The process for global launch kicked off recently when the company started rolling out updates to Bixby apps – including Bixby, Bixby PLM, Bixby Wakeup, Bixby Dictation and Bixby Global Action – in several markets around the world.

Despite the roll out, the functionality was not enabled then. So the pending server-side flip should happen today.
