While some elements of Bixby will be included in the April 21 launch, the headline voice activation feature won't be available in the USA until "later this spring", Samsung said in a statement.
There's some bad news for those who were waiting to experience Samsung's new voice functionality - the service will not be available when the Galaxy S8 launches on 21 April. "Bixby Voice will be available in the USA on the Galaxy S8 later this spring", Samsung's statement reads.
Bixby is facing some stiff competition from other AI features like Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, Google Assistant and Microsoft's Cortana.
Speaking to Silicon, a Samsungspokesperson said: "All Bixby functionality, bar the Voice Function, will be available to United Kingdom customers at launch". That's why you should be aware of an announcement that Samsung made today regarding the GS8. Users can still use Bixby to manage their daily affairs and provide recommendations, and the use of visual search which is powered by Pinterest's Lens technology is available.
This puts it a month at least past the Galaxy S8'srelease, which will leave the phone without one of its main features, and little use for the dedicated hardware button on the side of the device.
Bixby Voice is more than just another feature for Samsung's voice assistant.
Samsung's newly launched Galaxy S8 Smartphone is at peak now. Hopefully, the Samsung Galaxy S8 features update for the Bixby app will be out soon. We unfortunately don't know exactly why Bixby Voice is taking longer than the other Bixby-related features at this time.
The outlet further added that Samsung's Display division has been gradually ramping up its screen tech research efforts, with plans to roll out a limited batch of foldable handsets in the latter half of this year. Are any of you planning on grabbing a Galaxy S8?
