Samsung is working on a smart speaker to rival Amazon Echo

Samsung eyes reset with new Galaxy Note

The news comes shortly after Samsung rolled out its artificial intelligence (AI) assistant to over 200 countries following numerous delays caused by technical issues which the tech giant encountered during its development. He also confirmed the product would launch "soon". With Spotify, Bixby users will be able to use voice commands to play/pause songs alongside other functions. Unless you speak Korean, you'll want to opt for the US English option.

Samsung says it will continue to expand Bixby's capabilities. Issues for Bixby included the difficulty translating Bixby into languages besides English and the program's lack of accumulated user experience compared to older assistant programs like Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant. On the home appliance side, Samsung has a substantial number of devices for sale that feature smart home functionality and also has its own SmartThings standard for networked local connectivity among products.

While Koh did not provide a lot of details - for example, it's not been confirmed if the device will actually be powered by Bixby - he does mention the possibility of an announcement coming "soon". It didn't take long before another report said that Samsung might not be making a smart speaker after all. The forthcoming Samsung smart speaker will compete with the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod.

Originally set to roll out in the US and South Korea in the spring with the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus flagship phones, Bixby's arrival was delayed until July.
