Bixby Voice officially starts rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ in US

19 July 2017
Effectively, that means Bixby now offers full voice capabilities for US English.

Sort by:

Haven't used google voice or Cortana once in over 3 years

Now Sammy can officially get rid of it.

Nice videos, although some of them look too good to be true.

harsenik, 19 Jul 2017And nowhere to be seen on S7/S7 Edge... WTF Samsung?!?!It doesn't matter to them if they support your phone or not anymore, they have your money, and that's all that matters to them.

At that rate I'm not ready to see it in my language in my country (my country is mostly English, however a non-negligible part of it speaks another language)

Harsenik, 19 Jul 2017They need to do something to compete Alexa, Siri, Cortana a... moreNo they don't. It's like Tizen OS or Valve's Steam machines. They're trying to reinvent the wheel and they're really bad at it.

They should focus on developing better hardware, like better batteries. Also, bring back the freakin ir blaster.

Their software department is terrible and they should leave well enough alone.

Hearing people talk to their phone, asking it for the weather... is totally annoying, not "cool"!

GenX, 19 Jul 2017What about other countries ??Yes in fact, as I said (previously), hopefully Samsung will include an even more updated version (more languages, faster, more reliable, etc) of Bixby with the launch of the Note 8.

Xz8441, 19 Jul 2017If those ads/videos are true, Bixby would be far more usabl... morewhat part of feature are you talking about?
most of them are already on google assistant and they work
must faster / intuitive without samsung's crappy software
the only thing they got over google assistant is that take a picture / find a product to buy
this is not true and not working properly... that feature never even worked / launched
in South Korea even they only showcased it with some of pre-selected items at their demo room
Once again, Samsung is releasing their half-ass software ever after all these months since S8 release

Yes absolutely, definitely it's a good news . What's more, obviously now it is already much more better than before (introduced with the S8 duo). But still there's a lot more to be polished, etc. But hopefully at least Samsung will include an even more updated version of Bixby with the launching of the Note 8.

maybe it will be ready years from now. when the S8 will already be unsupported for years

JMTM, 19 Jul 2017who cares... you are not missing anything Its bixby... no... moreIf those ads/videos are true, Bixby would be far more usable than Google Assistant.

Of all Samsung gimmicks, this one is by far the most useless. It's even more useless than curved screens. But I understand why they made it. Gotta sell new crap on something.
