After rolling out last month in the US, the Samsung Bixby voice assistant has expanded to Canada and over 200 more countries around the world.

As for operating the service, you'll need to hold down on the Bixby button (as opposed to tapping it) to initiate voice commands and queries. "In the future, Bixby will have the learning power to offer more intelligent and personalized interactions and seamless connections across more devices".
