Galaxy S8 and S8+ have officially arrived. And with this ends the era of leaks about these two devices. Honestly, the device has turned out to be everything we expected it to be and we just love what we see. But not what we hear from Bixby, the AI assistant on Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Well, undoubtedly whatever we have seen or read about Bixby makes it the new age voice assistant which comes with much sophisticated features, but when it comes to language support, we are honestly disappointed. Bixby is said to support only two languages as of now-English and Korean.
Although, this is at par with Google Assistant (on Pixel phones) which also supports two languages-English and German, Apple’s Siri easily scores over it with support for 36 languages.
Again, Samsung did mention that more language support will follow for Bixby, but did not specify the time-frame or the languages. Based on a past leak, we can state that Samsung will be empowering Bixby to support over 7 languages including German, Chinese and a few others.
If Samsung is looking at a pan-global domination with its latest flagship phones Galaxy S8 and S8+, making Bixby friendly with languages from diverse regions is a must do. And that too before its arch rival Apple comes out with next-gen iPhone 8, which we believe will be shipped with upgraded AI capabilities.
