How to improve Bixby Voice using Samsung Feedback

Bixby Voice is the built in pocket assistant for Galaxy S8, and Galaxy Note 8 users and it can easily answer your questions and help you access the apps you want with just a few words. However, if Bixby Voice doesn't understand what you are saying, then you definitely aren't going to get the results that you've been hoping for. There is an easy way to help fine tune what Bixby hears while you're speaking to it, and it's by using feedback to correct incorrect words or phrases.

We've got the details for you here.

How to use feedback with Bixby

  1. Ask Bixby a question.
  2. Tap Teach Me under Bixby's response.
  3. Tap the word that Bixby misunderstood.

  1. Type out the correct word or phrase.
  2. Tap the arrow icon to teach Bixby.

  • When is it going to be in the play store for all Samsung phones?
  • Found the Galaxy J owner.
  • Thank goodness I have an S7.
  • Keep using it it'll get better the more you use it
  • Siri was the same way when it first came out. Now its a great asset to every iphone. Bixby has the potential as well.
  • How do I teach it to do something like "Open Spotify"? That command takes me to a web search. Interestingly, Spotify is part of Bixby Home. What I'm playing or recently played is in the feed, complete with music controls, but it got left out of Voice.
  • I love my S8+ but probably won't get another one because of Bixby. I will probably go with the next Pixel device if it is waterproof. I prefer the Google Assistant. It already worked quite well for me. I don't feel like spending $700 + dollars on a device and have issues using a personal assistant on it where I had no issues before on other Android devices.
