It was reported a couple of months ago that Samsung would be expanding the language support for its Bixby virtual assistant. Ahead of the Galaxy S10 event later today, the company appears to have made a server side switch to add support for more languages to its virtual assistant.

Samsung rolled out a significant update for Bixby with the Galaxy Note 9. The phablet brought Bixby 2.0 which not only came with a new user interface but also enabled new integrations and added support for new languages in beta.

The languages that were being tested for future support in Bixby included French, Italian, Spanish, and German. These happen to be some of the most widely spoken languages around the world so users will certainly be delighted to see them being supported.

Bixby users can now find these new languages in the assistant right away. The list of supported languages mentions German, Spanish, and Italian. French is still listed as being in beta but it’s supported nonetheless.

It doesn’t seem like an update was released for Bixby today which suggests that the support for these additional languages has been added through a server side change. Bixby already has support for Korean and Mandarian in addition to U.S. and UK English.
