Bixby works with most of Samsung's own-brand apps, such as Samsung Internet, Samsung Health and Samsung Music. But that's not all. It works with a growing list of third-party apps under what Samsung is calling Bixby Labs. Here are all the non-Samsung apps that work with Bixby for now. To interact with any of these apps using Bixby, just say, "Open [app name]" followed by something you want to do. For Facebook, you could say, "Open Facebook and share the three most recent photos," or, "Open Facebook and show me my notifications."You can turn third-party support off by going to Bixby Home > Settings > Bixby Labs and toggling if off.

(In this case, you must infer you already need to have an album called Birthday, otherwise Bixby will just open the Gallery app.). These suggested commands help illustrate the sort of complex, multistep things Bixby is capable of that other voice assistants can't do. That said, a handful of commands in the user guide did not work for one reason or another.
