Bixby has been around for a few years now, but some of its features aren't all that useful. At launch, Bixby was limited to some AR features that could identify products for shopping, but now Samsung is preparing to kill off Bixby Vision.
When Bixby first launched on the Galaxy S8 , its AR features were the main part of the assistant that was actually useful. It could identify products for shopping such as home furnishing, and it could also identify locations and even makeup.
Now , Bixby Vision is being killed off. In a notice sent to users in September, Samsung revealed that Bixby Vision would no longer be supported starting later in October. We don't know a specific date, but it sounds like things will keep going until the very end of the month.
