Samsung may roll out Bixby 2.0 on October 18

The Herald reports that Samsung has drawn in extra talent to boost the endeavour, with Samsung Research America's vice chief Chung Eui-suk now heading the service intelligence group in Korea, which is responsible for Bixby. Bixby is Samsung's take on Apple's Siri and Google's Assistant. But the new features of the digital assistant is still unrevealed at this moment.

Before Chung joined Samsung in 2011, he worked for Ericsson and is credited for being the software expert behind Samsung Pay as well as the software security Knox. It's no surprise that Samsung is working to improve Bixby to help attract users and better compete against other assistants, and support for more third-party services sounds like a good addition.

Samsung's very own digital assistant, Bixby, hasn't exactly been well-received; it faced quite a number of delays and isn't quite up to par to its competition. It can understand and speak about eight languages, hoping to take on Siri and the Google Assistant.

The wait for the Bixby Voice 2.0 digital assistant may soon be over after rumors claimed that Samsung will finally release the new version of the app sometime next week. Samsung even launched an update that can disable and turn off the dedicated button of its digital assistant.

According to reports, the South Korean smartphone and electronics products manufacturer will unveil the new version of the Bixby digital assistant during the company's developer conference that will be held in San Francisco on October 18.

Bixby arrived with the Galaxy S8 handsets, but wasn't complete upon the model's launch for many users.

Samsung first made Bixby available in the company's home country this year and it was later rolled out across the globe in August with Korean and English languages.

Phone Arena reported that Bixby 2.0 might have input from Viv.
