Publish a Bixby Capsule and Earn $300 Samsung Store Credit. Compete for $125,000 in cash and prizes!


Samsung is hosting the Bixby DevJam Developer Showcase. The first 250 capsules to be approved and published onto the Bixby Marketplace will receive $300 US Samsung Store credit. All capsules published to the Marketplace before the deadline will qualify to win additional cash prizes. In addition, contestants have a chance to have Adam Cheyer (cofounder of Siri, Change.org, and the new Bixby) be a mentor to the winning team’s company.

Be part of the voice revolution

Samsung will support over 500 million devices by 2020, and developers have a unique early mover advantage to share their voice experiences on our vast ecosystem of devices. Publish a capsule and receive $300 to spend on Samsung products. Our mission is to get Samsung devices into the hands of as many developers as possible and tell us how Bixby should be incorporated into our hardware.

All developers that sign up and publish a capsule onto Marketplace between October 18th, 2019 - December 9th, 2019 are automatically entered to compete for:

  • $10,000 Grand Prize for best overall capsule
  • Two finalists will win $5,000 each
  • Five runner ups will receive $1,000
  • Twenty Store Section winners will win $1,000

The development team that wins the Grand Prize, will have the opportunity to have Adam Cheyer as a mentor for their company.

How to participate

Sign up at www.bixbydevjam.com, then download the Bixby Developer Studio to get started. Develop and publish a new Bixby Capsule into the Bixby Marketplace by December 9, 2019. Once you finish developing your capsule(s), check out the Bixby Approval Checklist to make sure you meet all the criteria. The first 300 that have their capsule published onto the Marketplace will receive $300 store credit to the Samsung.com store.

All developers who submit a capsule get automatically entered into winning cash prizes for the Bixby DevJam Developer Showcase.

How to win
