Samsung decides to turn off its S Voice assistant
Samsung said it plans later this year to stop its S Voice assistant, which was launched to rival Apple’s Siri digital assistant, but it appears that it has failed to do so.
The South Korean company has written a support page on its website that the S Voice – which was first launched in 2012 with the Galaxy S3 smartphone – will not be available after June 1.
a specialist in Google News and Android devices – indicated that the capabilities of Samsung’s voice assistant were limited and limited to preparing reminders and making calls, but it was not able to answer questions, similar to other digital aids, such as Siri and Google Assistant ).
And because Samsung realized early on the weakness of S Voice in the competition of others, it launched in 2017 the voice assistant (Bixby) Bixby with the phone (Galaxy S8) Galaxy S8, but this also did not like users, and did not rise to the level of competition.
It is noteworthy that a few Samsung devices, especially the wearable, are still using the S Voice assistant, and Samsung will work to upgrade it to (Bixby) later this year.
