CES 2018 held in January was also a showcase for Smart Assistants from the various manufacturer and Samsung was one of the top gainers silently with it’s Bixby getting better and better daily even if it had an initial criticism at lunch.
As discussed before, Smart Speakers as probably going to be big this year, so we at the tech community are projectiing that Samsung might launch it’s own speaker lineup to catch up with the the competiton and get a share of the market.
For those projecting Bixby dying down, it is not going to happen because Samsung will never give up on it and I believe it is going to increase in usage. A quote from Android Authority says “It is lacking upport,” it is true but that is because it is proprietary to just the Samsung phones, other Samsung products haven’t fully gotten it yet just like the story of Apple’s Siri and all that is about to change this year with Samsung making it clear that 90% of there product will be capable of IOT(Internet of Things) and which smart Assistant will be behind that? Take a guess.
