Samsung Galaxy S8 to launch without one key feature!
Samsung Galaxy S8 to launch without one key feature!
16 Abril, 2017, 10:45
Competition in the virtual assistant space is intense as Bixby will be up against the likes of Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) Siri, Amazon's (NASDAQ: AMZN) Alexa and the Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Assistant, which is native to the Android operating platform that will run on the Galaxy S8 handsets.
Samsung has confirmed that it will be shipping the Galaxy S8 without one of the device's hallmark feature - Bixby voice assistant. While there is also no confirmation as to when users will be able to use the feature, it is likely that owners of the Galaxy S8 will have to wait until later this spring for a software update to get their hands on a full-fledged Bixby. Samsung is "proudly" claiming that Bixby is the most intelligent virtual assistant on the market yet, capable of performing tasks that other virtual assistants can not.
During the announcement of the Galaxy S8 in March, Samsung positioned Bixby as one of the key signature additions - alongside the edge-to-edge Infinity Display - to the Galaxy line of smartphones.
In a response to the Journal, Samsung said some Bixby features will be available when the S8 hits US shelves on April 21, but voice-activated Bixby services won't be an option until late spring.
Wait is over for April the giraffe, YouTube star and new mom
Today, all that waiting has FINALLY paid off: After 15 months (yes, FIFTEEN months) with child, April has finally given birth . There had been false starts before, but not far away in a pen in upstate NY , two hooves were peeking out of April's backside.
This shouldn't be a surprise, considering that creating voice-based AI assistants isn't easy, so a beta version of Bixby is definitely expected.
Bixby is content aware meaning that, provided you are within a compatible app, users can refer directly to items on-screen. At launch, the company had said that people would be able to do things like edit or rotate a photo and play a video by simply using their voice. While several features will work on worldwide versions, those that rely on voice activation and control won't operate, because Samsung apparently hasn't perfected Bixby's understanding of English yet. "Bixby Voice will be available in the US on the Galaxy S8 later this spring".
