers most of them with their features. After the bixby update I will give it a try can be that bad.

    Well... remains to be seen if this follows the path of a lot of Samsung's other features. I think it was... maybe a year or two ago, that someone did a deep dive into the metrics of a lot of Samsung's stuff they toss into their phones, things like S-Voice and apps that overlap with non-Samsung offerings. I recall that while nearly everyone tries out Samsung's own stuff, some ridiculously high amount, high 90%s, used it once or twice than abandoned it for the third party offering and by a month after purchase, they were no longer touched.

    I get what Samsung is trying... they want to be more than a phone OEM and want to be an ecosystem builder like Google. But wanted to be and doing are two different things. Google's ecosystem is built off the fact that they are the dominant force across the internet... Their mobile platform runs 80+% of the world's smartphones and their services, like gmail, maps, chrome, etc are equally as dominant. They are a services company and do a far better job than Samsung, who is a sprawling consumer electronics manufacturer...

    And... just as importantly, Google is platform agnostic. With few exceptions, their stuff can run on everything... Android, iOS, desktops, etc. So even if you switch around all the time, you have access to all that stuff they provide. Samsung tries to leverage their stuff to get you to buy more Samsung phones.

    So Bixby, like many of the Samsung features that preceeded it, is an inferior product running on a limited number of devices. That doesn't bode well for Bixby's long term success.

    I think Bixby will get polished a bit for the Note 8, and then, a bit more for the S9, and Note 9. Beyond that, I think Bixby will start warming the bench.

    I have not done anything with it other than ignore it when it has asked. Not why I went to Samsung again...does not sound like I am missing out.

    Is anyone even looking forward to its full roll out in North America? To me I'm not. I don't even really care and have forgotten all about it basically.
    Yeah, it's just this thing that's there. I don't use voice assistants anyway, so when Bixby becomes capable of it, I won't use it.

    I've disabled it... Maybe I'll give it another shot when it comes of age, for now I'll keep Google Assistant.

    Does that just disable the button altogether or can you assign other tasks for it? I tried an app that allows you to reprogram the button but it was too much of a glitch fest for my liking. I really wish I could just use it for a flashlight toggle but I can't stand glitchy behavior and I think the Bixby is too ingrained in the software for there to be a decent third party app without root.

    Not sure what case you may be using? But a benefit of the otterbox defender case(or any case with stiffer side material) is you have to actually put effort into getting the Bixby button to respond. Had a flimsy cheap Amazon case initially & that had no effect. Have not accidentally activated the button since getting the o.d. case back in April. So maybe something to think about for those not wanting to mess with a remap app & needing a case.

    To the op's question. Have to admit I was optimistic back when the phone was released that Samsung would really push to get this right. However at this point, really hope they just leave it alone. Rarely use Google Assistant & cannot imagine integrating the things Bixby is suppose to do in my daily use.

    The ship has sailed. The next Note will be the phone that most benefits from Bixby.
    But wasting a button on it that cannot be reprogrammed is horrible.

    I don't even use google's assistant so imagine bixby lol haven't set it up haven't touched it and neither will i. Basically i have no need for an Ai.
    I use Google because I just say OK Google. If I had to press a special button I wouldn't want Google either

    Not sure what that has to do with using Bixby on my phone.. lol. As per the topic.. I won't use Bixby now or later. I will use assistant since it works with other products and not just Samsung only.
    Never say never. Everyone didn't use Samsung pay. They are starting now. It's still an​ unreleased, unfinished tech. Just wait and see.

    We have been over this -- I won't use it. I can promise you this. I will use Assistant since it works with my other Google products.
