Next version of Bixby to be unveiled next week
Despite being featured on millions of devices, Bixby has to be one of Samsung’s least popular products. The company has appointed a new leader of the company’s AI efforts, Chung Eui-suk, and in a few days Samsung will unveil the next major version of the digital assistant.
The major change in Bixby 2.0 is that it will support third-party services and will expand beyond smartphones. These things are not part of v1.0 since the team ran out of time (even then they missed the launch of the Galaxy S8 in the US).
Anyway, going beyond phones probably includes a smart speaker and Bixby…
