The app competition is being tough and all the big brands aim to bring their apps to their devices. We have seen recently Google to update almost of its apps and Samsung as well is implementing more and more it’s own apps to the devices it launches.
Samsung’s Hello Bixby personal assistant comes pre-installed as a stock app on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + and it works pretty well.

The only requirement needed to install Hello Bixby on any Samsung Galaxy device; it should run the official TouchWiz Android version or any other firmware based on Samsung’s stock firmware. Also, the Android version must be 6.0.1 Marshmallow and higher. So if you haven’t changed the stock ROM of your device, you’re good to go. Just make sure to check the Android version under Settings > About Device. Also, it’s recommended to install a Galaxy S8 Launcher.
Hello Bixby, Samsung’s personal assistant comes as a direct apk file and you can install it simply as a normal app. If you haven’t installed an apk file before, you should enable “Uknown Sources” under Settings > Security.
The Hello Bixby app is tested on various devices such as Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Galaxy S7 (Edge), Galaxy Note 5, etc. At the moment the app may not work with all the Marshmallow firmware but it should in the future.
