Bixby is the personal assistant in the projects of Samsung will be able to compete with Siri, Google Assistant and Cortana. The AI has officially debuted on Galaxy S8 and soon will expand its availability to other products in the electronics Asian giant, which appears to have patented a new modular model Galaxy Notes. According to reports by Pulse News Korea, Bixby should soon also be integrated in refrigerators. The user can then consult and ask recipes, information on the weather, or what foods are going to end without having to interact with the external touch display of the refrigerator.
Bixby is currently available in full version only in South Korea. In Italy and in all other countries, the voice assistant allows you to only have access to “Watch”, “Reminder” and “Home”. The first lets you search online classified on objects from the camera while the second and third, respectively, allow you to manage your appointments and collect all the activities in one place. The arrival of Bixby on refrigerators suggests that Samsung wants to expand its ecosystem of connected devices for the Internet of Things. The news especially corroborates the hypothesis that the Korean company is actually thinking about a domestic speaker to compete with Google home and Echo Amazon, whose show version also offers a touchscreen and the ability to make video calls.
