    I know there are hundreds of things you can tell it to do. What is something useful you found Bixby can do for you?

    Noone? Well I use the quick command to send pre-typed texts to my wife letting her know that I have made it to work safely. Very cool to be able to send a text with one or two words.

    Haha, seems Bixby is a bit slow taking off. Perhaps not many places have it yet, and most ppl are on the beta that are on here.
    As I understand it, Bixby is an assistant within the device itself, a butler as it were, as opposed to the google type things that need to look stuff up online..... Have I got that right?

    Yes. A way to control your phone without having to touch it.

    I use Bixby sparingly since I really don't need to use it for any real reason. I use Bixby check the weather and put the phone into do not disturb mode when I go to bed. I know I will start to use it more as I find more things Bixby is capable of.

    I've used it to send a lot of texts today and each time it's been correct on the first go. I also ask the weather and other boring things but it has yet to misunderstand me. Love it so far.

    I read that you could get it to reboot the phone into recovery mode but I could not get this to work. I do this once a week or so to clear the cache. I know you can clear the cache without booting into recovery mode but I prefer to do it this way so that I also restart the phone every once in a while.

    I don't find it all that useful, TBH. I think I'm going to switch back to OK Google as it seems faster and recognizes my voice more clearly.

    That is what I used Google Assistant for when traveling. It was easier to use GA than to physically type in the search of a weather app as that usually wants to stay within your pinned location. Will have to see how it works with Bixby now for the next trip.

    I don't know how to use Bixby yet; will have to Google that one. I did see something about using Bixby to take a photo of something to find out who makes it and how much it sells for.

    Close all apps, clear notifications, optimize now, clear internet history, turn on flashlight, increase screen brightness to 90%, snap a picture, turn off notifications.

    I saw on FB a guy lost his phone so he told Bixby to turn on the flashlight . Pretty good idea. I guess you could always have her open a music app too.
