Although Samsung's answer to Apple Siri and Google Assistant only made its debut with support for English and Korean, the South Korean giant has just confirmed that Bixby is scheduled to become available in Germany by the end of 2017.

After spending quite a long time in the rumor mill, the new virtual assistant by Samsung made its debut on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships, just as expected. Sadly, its language support is very limited at this time - only English and Korean. However, Samsung has big plans for its AI-driven assistant and has just confirmed that German will be included in the list of supported languages by the end of the year.

Last week, Samsung Germany posted an answer to the big question about the full Bixby availability on the local market that simply reads "The full functionality of Bixby is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2017 in Germany." This information was published in the FAQ section of Samsung Deutschland.

On the other hand, reports that Bixby might arrive in Germany next to the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 since this handset is also scheduled to launch in the last quarter. For now, there is no information about Bixby's arrival in other markets, but we are keeping an eye on this story, so stay tuned.
