A question for Android owners...
 
I'm currently an Apple guy (iPhone 6S +) and like the feature that accesses Siri if I long press the voice command button on the steering wheel. It works quite well in my opinion. My question is, what happens when you do the same thing if you have an Android smartphone? I'm thinking of getting the new Samsung Galaxy S9 + when it is released, or perhaps waiting for the Note 9 in the fall. For Samsung owners, does it bring up Bixby? Or Google Now? And what has your experience with it been? Thanks!

On my 18 440i, with a Nexus 5X on Android 7.x, it activates Google Assistant. I don't use it too often, but in general it works the way I expect it to. I use it mostly to respond to text messages when in the vehicle.
