A new Bixby update is being rolled out to Samsung users that should significantly improve the user experience. The update doesn’t make it much smarter than it already is but it helps with the ease of usee.
For starters, the “Hi Bixby” command doesn’t require voice training anymore, streamlining the initial setup. The response to your voice query has also been modified and it no longer takes up the whole screen but just a small portion of it. It will stay there for 15 seconds by default, but there’s an option to adjust that time.
An important under-the-hood change will be the personalized response. The voice assistant learns about your preferences over time and will show a specific response to your needs if the “Personalized Bixby” toggle is enabled.
There’s also an option to put a quick command icon on your home screen for faster and more convenient task execution.
The update itself is already available on Samsung’s Galaxy Store but it may take some time before it arrives to all markets.
