Bixby AI assistant to support up to 8 languages, further benefiting Tizen ecosystem

We are excited about the possibilities that Samsung’s new Artificial Intelligence (AI) virtual assistant, named Bixby, will bring to Samsung devices. The latest news today is that Bixby will support for up to 8 languages at launch, which will include English, Korean and Chinese.
Samsung acquired Viv Labs with the sole purpose of building a new and powerful virtual assistant that rivals those offered by its competitor’s. The first device to support Bixby will be the Samsung S8 and we are hoping soon thereafter it will be the next Tizen smartphone, which will be released later this year. This should help raise the profile of Tizen in the smartphone world and offer consumers another reason to choose Tizen.
Bixby will supersede Samsung’s S Voice app and will seamlessly Integrate with third-party services, distinguishing itself from other virtual assistants that are currently available in the market.

“Developers can attach and upload services to our agent,” said Samsung Executive Vice President Rhee Injong.

Bixby will be offered in other Samsung products such as wearable techSmart HomeSmartThingsSmart TV, and IoT connected devices. This will be a huge boost to the Tizen ecosystem and will encourage developers to Integrate Bixby into more third-party services and all along bolster the versatility of Tizen.
