Following its debut on the Galaxy S8/S8+ at the beginning of the year, the general consensus for Samsung's Bixby virtual assistant is that it's a poor man's version of Google Assistant. Bixby had a rocky release thanks to the delayed launch of Bixby Voice a few months after the S8 line hit the market in the U.S., but now that it's been out for a hot minute and people are actually getting to use it, opinions seem to be changing.
One user posted a question in our forums asking whether or not people are actually using Bixby since it doesn't seem to be on the same fluidity level of Google Assistant, and a lot of Bixby users were quick to respond with their thoughts on the AI.
Spoiler alert, most of them are very positive.
A lot of our users agreed that, while Bixby isn't perfect, it does have certain strengths over Google Assistant with more device-specific actions.
However, there are still some situations where Google Assistant takes the upper hand
Now, we want to passs the question on to you – If you've used Bixby, what are your thoughts on the assistant at this point in time?
