New Features of Samsung Bixby

Bixby Text Call 

Bixby’s new update brings several new features and improvements that allow users to further customize their user experience, including the recent availability of Bixby Text Call in English.

Now English speakers can take calls from anywhere by typing a message that Bixby converts to audio and communicates directly with the caller on their behalf.

Availability: Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, Galaxy S23 Ultra, Z Fold 4, and Z Flip 4. In addition, it works on phones with One UI 4.1.1 or above for Korean and phones with One UI 5.1 or above for English.

Intelligent Platform

Bixby can now better understand the purpose to handle subsequent requests by understanding the context and adding words used earlier in the conversation.

It can now offer more seamless continuity and better meet user needs in Samsung Health by introducing new scenes, including playing music based on the type of workout or saving a schedule to the calendar.

Bixby Voice Creator

Users can also personalize their Bixby Text Call voice. With the new Bixby Custom Voice Creator, users can record different phrases, which Bixby analyzes and then creates an AI-generated copy of their voice and tone.

This generated voice is currently available in Korean but is also said to be compatible with other Samsung apps beyond phone calls. And for those who want to customize their wake word, Bixby now also supports custom wake phrase changes in Bixby settings and adds a new option to create a personalized wake phrase.

Improved Language Recognition, Processing, and Response

In addition to these cool new features, Samsung has also expanded the on-device AI support of Bixby. The user can now execute important commands completely offline, such as Set a timer, taking a screenshot, or turn on the flashlight.

By integrating on-device AI into its native apps, Samsung continues to expand its voice offering and capabilities with advanced AI-based voice dictation. These updates to Bixby benefit from powerful innovations in Samsung Galaxy devices, including AI applications that bring industry-leading performance to the devices.

New Zealand’s new Prime Minister Christopher Luxon announced that he would promote the ban on phones in primary and secondary schools across the country. This initiative aims to improve the quality of education for primary and secondary school students in New Zealand.

According to New Zealand education sources, the literacy skills of New Zealand primary and secondary school students have been declining in the past few years, and have even reached a “crisis” level. Over 1/3rd of the country’s 15-year-old students have poor literacy levels, which has aroused concern from all walks of life.

In June 2022, Samsung Display filed a patent infringement lawsuit against China’s BOE in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The technology that Samsung Display claims to be infringing on is five OLED display patents for all products released after the iPhone 12.

Last December, Samsung Display filed a complaint with the ITC against 17 US parts wholesalers to keep BOE in check, asking the ITC to stop using parts and panels that infringe on the company’s ‘Diamond Pixel’.

Accordingly, BOE filed a countersuit in Chongqing’s First Intermediate People’s Court in May against Samsung Display China and Samsung Elec China, claiming patent infringement.
