Samsung is rolling out a new Bixby 3.0 update for its virtual assistant, which will support Indian English. This means Bixby will now be able to understand most Indian names, places, terms, and instructions, including “setting a timer for daily yoga practice, calling Papa, checking out recipes,” among others.
Existing Bixby users on supported devices will receive Indian English support by clicking on a banner on top of their app screen. In contrast, new users must select Indian English while setting up the app. Bixby also works if users want to connect the Galaxy smartphone to their television set.
Bixby can also help start slow-motion video recording, save the last received call as a contact, and many more with just a voice command. Additionally, Samsung says controlling and enabling various feature settings on Galaxy smartphones will now be made easier. For instance, the Bixby can now turn on the power saving mode with a command.
The new Bixby update is currently available on smartphones like Galaxy S21 Series, Galaxy A52, and Galaxy A72. It will soon be made available on other devices including, Galaxy S20 Series, Galaxy Note20 Series, and Galaxy Fold.
