While Samsung isn’t focusing on Bixby as much as it used to during its launch events, the company is still keeping its AI-powered voice assistant updated with new and improved features. Six months ago, the company completely redesigned Bixby’s UI and added support for Samsung DeX. The South Korean firm has now launched Bixby 3.0 […]
To say that Bixby hasn’t been faring too well in the first-generation AI assistant wars would be an understatement. As few are even thinking about Samsung’s voice-enabled companion these days. But does that mean Bixby’s on the losing side of the never-ending battle for market share? Not necessarily, especially if Samsung finds her a nice […]

Bixby, for all intents and purposes, has fallen by the wayside as far as Samsung’s priorities are concerned. It still exists on Galaxy phones and tablets and keeps getting updates, such as the UI makeover it received recently, but it’s clear that Samsung’s initial fervor for Bixby has turned lukewarm.

The move comes shortly after the company was said to have started considering deeper Google Assistant integrations into its devices. And while it’s still unclear whether Google finally coughed up enough billions for Samsung to agree to the […]
The Galaxy Home Mini just got a new firmware update to version V310XXU1ATE3. It weighs 11MB and it seemingly brings stability improvements along with some changes to Bixby integration.

Although the Galaxy S20 series features a 120Hz display, we all know there are some limitations to the way Samsung implemented this feature. For example, the 120Hz refresh rate doesn’t work in the Medium power saving mode. Well, it turns out that it’s technically possible to have both 120Hz and Medium power saving mode enabled with […]
