Named Bixby, the virtual assistant of Samsung seems to have enormous potential But in fact, what is it really useful

What is Bixby?

Bixby is the next-generation virtual assistant built into Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8 + . It comes to compete with Microsoft Cortana, Siri, Amazon Alexa or other Google Wizard.

For now, it lacks a number of features but it already knows how to do a lot of things. Yes, but here: for the moment, Bixby Voice does not yet understand French. And it may not be the case before 2018 ...

Samsung sees great

Samsung has great ambitions for its AI integrated to the interface of the new Galaxy S8 and S8 + . A specific physical button has even been created on the right side of the phone.

For now, Bixby is integrated into ten applications of the S8: phone application, SMS, settings, camera, contacts, gallery, reminders and Google Play Music. And the principle is simple: if you need information on anything, just press the button and ask the question to Bixby.

Bixby Voice, Bixby Home and Bixby Vision

The Samsung Virtual Assistant is actually divided into three distinct parts: Bixby Voice, Bixby Home and Bixby Vision.

With Bixby Voice , we get closer to Siri ... in theory. Because the problem is that, for now, he understands only the Korean. It just controls the phone settings, activate the camera ... But according to Samsung, anything that can be done in tactile can also be vocal. It remains to learn Korean ...

Bixby Home , meanwhile, is closer to Google Assistant, with access to weather, news, videos ... The area is customizable and predictive insofar Bixby remembers what You do regularly.

Finally, Bixby Vision is a camera that recognizes objects and words. This assistant can identify text or objects or even recognize a monument from a photo. All you need to do is point a building and Bixby offers everything you are interested in nearby.
He can also recognize texts, watches, bottles of wine ... He can read QR Codes and even translate texts in real time. But here too, one must be satisfied with the Korean language to this day . Bottles of wine ... He can read QR Codes and even translate texts in real time. But here too, one must be satisfied with the Korean language to this day . Bottles of wine ...

Promises to be confirmed

On paper, Bixby is supposed to understand the context to help you the best. Currently integrated with the Galaxy S8 and S8 +, Bixby could have other uses in the future. Moreover, those who already own an older Galaxy can upgrade to use this application .

If you speak Korean, you can ask Bixby to change the orientation of a photo, start a video on a connected screen ... but you can not choose the recipient of an email or answer a question about The age of a celebrity for example.

So there is still a lot more to learn so that the Samsung wizard becomes a useful companion on a daily basis. And above all a language easier to tame for us,

samsung, application, mobile, high tech,
