Samsung Bixby Generative AI to rival Gemini, Bing and others

Published

Samsung Bixby new UI

Bixby could get Generative AI features, a top Samsung executive told CNBC. After Galaxy AI, the company is looking to uplevel its voice assistant Bixby with the introduction of generative AI capabilities.

Galaxy devices run the Android operating system, hence Google Assistant and Bixby are two options for voice assistant. As Google introduced Gemini AI, the Galaxy maker is also exploring possibilities for Bixby.

Google’s Gemini AI is capable of delivering generative results such as forming emails, drafting messages, and so on. Microsoft’s Bing even provides free access to the image generator tool, which offers a text-to-image feature.

The executive hinted at the possibility of Bixby getting Generative AI and said Samsung is “working so hard” to deliver them. Choi did not give a timeline for when Bixby may get generative AI features, however, we might hear about it at the July Unpacked.

“So Bixby has been a key voice assistants voice assistant for Samsung not just for the mobile devices, but also for TVs and digital appliances that exist in Samsung’s ecosystem. So it has been the core voice assistant assistant so far,” Won-joon Choi, executive vice president at Samsung’s mobile business, told CNBC in an interview last month.

“With the emergence of generative AI and LLM (large language model) technology, I believe that we have to redefine the role of the Bixby, so that Bixby could be equipped with generative AI and become more smarter in the future,” Choi said, adding this will “enable a more natural conversation and to work out an interface that supports the Samsung products in our ecosystem.”

Android Auto WhatsApp issue

Android Auto app integrates with various messaging applications and allows drivers to manage their messages through voice commands. However, some Android Auto users have encountered issues with the WhatsApp messaging app.

According to the information via 9to5Google, several users have reported that they can no longer send replies or new messages through WhatsApp on Android Auto. The issue seems to have started last week, and now, it is affecting several users.

This issue is surfacing on platforms like Google’s forums and Reddit. Users are stating that Google Assistant can show or read WhatsApp messages, but they can’t use it to send messages or start new chats.

The cause of this problem does not appear to be related to any specific update of the Android Auto app. It is more likely due to an unintended change on the server side. Google has not yet made any announcement regarding this issue or provided a timeline for when it will be resolved.

For the time being, users can still send messages using their phones, but this is not recommended while driving. Hopefully, Google will soon acknowledge this issue and provide a solution.
