    Nope.

    I don't use any kind of "assistant" where I have to talk at my device.

    I did at first to try it out but I really don't find it very useful, personally. I haven't used it in a while.

    I use it the same way I used Siri on my iPhone. Set timers, alarms, check weather, the occasional conversion. It works for what I want it to do.

    Google Assistant? Yes, all the time.

    I recently got the S8, but haven't used Bixby yet. I'm wondering if I were to setup Google with the standard phrase of "ok Google," would I later be able to setup Bixby and use it or Google depending on the launch phrase?

    I used it when I was getting points for Samsung Pay , but I don't use it for anything useful , don't use Google Assistant either really. I'll hit the Google search when I need to

    I don't use Bixby myself but you can use both Bixby and Google assistant. On YouTube, sakitech has a nice video demonstrating how they can work together. Don't have the link right now. Just search YouTube for sakitech Bixby videos.

    Yes I do use it and google assistant all the time. Bixby is more limited but unless there's a workaround to talk to google assistant when the phone is locked, I have to use it.

    In the Oreo Beta, you can wake Google assistant by voice from AOD or lockscreen. One of my favorite things about Oreo, since I use Assistant frequently.

    No way! I'm looking forward to doing that like I did with my old phone, Oreo can't come soon enough.

    The way the phone’s buttons are laid out, I often press Bixby by accident. It is more of an annoyance than of service to me.

    All you have to do is disable it. You know you can do that in bixby right?
    Then, the only way it actives is by a long press. Is that so hard?

    My experience has been that Google assistant can do everything that Bixby can do and more...other than the shopping thing that it does via the camera, but that just seems really gimmicky to me. I'll stick with Google assistant for now. Bixby is more useful than the dead s-voice from back in the day....
