Viv Labs

Viv is the next-generation virtual personal assistant, brought to you by the team that created Siri. 

Viv radically simplifies the world by providing an intelligent interface to everything.

Viv debuted on May 9, 2016, at Disrupt NYC. 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.


VentureBeat named Viv one of the top 15 interesting startups to watch in 2016, and after their acquisition by Samsung, Viv is now poised to bring their vision of a new kind of user interaction to the world at global scale.


On October 5, 2016, the software and its developer, Viv Labs, Inc. (formerly Six Five Labs, Inc.) was acquired by Samsung Electronics.
