Samsung is Rumored to be Working on a Bixby-Powered Smart Speaker
It appears that every major business has become required to release an intelligent speaker. Not looking to remain by Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and Apple, Samsung has apparently turned into the newest tech giant to go on the bandwagon.
Based on a report in the Wall Street Journal, the South Korean firm is actually working on an intelligent speaker unit that is driven by its unique Bixby AI voice assistant.
The project is actually codenamed Vega (no relation to AMD’s Vega, obviously), and also is in development for over a season. it has still not clear when the item is going to be offered – It is reportedly been postponed because support for English voice commands using Bixby, which released on the Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+, has been postponed.
While Bixby voice support began coming out in early beta form for Samsung S8 owners last month, the Wall Street Journal notes that the complete release of Bixby voice support is actually not likely to arrive “before the second half of July,” so suppose the sensible speaker to show up later on instead of earlier.
When Vega does get here, Samsung is going to enter a market awash with clever speakers from its rivals. In addition to Google Home and also Amazon’s Echo line is fighting against the forthcoming Apple HomePod and Microsoft/Harman Kardon’s Cortana powered Invoke. In case it really wants to stick out from the masses, Vega might offer different things or be much better value for money.
While lots of individuals are actually not sure the reason they’d also need an intelligent speaker, particularly when their smartphones perform several very similar features, sales of the devices carry on and develop, jumping thousand % this past holiday season as opposed to the same time a year prior.
