Although this virtual assistant is now available virtually everywhere, the only two languages supported remain US English and Korean for now. Additional languages and devices should get Bixby support in the future, but the details are not yet public.

Samsung has just unleashed Bixby worldwide, expanding its reach "to more than 200 countries and territories worldwide, allowing millions of consumers to experience a smarter way to interact with their phones." Unfortunately, this does not mean any new language is now supported because Bixby still recognizes just US English and Korean speech.

Bixby can be activated using the dedicated button on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, but it also shows up when saying "Hi, Bixby" as clear as needed to be "understood" by the voice assistant. As it usually happens with such services, Bixby's availability depends on carrier and country. The engine does not recognize all accents and dialects at this time, but it is expected to improve in time.

According to Samsung, Bixby's voice capabilities are expected to reach new countries, languages, as well as new devices. New features should be introduced in the future, while more and more third-party apps will get support for Bixby.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
