Samsung smart speaker reportedly on the way

Samsung smart speaker reportedly on the way

On the flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone and Note 8 device, a function called Bixby Home is available.

The latest Bixby Voice update allows Galaxy S8 series owners to perform nearly every task, even conventional touch gesture commands, on their phone using just the voice. Samsung had to admit that there was lacuna in the coordination between the 200-strong technical team based out of U.S. and the one back in South Korea.

Bixby now recognizes U.S. English and Korean.

"In the future, Bixby will have the learning power to offer more intelligent and personalized interactions and seamless connections across more devices", he added. Users can ask Bixby to carry out tasks such as searching through a photo album, or send a picture that has just been taken to a contact.

Donated glasses do not have to be those sold by the stores; they could have been purchased from any retailer. If you've heard rumors that the solar filters on eclipse glasses expire after 3 years, ignore them.

Ultimately, Samsung would want to make Bixby a ideal digital assistant so that it can compete on level with Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant, besides SIRI.

"Natural language understanding allows Bixby to continuously improve its ability to interpret regional dialects", Samsung said.

Bixby has a few great features but perhaps the most interesting is that it is contextually aware. Samsung mobile's CTO previously said it will expand availability of the virtual assistant to other devices at a later date.

"A$3 s the Bixby ecosystem grows, it will use its completeness, context awareness and cognitive tolerance to evolve from a smartphone interface to the interface for your life", Rhee noted in a statement last month.
