Samsung Bixby Now Covers Over 200 Markets, But Rivals Are Still Ahead

Samsung Pay tops 2 tn won in transactions in 2 years

For this, the South Korean giant has claimed that, this new Bixby Voice Assistant will "continuously improve its ability to interpret regional dialects". Samsung has announced that Bixby Voice, its assistant-slash-intelligent-interface, is going to be available in more than 200 countries starting today, including Canada, the UK, Australia, and South Africa.

However, at launch in Australia, Bixby was effectively mute because its voice-assistance feature only worked in US and South Korean locations. But Bixby has only been trained in U.S. English, which means Samsung can't promise it will understand your particular brand of English, while the company is hesitant to big-up Bixby's language skills too much at the moment.

If you own a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus and your language is US English or Korean, you can start using Bixby Voice by pressing the dedicated button on the device.

We have heard from some of the reliable sources that, Samsung has now pulled the server side button for initiating the Bixby Voice Global launch. Pre-installed apps on the two smartphones are also being updated, such as E-mail, Samsung Knox, Messaging, and Calendar. It's the natural language you communicate with Bixby that Samsung believes is the key to getting a leg up on the competition.

Samsung further explains that "Bixby understands cross-application commands and should know which photo you are referring to and text it to your Mum".

With expectations of Galaxy Note 8 coming out tomorrow, it is quite plausible that the upcoming device will have Bixby voice assistant support with a couple of extra features. Australian phones - those with IMEIs sold in Australia - will have the update to Bixby progressively rolled out, and the contextual voice activation will be its centrepiece.

After arriving in the USA a month ago, Samsung today announced that its voice assistant has now gone global.

Users can set specific voice command to trigger certain actions. When an application becomes Bixby-enabled, Bixby will support nearly every task that the application is capable of performing using voice, touch or text.
