I hate to say it, but I told you so. Two weeks ago when Samsung unveiled its voice-powered assistant Bixby, I wrote an article about how I did not believe that its voice control component was going to be ready to ship with the Galaxy S8.
Samsung officially unveiled its new virtual assistant Bixby today alongside its Galaxy S8 smart phone.
A recent report from AndroidGuys speculates that Samsung could be developing it’s own smart speaker called Hello to compete directly with Google Home and the Amazon Echo.
Last October, Samsung acquired Viv Labs, an artificial intelligence startup founded by the creators of Apple’s Siri, signaling that the company also wanted a piece of the new voice assistant market.
