The key feature was expected to a presentation on the new flagship handset, but the Tech giants Samsung is now saying Bixby will not be operational on the US version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus once they ship to users starting April 21.
“Key features of Bixby, including Vision, Home, and Reminder, will be available with the global launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Smartphone on April 21,” Samsung said in a statement. “Bixby Voice will likely be available in the US on the Galaxy S8 later this spring.”
At the launch, Bixby will have Vision that can expose what users are viewing at and take performance according to what they see, but the Voice feature that lets you check their phone using voice will not be available in the U.S. major conclusions and to-do tasks, and several other countries only in the source. Samsung has not mentioned the reason for a delay.
Bixby Voice will not be in the launch version in the UK either. “All Bixby functionality, bar the Voice Role, will not be available to UK customers at launch. Bixby Voice will likely be available in US English later this spring, and will increase to extra languages globally over time,” a Samsung spokesperson in the UK said in the news.
Likewise, Australians will also need to wait for Samsung’s practical assistant. At the Australian ship of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, Samsung said Bixby Voice would be coming to Australia “in the following months.” Samsung Australia said that Samsung was running with local language specialists to ensure Bixby would be experienced for Aussies.
