The Samsung Bixby Marketplace launches to the public, opening new competition against giants Google and Amazon to take on Home and Alexa…
Even though Amazon Alexa and Google Home currently dominate the virtual assistant market, they certainly aren’t the only ones in the game. Samsung has its own digital assistant, known as Bixby. But, it’s not gained much popularity. Samsung understands its position and has launched the Bixby Marketplace.
Samsung Bixby Marketplace goes Live to Compete against Amazon and Google
The new Bixby Marketplace offers what the company calls “capsules,” which integrate with third-party apps. These are increasingly more practical for the home and for other uses. Some of the categories include productivity, games, communication, travel and transportation, education, food and drink, music, shopping, and more.
Here’s how Samsung introduces its new Bixby Marketplace:
“The Bixby Marketplace is a one-stop shop for users to browse and add a wide range of services (known as capsules) to enhance their Bixby experience.
This new platform is now open to users in U.S. and Korea. The Bixby Marketplace’s official launch lays the foundation for an open ecosystem of useful services that developers will continuously enrich, and users will be able to make their mobile experience more personal and intuitive.”
