Our Experience With Bixby Text Call
Bixby text call is available in more regions than Google Assistant Call Screening.
Bixby’s voice transcription isn’t accurate all the time. Sometimes, you may get irrelevant responses, leading to confusion.
Sometimes, the recipient may end the call after hearing Bixby’s robotic voice. The person may show disinterest for not talking to a real human being.
Avoid Spam Calls on Samsung Phones
Although One UI comes with spam protection, marketers and advertisers always find a way to reach you during busy hours. Instead of wasting time with them, use Bixby text call to learn the reason for calling and attend relevant calls only.
