Bixby Voice goes live in South Korea

Samsung’s exciting new flagship Galaxy S8 duo has been official for a little over a month now and the collective excitement is still running high. And the phenomenal interest and the strong pre-order sales were achieved in the absence of Bixby Voice – a huge part of Samsung’s marketing pitch.

Bixby’s eagerly-anticipated verbal abilities have been the subject to quite a few speculations since. Now Samsung has finally begun the feature rollout and its local market is naturally the first in line.

Demo videos, showing Bixby Voice at work have already started popping up on YouTube. Sadly, our Korean is a little rusty, but going by the first clip, we can see Bixby handles basic features, like running web searches and opening apps and menus with ease.
