Bixby was touted to be one of the unique and key features of the Samsung Galaxy S8. However oddly enough when the phone was launched, Bixby was also launched but only partially. For example Bixby Voice was not available at launch, and for Verizon users Bixby Vision was also an incomplete feature.

However the good news is that has changed as the full Bixby Vision experience for Verizon Galaxy S8 owners has been activated. What this means is that users will be able to use Bixby Vision on their Verizon Galaxy S8 smartphones to identify objects in real life and get links to buy it online from retailers such as Amazon (assuming availability).

Thankfully the delay wasn’t too bad, although we have to wonder if this was even a feature that many users were excited for in the first place, or if maybe it’s more of a novelty than anything. The update should be rolling out to Galaxy S8 owners on Verizon so do keep an eye out for it if this is something you want to try.

In the meantime Bixby Voice has been activated for users over in South Korea. It is expected that it should also be finding its way to other markets soon, so we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for when it does.
