Been trying to figure this out also - looks like it's not possible as best I can tell.  Something seems to be missing from Bixby Vision

Seems to work ok...

Open Bixby Vision & select the food icon. When it recognises what's there, press the button & it'll come up with the info at the bottom of the screen. I had the option of 'adding to my food with a caption... 

Open Samsung health & click 'manage items, then activate the food icon. Info will be stored there!

Makes sense - the problem is I don't see a food option once I open Bixby Vision.

 

The available modes are

Place 

Wine

QR code.

 

I have watched YouTube videos of people making use of it, but that food option just isn't there on my device.

 

It's also not on the S9 + my girlfriend picked up either.

I hope not.

It's already annoying enough that the my BP labs app for Blood Pressure was limited to the US only for now, it would just be plain stupid if the food part of Bixby vision was also limited to certain countries.

 

While I remember them mentioning the thing about the make up function being limited to certain countries at launch (and my Mrs accepts that), I recall no mention of these features being limited.

How very odd! I'm in UK & it's definitely on mine 🤔Screenshot_20180316-082814_Bixby Vision.jpg

Very odd indeed.

 

I am in Ireland, so usually we tend to fall into the UK timeline for such things.

Yea I'm in Ireland aswell but still dont have it. The lack of Samsung mods replying is shocking.

Agreed - this was a feature they were singing out during their presentation and no information available since on this, or anything else for that matter.
