The Google feed has been elusive for most launchers that aren't from Google on Pixel and Nexus devices. Not for Nova now.
Bixby has a lot of competition, but with its scale, it needs to be a top notch experience. Anything less could be a disaster.

The Upcoming is all the travel and events that Google knows you're involved in while the feed will stick to weather and news.

Ericsson used to have a larger footprint in the mobile technology space. In this decade, we’re lucky if we hear from them once or twice a year.
