An upgraded version of Bixby might be announced on October 18

Samsung could unveil Bixby version 2.0 next week

The AI assistant Bixby hasn't proven to be the consumer hit Samsung had hoped for and now the company is taking big steps to try and change that.

When Bixby first arrived on the Galaxy S8 it was limited to use in South Korea and then the US; UK support finally arrived in August, but Bixby failed to win a huge amount of approval.

The upgraded version of Bixby is set to be announced at Samsung's annual Developer Conference in San Francisco on October 18. The Korea Herald also notes that Version 2.0 may integrate with third-party services and devices other than smartphones. "Outside developers will participate in the development of Bixby 2.0 although they could not for Bixby 1.0 due to time shortage".

Samsung has helped a great deal to promote the current trend of smartphones with almost bezel-free displays, thanks to the success of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, and more recently the Galaxy Note 8. Moving Bixby to the likes of the Gear S3 and Gear Sport only makes sense, and along with this, there's also the chance of a Samsung smart speaker that we've been hearing rumors about for months now. For many users, Bixby was soon associated with accidental button presses and annoyance.

Samsung recently appointed a new executive for the development of its voice assistant Bixby in a move to enhance the performance of the assistant which is facing a lackluster response from the market.

Eui-suk will not directly replace head of Bixby development Rhee In-jong, but will help head-up Bixby 2.0, which is under development with the goal to improve upon the first-generation Bixby which made its debut in the Galaxy S8. He had previously worked for Ericsson and Samsung's smartphone research center.
