Samsung‘s Bixby Voice, the feature that lets Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners control a variety of functions on their device with just their voice, has had a staggered rollout throughout the year. It launched first in South Korea, and, following a public beta period, finally launched in the United States back in July.
There’s still room to grow, though, and Samsung made that clear with an official announcement that Bixby has rolled out to over 200 countries across the globe, in places like South Africa, the UK, Canada, and Australia. However, the feature still only supports two languages: Korean and U.S. English.
Samsung is positioning Bixby Voice’s rollout not just as a welcome addition to new markets, but also a means to make the feature even better. Samsung says Bixby Voice improves over time through usage, so getting more people to use it is important. Moreover, Samsung says that Bixby Voice’s rollout isn’t finished, with the feature heading to more markets and supporting more languages in the future.
For now, Samsung is rolling out Bixby Voice to more countries while also preparing for the impending arrival of the Galaxy Note 8.
