Samsung's Bixby voice capabilities launched with 'Make for India' innovations

Samsung Set To Launch Android Oreo Beta For Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus

Samsung announced on Friday that it had started rolling out the Bixby Voice in India, a month after releasing the service in over 200 countries across the globe.

Samsung says that this is one of many steps in its Bixby expansion and improvement, as it plans to bring it to more "countries, languages, devices, features, and third-party applications".

This festive season, if you happen to buy a Samsung phone and and what if unfortunately, you happen to break the screen within a year of purchase? Bixby will automatically understand the cross-application command and will know that about which photo user is talking about and it follows the command.

Samsung Bixby is not available for all range of its smartphone, unlike Apple's "Siri" and Google's Assistant. In order to speak with Bixby, users can just hold the dedicated button on the respective Galaxy smartphone or simply say "Hi, Bixby" to interact with the Assistant. It's a smarter way to use your phone and get more done. Bixby has been optimised to understand Indian accents. But wait, it doesn't seem to be so, anymore, for select Samsung smartphones.

The development of Bixby voice capabilities for Indian consumers was carried out at Samsung Research & Development Institute, Bangalore (SRI-B), Samsung's largest R&D facility outside Korea. "Keeping in mind the diversity in Indian accents and our commitment to "Make for India", Bixby has been optimized to understand Indian accents". One of the most unique feature of bixby is the ability to handle in app commands too.
