Samsung will reportedly miss its own deadline for the launch of Bixby Voice in the US

The launch of Bixby Voice, the best aspect of Samsung’s AI-powered digital voice assistant, was delayed in the US. It was supposed to be launched along with the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but the launch was delayed by the company to spring in the US. However, Samsung will reportedly miss its own deadline.

According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, Bixby’s voice module won’t be ready by the end of June and that the software is struggling to reliably understand English, let alone entertaining you with some rap skills like it does in Korean. The publication also is reporting that Samsung will only be able to launch Bixby Voice sometime in summer, which starts on June 21st.

There are multiple aspects of Bixby – Bixby Hello, Bixby Vision, and Bixby Voice – but Bixby Voice is the most promising one. It can be used to perform any action on the phone without ever touching the display. The company released five videos of Bixby performing actions based on complicated voice commands. Bixby Voice was launched in Korea last month.

Bixby voice better be amazing or there is no way you will get buy-in from consumers. I love my S8+ but have completely forgotten about Bixby. If it rolls out and has issues or is not very useful kiss it goodby.

“multiple aspects of Bixby – Bixby Now, Bixby Vision, and Bixby Voice”

There is no such thing as Bixby Now, it’s Hello Bixby

Pathetic and we’ll have to wait another 3 years for it to be available in UK English.
