Samsung announces Bixby 2.0, calls it a ‘bold reinvention’

    They announced it, not launched as it isn’t available for any devices yet. And with Samsung, who knows when that will even be.

    What is with these smartphone providers polishing up turds and telling consumers they’re truffles lately? Describing a non-inventive spitpolished iteration of an earlier invention as ‘revolutionary’ is just a thinly veiled lie. I’m looking at you, Bixby 2.0 and iPhone 8. Smartphone manufacturers, Android and iOS alike, need to cut the BS and stop taking consumers for fools.

      Samsung calls Bixby 2.0 a “reinvention” because they’re replacing the old S-Voice-based core with the newer Viv-based core, and Apple called the iPhone 8 a “new generation” because it’s a new generation of device. Both of their statements are completely true, and neither makes claims of being “revolutionary”. The “revolutionary” part is all in your head, and you’re getting upset over what’s in your own head.

    “Bold reinvention” means suck less and be more useful?

    Actually, I haven’t really given Bixby all that much focus. I really don’t use Google Assistant for anything other than calling and texting people.

    Maybe once some of these programs can do things quicker than me typing it on my PC or phone, I might give them more focus.

    i’ll give them credit, i half expected they’d just kill it off entirely already but they really want this to work….maybe just take some time and work out the kinks? you really don’t need the dev community to help you Samsung, you have the power…so just sit down and make it useful and work well instead of being a closed off less useful and functional Google Assistant / Siri clone
