It Will take a Long Time Before Bixby Voice Makes it to the US and Most Other Countries

4 July, 2017 Samsung


While the Galaxy S8 is without a doubt a pinnacle of achievement for Samsung Mobiles, it isn't without its flaws. However, I think one of the biggest flaws in the Galaxy S8 is not the fingerprint scanner but the way they managed the whole affair with Bixby. After investing so much into marketing their AI assistant and giving the phone a dedicated hardware button which just simply cannot be remapped to anything else, the S8 and S8+ were launched with a voice assistant that had no voice capabilities! Unfortunately, as per the Korea Herald, if you own a Galaxy S8/S8+ in the US or in any of the other English speaking nations around the world, you will likely not be seeing Bixby anytime soon.


In order to understand what exactly went wrong here, take a note of the following points.


• Samsung did not have sufficient Big Data available to them at that time to enable the voice functions of Bixby


• This happened because Samsung adopted Big Data integration much later than its competition


• There's a huge language barrier in between Samsung's English speaking developers and Korean developers which is making communication difficult


If you are wondering when you can expect Bixby voice communication to finally make its appearance on your S8 or S8+, the time is expected to be somewhere during the fourth quarter of the year.
