Nice!  :thumbup:
That should be very handy for your music and videos.

Naw! I listen to my music with my PC cause I've got a nice Logitech speaker set. ;)

I've been playing with the tab and found that Samsung has it's own assistant called Bixby. This is integrated into all of their smart apps and devices now like ovens, tv's, etc. And it's pretty awesome! Here's a video showing some of it's features:

That sounds very useful, I need to check my phone for useful things like that. One thing mine has is the ability to do texting using voice commands which is quite handy for someone who is thumb challenged like me.  :disturbed:

The great thing is that Bixby is constantly being updated. When I bought the tab I had no idea it was included and when I saw it I didn't know what it was. LOL I didn't turn it on until after watching a few vids about it. Samsung also has a number of other apps that integrate into it.

The funny thing is that I've been looking for a good assistant lately since Google has been way to intrusive with one's information. For instance, I purchased some business cards from Vistaprint.com for the hosting. Google sent me an email asking to review Vistaprint! This tells me they've not only been reading my emails but using them to target me! WTF?!?!?!

That is another reason why I want to move away from gmail and create my own email server...privacy!!! But for now, I just might use docskillz.com for my mail email instead of gmail until I figure it out and get one setup. I started setting one up then we had the problem with the server going down and I just gave up on it for then. I'll try it again soon.

Email addresses that are keyed to your site is easy enough and although I almost never use mine anymore there several available.

Yeah, but I want email that I can fully control! Done the research for a few months awhile back. When I get it going I'll make posts and keep you updated.

Been playing around and found out that I only have Bixby Home which is basically a set of cards that will show you the weather, sports, etc. So, I tried to install Bixby Voice and it installed but doesn't work!  :censored:

However, After searching around I did find "Saiy" which seems to work pretty well.
