Bixby Voice now available in 200 countries

Bixby Voice now available in 200 countries

If you want to use Bixby, you need to own a Galaxy S8 or S8+. The global rollout follows a limited release in USA and Samsung's home region of South Korea earlier this year. Bixby was available on Samsung S8 devices right from the launch of the device although the voice assistance was rolled out a couple of months after the release of the device.

Despite these clear setbacks compared to Google Assistant, Samsung still appears to be confident in its current rollout for Bixby Voice.

We would love to know what you think of Bixby? But without voice control added to the mix, many users opted to remap the Bixby button to summon Google Now and other tasks. You can now activate Bixby by holding the dedicated button on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ phones, or by simply saying, “Hi, Bixby.”.

Bixby's approach to voice commands includes the ability for what it calls "quick commands", which are essentially pre-set sequences of commands for multiple applications to run at once.

We are told that "this natural language understanding makes interacting with your smartphone easier and more intuitive", and naturally, Samsung promises that its "iterative deep learning technology" will see Bixby "improve over time to recognise your personal preferences and ways of speaking". The launch date was confirmed by Samsung through its posts on various social networking website such as Facebook and Twitter.

Bixby, which was launched in Korean in May and English in July, is an artificial intelligence-powered digital assistant available for Samsung's new flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. "In the future, Bixby will have the learning power to offer more intelligent and personalized interactions and seamless connections across more devices", Samsung said in a press release. Developed with deep learning technology, Bixby is created to improve over time by learning to recognize personal preferences and specific ways of speaking. Just hand over everything to Bixby just by using a command. The leak, which was earlier reported on by SamMobile, comes from Korea, where some promotional material points to the possibility of the high-capacity Galaxy Note 8 hitting store shelves.
