Samsung’s artificial intelligence Bixby which debuted with 2017 flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and S8+ has attracted all kinds of attention. Although based on the combined concept of voice, touch, and text, at the time of its launch Samsung announced that the the full-fledged service of Bixby with all these three features will be rolled out later. And the time has finally come as the Korean company will be launching the Voice service for Bixby today.
Through Bixby, Samsung has provided services such as ‘Bixby Vision’ and ‘Bixby Home’ in Samsung Galaxy S8 series. However, these services were delayed because the Bixby voice was not fully prepared for launch. But with the roll out of Bixby Voice service starting today, all these features too will get activated adding to the enhanced UX of Galaxy S8 and S8+ users.
Yonhapnews quoted Samsung as saying earlier: “Bixby Voice is going through an iterative process to build up a user’s voice, instructions, and other knowledge through a learning engine called Deep Learning.”
The Galaxy S8 series is currently under constant scrutiny due to various quality issues such as red screen, Wi-Fi connection failure, reboot. Voice is a key function of Bixby and if it does not work smoothly after its launch it can cause a major image damage for Samsung.
