In today’s society, we are always looking for ways to make life simpler, and more efficient. One way technology has helped people with this is voice-powered assistants on mobile phones. The latest AI system to join the voice assistant competition is the “Bixby,” which is part of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.
So how is Bixby different from other voice assistants such as Cortana and Siri? For starters, it is supposed to change the way you interact with your phone, and it does this by operating with apps and being more versatile. However, before you go out and purchase the new Samsung to try this app, there are some things you need to know about the product.
To be an efficient consumer, it is important to do some research and see what products are available. For example, it is a good idea to take a look at all the voice- assistant features.
What does Bixby do?
First of all, the Bixby will be able to support any application, and whatever task it needs to do. Therefore, it makes the feature more complete and less confusing for the user. According to the Samsung website, Bixby will be able to understand a command, even if it is incomplete.
Another major difference with Bixby is you will be able to call on it at any time, while you are using any of the Bixby applications. You can continue any work you have been doing without being interrupted, and you can use any touch or voice requests during the application.
Moreover, when you compare Bixby to other voice assistants, Siri and Google assistant respond to general queries. On the other hand, the reason Bixby stands out is how it functions, and most other agents only support a few tasks for each application.
Bixby will make it easier for consumers to understand how it works, and it will understand what the user is saying. Most other voice assistants may get confused when switching between tasks, and it will have to start over.
Samsung Galaxy S8: What other functions will Bixby boast?
So what other functions will Bixby have? To begin, it will have a Bixby button which means you could use Bixby to make a phone call. This will yield faster results, and it will be more efficient.
Furthermore, it will have a voice successor and a visual and contextual search too. This means that it will give answers based on context, as well as a visual search on the camera tool. You can use this feature to search for an object too. It will even capture an image on the camera and analyze the image.
It has to be confirmed, but there may be a feature called BixbyPay, which will allow you to pay for items by using voice commands. However, Bixby applications do not just stop with phones. We may see Bixby control air conditioners and televisions in the future, but there is no set date.
The launch date as of now is March 29, and we have yet to see if it will stand the test of time.
