I accidentally found Bixby is activated when I think my voice is possibly  similar to the words ' hi Bixby'. This happens even when phone is locked and display is turned off. On one side it's a very cool feature when your phone is responding to you when you ask for today's weather condition(for example) without the need to touch your phone at all, but on the other it's a bit scary thinking your phone is always secretly listening to you....
Luckily, it could be turned off and set as manual😅

True. Possibly I will re-enable it back once I feel good about it. For now, prefers Google for any voice activated option.👌
