Samsung has prematurely confirmed on its website that it plans to not only launch a standalone online payment platform — dubbed Samsung Pay Mini — but will also be providing its long-rumored digital assistant Bixby with the facility process payments as part of the next Samsung Pay Beta build.

We’ve known that the firm has been working on a stripped down version of Samsung Pay that can only be used to make online payments on websites for a while now, but Bixby’s integration is fresh news. It’s unclear how exactly it’ll work, but we’re hoping you’ll be able to say something along the lines of, “Bixby, send $30 to Carlos.”

Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when the latest beta version of Samsung Pay will be released, but speculation suggests that it’ll arrive alongside the Galaxy S8, so that users can take advantage of the Bixby functionality, though what with all the controversy surrounding the handset’s release date, there’s no telling how soon that’ll be.
