Samsung is creating a smart speaker after all

Samsung is creating a smart speaker after all

The announcement comes at a time when Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy Note 8 in NY later today.

It must be clarified that Bixby was as such functioning on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but could not accept voice commands.

The functionality has been rolled out to 200 countries today including the UK, Canada and South Africa and is available in English (US) and Korean. Recognition of personal preferences will increase as time goes by, the company said. Users can ask Bixby to carry out tasks such as searching through a photo album, or send a picture that has just been taken to a contact.

Bixby is Samsung's answer to Amazon Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant.

In July the Wall Street Journal reported that a Samsung smart speaker was being developed; however, two weeks later the Korea Herald, also speaking with anonymous sources, said the project had been shelved because Samsung did not believe there was enough money in smart speakers.

Samsung plans to continue expanding Bixby's voice capabilities to additional countries, languages, devices, features and third-party applications.

Samsung does have the benefit of integrating Bixby into its own devices with its flagship phone having a dedicated Bixby button.

Bixby now recognizes U.S. English and Korean.

"A$3 s the Bixby ecosystem grows, it will use its completeness, context awareness and cognitive tolerance to evolve from a smartphone interface to the interface for your life", Rhee noted in a statement last month.
