Bixby Home is one of the core components of Samsung’s virtual assistant Bixby. It proactively offers information about news, weather, fitness, upcoming appointments, etc. to the users. Sports content from the popular sports website theScore.com is joining the list now.
TheScore has announced the launch of sports news and scores on Bixby Home for users in the United States. The service will cover updates from the FIFA World Cup, NFL Football, NBA Basketball, NHL Hockey, MLB Baseball and EPL Soccer.
You can follow favorite teams and leagues
To access the theScore content cards on Bixby Home, users can just press the Bixby button (if available) or swipe right on the home screen of Bixby-compatible Samsung smartphones.
