Viv is an intelligent personal assistant software created by the developers of Siri. It debuted on May 9, 2016, at Disrupt NYC.[1][2] Compared to Siri, the software's platform is open and can accommodate external plug-ins written to work with the assistant. It can also handle more complex queries.[3] The development team has been working on the software since 2012[4][5] and had raised over $22 million in funding by early 2015[6] and $30 million by early 2016.[7]

Developer(s) Six Five Labs, Inc.
Development status Active
Type Intelligent personal assistant

On October 5, 2016, Six Five Labs, Inc. was acquired by Samsung Electronics.[8]

The following month, it was revealed that a personal assistant software would be available on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+,.[9] This, however, turned out to be Bixby, which is a relaunch of S Voice, rather than based on Viv. As of the beginning of 2017, it is unclear how much of the technology of Viv will be used by future versions of Bixby.
