Bixby Voice is Now Officially Rolling Out in the US

19 July, 2017 Samsung Updates



After months of wait, the United States is now officially the first English-speaking nation to get a taste of Bixby's voice capabilities. Samsung has announced that the Bixby Voice functionalities are now rolling out to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus handsets across the States in the form of an OTA update. If you are in the United States and you own either the Galaxy S8 or the S8 Plus, check from Settings > Software Update > Download Updates Manually now, if you have not been prompted automatically for updating your device yet. If it's not there, don't worry, it will be in a few days' time.



After seeing a three month delay, the Bixby voice functionalities for the English language is finally out, although support for the Korean language has been out since May. It would be interesting to see if Samsung was indeed right about Bixby being able to handle complex commands or if it was all just marketing. If you are wondering what kind of complex commands we are talking about here, it will apparently be able to recognize natural language and will let you interact with third party apps like Facebook and Gmail without the user even needing to touch his/her phone once. Let us know how well it's working out for you if you already have it.
