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.

Google Play Store goverment badge

Google Play Store is rolling out a significant update regarding the app and in-app payment. Android’s native app market has a vast range of applications and games for free. However, there’s a paid app category as well, which users found worth buying as per their preference.

According to the info, the Google Play Store has added a button that lets you create a payment link while purchasing an app or in-app item. You can use this link to ask someone else for payment on your behalf. It’s starting to roll out in India, with expansion expected gradually.

The user who taps the button is warned that the person who’s paying has to know their full email address, and can see the item that’s being purchased. Notably, app developers don’t have to do any additional work to support Google Play’s new “ask someone else to pay for this item” button.

A system share sheet will be displayed to share the payment link through a range of apps and services. Once generated, the payment link will be valid for 24 hours. The payer will have to make successful payments within 24 hours to buy an app or in-app stuff for the sender.

Samsung Galaxy Ring Honor

Samsung will be releasing its Galaxy Ring device in July this year. Potential consumers may have been concerned about picking their ideal size. Well, Samsung will likely offer a Sizing Kit that will be delivered before the Galaxy Ring so you can pick the size.

Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Ring at Mobile World Congress. As the formal release is scheduled for July, the company is already working on consumer convenience. As everyone doesn’t know their ideal ring size, Samsung prepared a pretty interesting hack.

Leaker EvanBlass revealed that Samsung would ship a Galaxy Ring Sizing Kit to potential buyers. If you are interested in purchasing a Galaxy Ring and unsure about the ring size, you will get a Sizing Kit upon ordering the Galaxy Ring and choosing the “I don’t know my size” option.

Once done, you will receive sample rings, letting you find the best size for your preferred finger. Later, you can pick the preferred size and confirm the order to get the Galaxy Ring delivered. It is expected that the Ring will be available in a total of 9 different sizes.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 update September 2023 update US

Samsung might launch Galaxy Z Flip 6 Slim and Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slip GalaxyClub reports. While the company is marching towards its July Unpacked, rumors about new Slim models are surfacing now.

RossYoung hints that Samsung might introduce a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim. It could have a larger display than the regular phone and lack S Pen support. This variant could hit the market later this year in the fourth quarter.

The Z Fold 6 Slim is model-numbered Q6 Slim, while there’s also a B6 Slim. B6 is the model number of the upcoming Z Flip 6, with Slim also expected. These rumors point out that the affordable foldables might be Slim.

At present, we don’t have any idea of the specifications of the Slim foldables. Earlier, it was reported that Samsung was heavily shocked by the reduced thickness of foldable phones released by Chinese vendors specifically Huawei.

It looks like the Korean tech giant has decided to trim some key specs in order to make foldables thinner. Those who want pro-grade specs would have option to go for strategic models, while Slim variants would extend the choice.
