Companies like Samsung rely on Android for their mobile devices. However, given that a lot of mobile hardware and software tend to be the same, companies try to set themselves apart by offering their own software services. For example, with Samsung, the company has their own alternative to the Google Play Store and Google Assistant.
Last year, Samsung kind of launched the Galaxy Home Mini. However, its launch was classified as a beta and it was only available in South Korea. It was expected that the company would launch the device at its Galaxy Unpacked event last week, but that did not happen. Instead, Samsung once again kind of launched the device as a bundle with Galaxy S20 orders.

That did not happen, but it seems that the speaker is actually now available, although not exactly in the way that many of us imagined.
Last year, Samsung kind of confirmed the existence of the Samsung Galaxy Home Mini when they launched a beta program for the smart speaker over in Korea. For those who are wondering when they might be actually able to get their hands on the speaker, you might be interested to learn that it will be soon.
When it comes to virtual assistants, depending on the phone and platform you use, you could be using any number of virtual assistants ranging from Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, and so on. But if there was a “world’s biggest” title when it comes to digital assistants, would Siri necessarily be a name that comes to mind?
Last year, Samsung announced their upcoming smart speaker in the form of the Galaxy Home. The speaker has yet to be released following a series of delays, but it looks like Samsung is already interested in creating some variants of it. The company has officially announced that over in South Korea, they will be launching a beta program for the Galaxy Home Mini.
There are many digital assistants in the market these days and just about every company seems interested in creating their own version. Samsung did so with Bixby, although admittedly it didn’t quite take off the way the company had intended, largely due to the fact that Bixby is pretty much limited to just Samsung devices.
Last year, Samsung took the wraps off its Galaxy Home smart speakers. This is Samsung’s attempt to break into the smart speaker market which is currently dominated by the likes of Amazon and Google, but unfortunately, the company could have a hard time doing so especially since the device has yet to be launched.

Samsung is finally letting users remap the Bixby button (aka Bixby Key) to launch other applications. We explain how to set it up, and even update Bixby if needed in easy steps.
One of the things that infuriated some Samsung handset owners was when Samsung introduced a dedicated hardware button that would launch Bixby. It was initially discovered that users could remap the button, but Samsung quickly put a stop to that. However with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung changed their minds and allowed users to remap it.
One of the annoying features in more recent Samsung phones is the dedicated Bixby hardware button. The idea behind it is that it will allow users to quickly launch the digital assistant at the touch of a button, but given that Bixby has been found to be lagging behind the competition, it’s not surprising that not many people want to use it.
Last year Samsung announced the Galaxy Home. This was Samsung’s attempt at breaking into the smart speaker market, but unfortunately, to date, the device has yet to be launched. It made an appearance at the FCC last year, but we haven’t heard anything about its release, at least until now.
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.
