Samsung Daily rolling out as Bixby Home replacement, but there’s a catch

Say goodbye to Bixby Home, and say hello to Samsung Daily, at least if you’re on the latest Android 10 beta on a Galaxy S10. If you’re on the newest Android 10 beta that Samsung released earlier today, you will find an update for Bixby Home in the Galaxy Store that turns it into Samsung Daily.

Samsung Daily is a rebranding of Bixby Home, which resides on the leftmost home screen on Galaxy devices and shows you news and other content from various services and websites in a card-based UI. Samsung Daily has no new functionality and the user interface remains the same as well. However, a few new services for news, videos, sports, and other content have been added. Some existing ones, like Flipboard, are still present, while services like Uber and Foursquare seem to have been removed.

Samsung had said at its developer conference last month that Samsung Daily would start rolling out in November, but according to the app’s changelog, the worldwide rollout will start by the end of the year, no doubt once the stable Android 10 update gets released. That doesn’t mean that Samsung Daily won’t be available on Android Pie, but for now, it’s only available for those that are running the latest Android 10 beta on their Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, or Galaxy S10 5G. It’s not available on the Android 10 beta on the Galaxy Note 10.

To get Samsung Daily, open the Galaxy Store on your phone, tap the three-dot button on the top right, tap My page, tap Update, then look for an update to Bixby Home and download it. You can also try tapping this link to open the Samsung Daily page directly on the Galaxy Store, although this will only work on Android 10 on a Galaxy S10 (you’ll be taken to the Bixby Home store listing on Android Pie).

I hated Bixby Home but this one is way faster and more responsive. Everything in the Android 10 beta seems faster and more responsive to be honest… I may give it a try

in UK the list of available cards is limited to like 6-7 most of which are useless – the bixby home had more intergration with other 3rd party apps ….
