Although the Galaxy S8 and S8+ flagships are available in the US and Bixby should have been ready at launch as well, it looks like Samsung's virtual assistant is facing English syntax and grammar issues and fixing them might take a while.

As far as we can tell at this stage, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are pretty reliable. However, Samsung's latest flagships seem to have serious problems in the software department.

Although this is not the first time we hear of a Bixby-related problem, the most recent issue that affects the artificial intelligence-driven virtual assistant is severe. According to insiders familiar with this matter who spoke to The Wall Street Journal, Bixby's US launch has been delayed due to English syntax and grammar-related problems that surfaced during testing.

The same sources mentioned above also revealed that Samsung's virtual assistant is now at least a few weeks away from finally reaching the "ready to launch" stage. The last time Samsung mentioned Bixby's US launch schedule, they said "later this spring" and now it is clear that will never happen. Remains to see if they manage to solve the issues and launch it by the end of June or at least by mid-July.

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.
