    Bixby is Samsung's new virtual assistant for the Galaxy S8+. It's basically like their own version of Google Now: a feed of information that should be useful to you. It can be accessed by pressing the physical Bixby button. Here's how to set it up.
    1. Press the Bixby button on the left side of the device
    2. Tap Start
    3. Agree to the conditions
    Now you'll want to customize what Bixby can show
    1. Tap the Settings icon in the upper right
    2. Select Hello Bixby cards
    3. Toggle all the content you want to see
    4. Go back, select Hello Bixby on Lock screen
    5. Toggle all the content you want to see on the lock screen
    Bixby can be accessed from anywhere with the physical button or by swiping to the left on Samsung's launcher.

    Another way to use Bixby is a feature called "Bixby Vision." This uses the camera to scan items and find relevant information.
    1. Open the Camera
    2. Tap the eye icon
    3. Point your camera at something
    4. Bixby will scan and show results, such as images and shopping
