Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

It is Android's version of Apple's Siri. You can talk to it and it will talk back at you.

Be careful. Once you start using it, it gets easier and easier to use. For instance, I use Siri on my iPhone and am finding it very useful to tell it to set a timer for so many minutes for me instead of setting a timer on my oven....

Or, if I get bored, I try and trip it up with questions it can't answer, or will answer wrong...

Bixby is rated pretty low as a "personal servant". I would just kill it off.

I use Siri all the time. Siri, give me two hours on the timer, Siri set the alarm for 0400, Siri call wife.....it does it all for me and I don't even have to take the phone out of my pocket.

"Siri - turn on the flashlight"

My daughter thought that was funny. She said, "Why go through all that trouble when you just have to swipe down and push the button?" I asked her which one required more effort - to turn it on, or tell it to turn it on?

Damn, technology has made us lazy. Normally, I'd go to another room and get the damned flashlight and bring it out to use it.
