Dipesh Shah, MD, Samsung R&D Institute said during the launching event,

It doesn’t matter which part of India you are from, Bixby will work hard to understand you and take care of your daily activities.

After installing the Bixby Voice on your smartphone, you can set reminders, find photos from your gallery, take a selfie, turn on the flashlight and much more just by using the voice commands. All you will have to do is just use the wake-up keyword called, “Hi Bixby”.

According to Samsung, the development of the Bixby Voice for Indian users was taken place at Samsung Research & Development Institute, Bangalore (SRI-B). We can expect this feature to be available not only on the low-end smartphones, but also on other Samsung appliances as well. You might find the Bixby less attractive or intelligent as of now, but we are really expecting it to become an important part of our lives in a few months.
