The latest update is a strong indication that Bixby lives on despite speculations about its demise. The main takeaway here is that it’s still holding its ground even after signals of its potential exit in One UI 5.

Its subtle yet stylish update arrives a few weeks after the Samsung Galaxy S24 debut. The revamped Bixby UI is currently making its way to devices running One UI 6.0 or above, including not only smartphones but also Galaxy Tab devices.

On Samsung’s tablets, for instance, the Bixby orb shows up in the bottom-right corner, adding a touch of sophistication to the summoning experience.

While the update primarily focuses on enhancing Bixby’s visual appeal with a sleeker look, it doesn’t alter its core functionality.
