Takerhbk has since begun to share the necessary files with the Bixby APK, and the launcher APK.

Mishaal Rahman from the XDA-Developers forum reports that he managed to run the digital assistant at Galaxy S7. There were many others who succeeded in bixby's porting on their own devices.

Google is preparing to release Google Assistant on mobile with Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat. Microsoft Cortana is available on the Google Play Store, and Amazon has begun to distribute its own Alexa Digital Assistant to smartphones. Of course, Apple's Siri is only available for iOS.
