It is also available in Poland on PLUS carrier. Just got an update. I have Galaxy S8+.
you can already used bixby voice on the galaxy s8+ on T-Mobile. Ive received the update for bibxy few week ago. they finally have it on English .
It's ridiculous for Samsung to block this is the US market until they actually get Bixby working here. Quite lame.
Its just en extra button dont wamt it dont use it simple s8 is samsung phone they have the right to program it anyway they want but it would be pretty useful if it is user reprogammable

With their kind of attitude they can't finalize anything, software is an order of mag itude harder than hardware and they treat it on the same level. Like any past Samsung's attempts on software , Bixby will fail.
Software is hard, expensive and has a huge overhead on personnel. Things that Samsung is unable or unwilling to pay attention to.
Basically why I never buy Samsung unless they are unlockable (increasingly they're less so). Their great hardware is kept down by the software. Each generation they are the slowest by far, most restricted android , bad colours in photos ... A great looking product with sub par feeling, experience of using it. Exactly what you would expect from a company over hear head.
For that alone there are much better phones out there...
What is wrong with Samsung? They promised factory-enabled button remmaping, and only they didn't deliver on that, they are activly blocking software that tries to do so?? Get your grip together Samsung.
To say it again and again. If Samsung wants the dedicated Bixby hard button to be only and exclusively for their Bixby virtual assistant (& so not remapped), it's okay, I mean the S8 (duo, etc) is their creation. But AT LEAST they must completely finalize it (until then), and sooner rather than later, and not just blocking the remapping.
