Samsung declared the accessibility of Bixby’s voice for users in India. Samsung disclosed that the users of Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+can update Bixby to get this feature. The company mentioned that Bixby Voice can be used in US English in India. Even, the company have worked to optimize Bixby Voice to understand Indian accents.
Samsung’s own digital assistant is Bixby, taking on the likes of Google Assistant, Siri, Alexa and Cortana. However, while other voice assistants can only perform basic tasks, Bixby permits you to do a lot more. Previously on this year, the company disclosed Bixby’s features. Displayed that it can be personalized a lot more when differentiating from other digital assistants out there.
Mr Asim Warsi, Samsung India’s Senior VP, Mobile Business, said, “At Samsung, we listen to our consumers and bring in meaningful innovations that help make their lives better. With Bixby, the phone adapts to you and not the other way around. It’s a smarter way to use your phone and get more done. Keeping in mind the diversity of Indian accents and our commitment to ‘Make for India’, Bixby has been optimized to understand Indian accents.
One of the ways in which you can personalize Bixby for your requirements is Quick Commands. It permits you to create custom commands which can be used instead of a sequence of one or more commands. Essentially, custom commands can be shortcuts for a long sequence of commands, making it easy to use Bixby.
Another important distinguishing quality that Bixby boasts of is performing tasks in different applications. Samsung mentions that you can use voice to perform almost every action in an app if it is Bixby-enabled. While Google Assistant can also be used to perform tasks like opening an app, its support for performing tasks within an app is quite primitive when compared to Samsung Bixby.
