Today Samsung announced that their own voice assistant, Bixby is now rolling out to an additional 200 countries worldwide.
It still only supports US English and Korean, so in some of those places the language used might be a bit too Amercian for you, or you might not understand it at all.
Despite that, it is still great news to hear that it is finally available to more users after around 4 months since its launch.
With this, owners of Samsung’s smartphones will be able to take advantage of Samsung’s voice assistant software, which not only does what other voice assistant’s do along with Samsung’s special features, such as Bixby Voice, which allows you to control your smartphone’s features and functions with your voice instead of touch.
Bixby also has context-aware features that allow it to carry out better conversations that are progressive.
Samsung also says that Bixby will also learn and understand your personal way of speaking over time, making the assistant a little more personal.
For now, though, it’s only going to do that if you speak English and have either a Galaxy S8 or a Galaxy S8+.
We expect this to be rolled out to more devices in the future with more languages as well.
