Samsung Galaxy S8 to roll out Bixby for South Korea, and US users

By TechNadu Staff / May 2, 2017

Samsung has rolled out the voice command features on its Bixby Virtual assistant for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in South Korea.

The Voice command service began on Samsung at 1 pm KST on Monday, after sending a notice in the morning to users of the handsets. The company's artificial intelligence assistant "Bixby" rolled out on April 21 when the official sale of the S8 series began in South Korea.

Actually, at the time of launch voice command feature is absent. Samsung previously said it wanted to fully prepare before rolling out voice.

In India, the Galaxy S8 sales are expected to arrive on May 2, 2017, and currently, the phone is up for pre-order. And the review has also lacked the voice command feature, though the vision search, reminders, and other features of Bixby are working properly.

According to the earlier report of Wall Street Journal, the English version of Bixby won't be hitting the phone till the end of May. And they delayed the launch of the voice search feature due to issues with the performance.

There are some hiccups along the way. Some customers in the US have complained to the Samsung Authority Centre for the randomly rebooting of the Galaxy S8. The company take steps to improve the software feature update following user complaints of the smartphones having a "Red-Tinted Display" but there is no issue on the quality side.

This new handset will be available in US, Europe, though it looks the US users will get the voice command feature only by the end of May.
