JANUARY 08, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: On January 8, 2019, attendees check Bixby-enabled gadgets at the Samsung exhibit at CES 2019 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES, the world’s biggest annual consumer electronics trade show, continues until January 11 and comprises more than 180,000 guests and 4,500 exhibitors showcasing their latest goods and services. Indeed, Bixby is still living and well, with additional abilities that enhance the user experience.

According to XDA Developers, Samsung cares about the virtual assistant specific to their smartphones, even though it is not as famous as Siri, Google Assistant, or Amazon’s Alexa. Samsung flagship phones even included a Bixby button in the early years of the virtual assistant, something Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Pixel did not have. Bixby is not going anywhere, as evidenced by the recent release, which Sam Mobile originally noticed.

Google Assistant Feature in Samsung Bixby

Bixby received a substantial design change in the most recent version, which Google Assistant consumers will recognize. When you summon the virtual assistant, it will not take up the entire screen as Siri does.

Comparable to Google’s virtual assistant, the result of a user’s question will only appear as a smaller tile prompting below the interface. The solution is only visible for at least 15 seconds. However, if a user prefers, the default value can be changed to a longer time.

Google Assistance has recently been at the center of a scandal. After, an Asian news outlet reported that the tech giant confirmed that its virtual assistant collects audio even when it is not activated.

Siri Feature in Samsung Bixby

Bixby, on the other hand, is receiving a new function. This time, it is a feature included in Apple’s Siri – a personalized recommendation tool.

In the new settings page, Bixby users will need to enable the “Personalized Bixby” option. The new function gathers the user’s preferences to make relevant recommendations.

Additional Features for Samsung Bixby Update

According to GSM Arena, Samsung’s virtual assistant makes Bixby’s setup even easier and less bothersome.

The update removes the voice training component of the initial setup. This component required users to say “Hi Bixby” at least five times. Although Bixby can still identify your speech, it is now a feature that you can turn off. As a result, customers will be asking by saying hi to the virtual assistant a few times by default.

In other news, a Samsung 3D virtual assistant made the rounds on the internet.  There are sparking rumors that a more advanced version dubbed Sam will replace Bixby.
