about time to it was wrong that they released it not working shame on samsung
Sam Seung, 19 Aug 2017It was never advertised to be available at launch of the S8.Well they advertised with their great infinity display and their great bixby..
meh. svoice version 2. what most people will do after buying galaxies is : disable the svoice v2 (a.k.a bixby).
Bixby release should be on 22nd August, 1 day prior to the release of Note 8
AnonD-675629, 19 Aug 2017Wow, 4 months after release they finish the thing they advertised with.. Great Shamesung!It was never advertised to be available at launch of the S8.
AnonD-595132, 19 Aug 2017Google Assistant isn't half as capable as Bixby. And this is just the first version of Bixby. ... moreBixby refrigerator give me a bear?...Bixby washing machine make my t-shirt look like new?...Bixby oven make a lasagna?...an virtual assistant MAY be useful on a phone, tablet or wearable, but outside them is not worth it...because you can use it on your phone instead to control those devices
S8's software (Bixby) is not totally ready half and year after the release...when a Pixel device is released his software is already global(at least for Google devices, the other companies are lazier)
Checked the updates manualy and it just appeared ( i live in Hungary) so did the updates but nothing has changed, Bixby has the recomended cards but nothing more yet. We still have to wait for the server to activate the functions.
My S8 just got bixby and S7 edge just got Google Assistant in India.
Hey guys bixby is only for s8 and s8+ or it is for all samsung mobile ?
Google Assistant isn't half as capable as Bixby. And this is just the first version of Bixby.
Google Assistant wil only be installed on your smartphone an maybe some wearables.
Bixby on: smartphones, wearables, refrigerators, washing machines, VR, ovens, airco's, TV's, sound equipment, IOT devices, home security and with acquiring Harman Kardan the automotive industry Big Time!!!
ONLY one assistant and allways the same assistant no matter what device you're talking to. Bixby will get to know you better and better and will need less input over time to understand what you mean and what your preferences are.
Read this in-depth article from Brian Roemele on Quora.com why Bixby is far far more advanced and capable than for example Sir, Cortana and Google Now.
I have sim free S8+, no update on BIxby UK for me. From what I understand each countries servers are waiting updating so that each country can be pinged message to handset for updating Bixby.
After all i still belive that Bixby will be fun. I have my s+ since the realy beginning and it serves well with google assistance but if Bixby will do his job with the voice control than i will be more then happy. Everybody just complaining about the delay but i don't care about it - the phone is good and Bixby will give it a boost.
So much resources wasted on a feature most people want to replace with another app shortcut and duplicated in many ways by Google Assistant...
Meanwhile, we're still waiting for Cortana in Ireland. Because we apparently don't even speak English here... :)
Note 8 is about to release before that Samsung wants to release Bixby to the global customers else SALES of NOTE 8 may affect... That's what... Samsung is one of the biggest Business magnet in Mobile world... If note 8 is not release this month, Samsung may not thing about Bixby for global customers even...
