The Weather Company has confirmed that it’s now providing weather data for Samsung’s digital personal assistant Bixby. One of the basic commands that you can give to Bixby is to have it pull up weather information. The Bixby weather experience is now going to be powered by The Weather Company.

This is an expansion of the existing global partnership that Samsung and The Weather Company announced earlier this year. That partnership made TWC the default weather data provider on select Samsung devices like the Galaxy S8. TWC provided weather data for Samsung’s weather widget as well.

Bixby Weather Data

Bixby will be able to pull up weather information from TWC that includes real-time current conditions, hourly forecasts for up to 36 hours and 10 day forecasts for 2.2 locations across the globe. Static maps to show satellite radar images are included as well.

Users who have a supported device will receive weather alerts and notifications that will help notify them of impending severe weather that could affect them.

A clickable icon presence has been launched in the Samsung Internet Browser which will enable users to get the latest weather information via the preloaded TWC icon. It will soon be available in all new and existing US devices running Samsung’s browser.

The enhanced integration of The Weather Channel with Bixby is now live in Bixby on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the United States. The Weather Channel confirms that this integration will be rolled out globally soon.
