Samsung Galaxy S8 to launch without Bixby's voice support

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Android flagships to launch without Bixby

Although it was supposed to launch with the new Galaxy S8 flagships, we now hear that the Bixby voice control features will not roll out in the US at the same time as the new Galaxy handsets, being scheduled to arrive "later this Spring" instead.

The last time we heard about Bixby, it was not good news for Samsung's German customers, who should wait at least until the end of the summer to get the voice control features for the Galaxy S8 handsets. Now, it looks like the US customers also have to wait for a while after the launch of the new flagship, although they are a bit luckier.

According to VentureBeat, Samsung provided the following statement when asked about the arrival of the company's virtual assistant and how it would compare to its tough competitors like Siri, Cortana, and Google Assistant: "Key features of Bixby, including Vision, Home and Reminder, will be available with the global launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 on April 21. Bixby Voice will be available in the U.S. on the Galaxy S8 later this spring."

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are already up for pre-order and in some countries, they are also reaching their new owners as we speak. Global retail availability is expected in about two weeks.

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.
