Samsung says Bixby is not fully ready for the global launch of the Galaxy S8 smartphones



Samsung proudly announced it’s new AI assistant Bixby at the official launch of the Galaxy S8 smartphone last month. At the event, the company showed us a couple of tricks that Bixby was capable of doing, however, they did mention that it wasn’t completely ready to work to its full potential. While it was announced that the AI assistant will be ready for the Global launch of the device, it now it looks like users will have to wait longer for it work properly.

According to a new report which we have from our source, it looks like the Bixby won’t be able to work to its full potential at the time of the global launch of the smartphones, which is April 21st. The company says that changes will be made and the updated Bixby assistant will be available in Spring this year. So what does it mean to the users who were looking forward to Bixby? Does it mean we won’t be able to do anything with that dedicated button on the side? Well, no. Basic tasks such as the visual search, reminder abilities will be available now.

Yes, the company says that key features of Bixby which they demonstrated at the launch like visual search, ability to remind you of something, etc. will work during the global launch. Users will be missing out the Bixby Voice at the time of the launch and it will be available later this Spring. Unfortunately, we don’t have a date for the same since the company declined to provide us with any, so it looks like we just have to wait until it becomes ready for the public rollout.

Now, if you ask is this a huge deal? The answer is yes. Apart from the Edge-to-Edge display, the only feature which the Samsung Galaxy S8 brings to the table is the new Bixby assistant. Also, assigning a separate button on the side of the device shows a huge commitment but it is indeed a shame that the company couldn’t manage to get it up and running on time for the global rollout. Yes, nobody wants a half-baked assistant to ruin the overall experience, but we at least expected a working version during the rollout.

Having said that, let us know what do you think about this? Now that you know Bixby won’t be available, would you be interested in buying it during the launch when it comes to India? Be sure to let us now by dropping a comment down below and also stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more details on this.
