A recent report states Samsung plans to shut down support for its Bixby Voice digital assistant on some devices in January…
Despite a considerable amount of bad press and user dissatisfaction, Samsung has managed to install Bixby on a lot of the company’s Android smartphones. Still, it’s not exactly a popular feature and many people opt to disable it when possible.
Now, a report from SamMobile claims Samsung will end support for Bixby Voice early next year. More particularly, for devices running either Android Nougat or Oreo.
Samsung Bixby Voice Support might End for Some Devices in January
Although it appears Samsung will sunset Bixby Voice support in January, there’s no official word. However, if true, it won’t affect phones running Android Pie or Android 10.
SamMobile reports the Galaxy S9 and S9+, S8, S8+, and S8 Active, along with the Galaxy Note 8 and A9 2018, would be the only devices impacted.
The good news is, Android Pie is compatible and available with all those models, so by updating before January, there’ll be no change.
