Although this feature was supposed to be available at the same time as Samsung's Galaxy S8 duo, Bixby Voice had to face some English grammar and syntax issues that delayed its arrival in the US even more, but now it is finally rolling out.
Codrut Nistor,

Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are very successful so far, at least in terms of sales. Sadly, those who expected to get Bixby Voice support at launch had to wait for quite a long time for it to happen, not to mention the fact that a few markets that were supposed to get localized Bixby support now have to wait at least a few extra weeks, if not months.

Fortunately for members of the Bixby Early Access Program, the service rolls out at least to the Galaxy S8/S8+ owners who are part of this program. Droid Life author Kellen took Bixby Voice for a spin and posted the movie that shows the entire ordeal on YouTube. The video can be easily enjoyed by clicking the thumbnail at the end of this article.

Bixby Voice arrived in South Korea last month. In the US, Galaxy S8 units on Verizon were sold without a fully functional Amazon function in Bixby. Fortunately, the problem was solved, and the service was live once again in less than a month.

We will probably get back to Bixby Voice once it launches for all Android smartphone users, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
