Samsung is finally doing what we’ve been expecting since the end of March, when Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus launched. The South Korean manufacturer is releasing Bixby Voice, the company’s digital assistant power to take vocal commands, in the United States #softwaremagic
In the past months, Samsung has been struggling to make Bixby more obedient and listen to voice commands that weren’t spoken just in Korean. The big hurdle was making it understand English, since most of their customers are English speakers. Well, it seems that now the digital assistant is ready to help with everything U.S. users need. But not all of them, though…
Only those who have signed up for the Bixby Early Access Program (announced last week) will start seeing the change today. If you’re one of them and Bixby is still ignoring you, make sure all your Samsung Apps are up to date. Once you do that, Bixby should be able to help you interact with a multitude of apps, taking shots and post them on Social Media or send your location to one of your friends:
If you didn’t have time to apply for the program, don’t worry – the public version should come out as early as July. Just keep an eye open for it.. or better yet, stay tuned and we’ll give you a heads up!
