Samsung announced today, February 19, the official launch of the Portuguese voice feature of its virtual assistant Bixby in Brazil.
Customized and programmed to assist users in everyday activities, the solution, previously made available, in beta test, for the entire base of the Galaxy S10, now extends to the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10 +.
The assistant according to Samsung, brings interactive technology for continuous learning, Bixby aims to offer a more personalized and intelligent contact between the user and his smartphone.
With a simple voice command, it is possible, for example, to check e-mails, change music, set alarm times, ask for dinner recommendations, switch camera modes, take pictures and activate navigation routes.
"We adapted Bixby's resources to the unique characteristics of the Brazilian public. Bixby is constantly developing based on the experience and feedback of users, as in such a wide country, one of the main points is precisely to take regionalisms, accents and grias into account. So, we ensure the ability to interact and offer a very effective experience ", said Bruno Costa, senior manager of content and services for the mobile device area at Samsung Brazil.
Another outstanding feature is in helping to complete activities while the user is on the move. Doubts about the weather forecast for the rest of the day or a reminder of an appointment are quickly resolved with a question to Bixby.
And, in addition to voice commands, the solution offers Bixby routines, which use artificial intelligence to learn about usage patterns and preferences. In this way, they automatically adjust the smartphone's settings, control applications and optimize the battery.
It is also possible to create routines based on location and what the user is doing, assigning a password or phrase to a group of actions.
"Bixby is able to assist users at different times of the day, both in personal moments and in professional activities. The consolidation of a Portuguese version raises the level of experience that the Brazilian public can have with S10 or Note10 smartphones", concluded Bruno Coast.
Using it since January 22 when I received the BETA from Bixby in Portuguese, I can say that this learning that Samsung says the assistant has really works, because commands that I used through voice that were not understood before are now readily answered.
Another resource worth using are the Bixby Routines, for those who like to automate actions, those Tasker fans will take advantage of the resource. In addition to the presets that allow personalization, it is possible to create a new routine from scratch to bring more ease to your daily life.
