Samsung had a tough time getting its latest innovation ‘Bixby’ to the masses, but now this voice assistant is easily accessible in more than 200 countries which includes UK, Australia, Canada and South Africa as well. It has been available in South Korea and the US since July, where it was launched after months of delays.
Samsung claims that the voice assistant learns over time, recognizing “natural language” which makes interaction with one’s phone much more easier and intuitive. It is smart enough to understand cross-application commands. It can be accessed easily irrespective of what you’re already doing on-screen. Users will also be able to create custom voice commands. Instead of setting an alarm and turning on do-not-disturb mode individually, one can simply use the term “good night” to get the both tasks done simultaneously.
Bixby had already promised a lot which can seen in the form of a huge hype among the masses for the assistant. But, the drawback of this assistant lies in its ability to understand only English and Korean language. Although, the voice assistant has been made accessible in more than 200 countries, it can be only used by English and Korean language speakers. Samsung has declared that it’ll get additional language support “in time”.
The drawback will definitely affect the popularity of this voice assistant among the speakers of other languages but Gadgetupdates.in would like to suggest them all to wait and hopes that the wait will be actually worth it. May this move help Samsung to score a plus point in the present highly competitive market and make its users satisfied with it more than before.
