by the way and by the by
1. a phrase indicating that the speaker is adding information. (By the by is not as frequent.) Tom: Is this one any good? Clerk: This is the largest and, by the way, the most expensive one we have in stock. Bill: I'm a realtor. Is your house for sale? Alice: My house is not for sale, and, by the way, I too am a realtor.
2. a phrase indicating that the speaker is casually opening a new subject. Bill: Oh, by the way, Fred, do you still have that hammer you borrowed from me? Fred: I'll check. I thought I gave it back. Jane: By the by, don't you owe me some money? Sue: Who, me?

by the way (spoken)
in addition but of less importance By the way, I heard that Phyllis may be moving to Dallas. What did you have for dinner, by the way?

by the bye
Also, by the by. Incidentally, in passing, as in By the bye, my wife is coming too, or Exactly where do you live, by the by? The bye or second by in this term originally meant "a side path," whence the current sense of "off the track" or "of secondary importance." [Early 1500s]
