Microsoft has its own digital assistant, Cortana, that they use for their Windows computers. However, if you were to buy a Samsung branded laptop in the future that runs on Microsoft’s brand new Windows 11 platform, you can opt to use Bixby instead.

According to Samsung, “Furthermore, for even more mobility with your device, Samsung has introduced Bixby on Windows for Galaxy Book users to provide an intuitive way for you to interact with your PC. Through simple voice commands, you can search for files, open apps and Settings and even control devices within your SmartThings-registered device ecosystem.”

Samsung says that activating Bixby will be as simple as pressing hotkeys to activate the digital assistant, such as CTRL, Shift and B, or FN and B, so users will have different choices when it comes to how they want to launch it.

The company also notes that the Galaxy Book Pro 360 5G will be the first Samsung laptop to run Windows 11, but for those who are running older models, Samsung states that existing Galaxy Book models that are compatible will also be able to update themselves to Windows 11 once it starts rolling out to more users.

Windows 11 is actually live as it was launched on the 5th of October. However, it will initially be available for brand new devices shipping from computer makers, before it starts making its way into the hands of those on compatible Windows 10 computers.
