Samsung Bixby is now available in 200 markets but still only speaks 2 languages
Bixby is a new method that you can use in your Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+. It allows you to use voice, text or touch to state what you need since Bixby understands these three commands. When you’re lost for words, you just have to open your camera and Bixby will look for it. These aspects were included in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. It has the ability to handle the tasks that you are normally doing on your mobile phone.
Samsung has announced that the new Bixby voice capabilities are now accessible in more than 200 countries worldwide, including South Africa, Australia, Canada and United Kingdom.
In the month of May, Bixby is now available in Korea and last month Bixby is now also available in United States.
Just a day before Samsung launch their latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 the company has announced that voice assistant will now available in Korea and United States and now in over 200 countries.
According to Samsung, in addition to Korea and Unites States, other consumers across the universe including Australia, Canada, South Africa and United Kingdom will be able to use the intelligent interface to aid them easily finish the things they are doing.
Consumers thought that they will expect a lot from Bixby, the voice assistants is still behind its opponent, like Siri, Google Assistant and Cortana. These voice assistants can speak several language compare to Samsung’s voice assistant that has only two available languages, the United States English and Korean. Because of this many consumers complain that why Samsung set the expectation too high for Bixby. The voice enabled artificial intelligence assistant played a very significant role in the introduction of Galaxy S8’s few months ago but is now nowhere to be found.
Another issue is that Bixby speak English, but only United States English it means there is a possibility that it cannot understand the accents and expressions that you are going to speak. Bixby must understand natural language to improve its ability to understand regional dialects but Bixby needs more time to fully understand the regional dialects being used.
Bixby is now still behind of its opponents, but surely Samsung will continue to improve their voice assistants.
According to Injhong Ree, the executive vice president of Samsung Electronics that “The development of Bixby’s voice capabilities is only just the beginning step in the continued rollout of Bixby functionality. He also said that in the next years, Bixby will have the power, which is capable of presenting more intelligent and tailored interactions and faultless connections across more devices.
The Samsung manufacturer said that the capabilities of voice assistants will expand in different countries, can be run in different devices, will surely understand different languages, and third party apps. But at this moment voice assistant will only be available only for Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus.
Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus users, who want to use Bixby’s voice capabilities, press the assigned button or just simply say “Hi Bixby”.
