Samsung hyped up Bixby quite a bit on March 29th when it unveiled the Galaxy S8. The voice interface is one of the biggest features of its new flagship smartphone. Samsung claimed that Bixby Voice will enable users to do everything they can do with a touch input by simply using voice commands. Ironically, this feature was not ready at launch when the Galaxy S8 came out on April 21st. However, Samsung launched it in South Korea yesterday and it has now released some new videos which demonstrate what Bixby Voice is capable of.
Samsung has uploaded five new videos on its official YouTube channel that demonstrate precisely what Bixby Voice is capable of doing. We can see that it comes up at once when the dedicated Bixby button on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is pressed.
The videos show Bixby performing multiple tasks, including launching the camera app, finding images on the user’s command, and even rotating those images. It’s even possible to select multiple images and share them with friends all using voice commands.
The other videos demonstrate several other features that include replying to messages, composing new messages, and more. Bixby Voice is capable of doing all this and more. It goes without saying that its capabilities will only be improved in the months to come.
Bixby Voice has only been released for users in South Korea right now but Samsung has said that it’s going to release Bixby Voice in the United States later this spring.
