Your Galaxy S8 just got its long-promised companion.


														
							

The voice component of Samsung’s Bixby assistant has been a long time in coming.

At last, though, it’s becoming widely available: Samsung is officially rolling out Bixby’s voice assistance to S8 and S8 Plus owners in the US. Every American with one of the flagship phones will get to talk to Bixby once an update arrives “tonight.” There have been a few tweaks to this official release, too.

Most importantly, Bixby is better at understanding natural language expressions. You can say “what’s the forecast like today?” or “show me the weather” and expect the right answer. It can also read out the latest text messages in Samsung’s official app, so you can catch up on conversations while your hands are tied. Bixby is better at contextual awareness inside third-party apps (you can use Bixby to change your destination in Google Maps), and it should be quicker to respond to your orders.
