en-US/GB/IN Reserved Utterances

Certain words and phrases are reserved for Bixby, and cannot be used in training. These phrases are for meta-commands, such as list navigation, and for named dispatch.

Named Dispatch

In the pattern list, %dispatch-name% is a placeholder for your capsule's dispatch-name or one of its aliases.

  • "with %dispatch-name% ..."
  • "in %dispatch-name% ..."
  • "on %dispatch-name% ..."
  • "ask %dispatch-name% ..."
  • "ask %dispatch-name% for ..."
  • "ask %dispatch-name% to ..."
  • "use %dispatch-name% to ..."
  • "using %dispatch-name% ..."
  • "open %dispatch-name% and ..."
  • "talk to %dispatch-name% and ..."
  • "talk to %dispatch-name% to ..."
  • "launch %dispatch-name% and ..."
  • "start %dispatch-name% and ..."
  • "speak to %dispatch-name% and ..."
  • "... on %dispatch-name%"
  • "... with %dispatch-name%"
  • "... using %dispatch-name%"
  • "... from %dispatch-name%"
  • "... in %dispatch-name%"

For the following dispatch name patterns, you must have a default-action associated with your capsule. These only apply to the en-US locale.

  • "speak to %dispatch-name%"
  • "talk to %dispatch-name%”
  • "start %dispatch-name%"
  • "load %dispatch-name%"
  • "ask %dispatch-name%"
