Samsung confirms it's working on a smart speaker

Instead, it's been limited to the Galaxy S8 smartphone.

While Amazon, Google, and Apple have all given their voice-controlled intelligent assistants smart speakers to live in, Samsung's Bixby hasn't had a speaker to call home. The idea is to have Bixby, the company's digital personal assistant at the center.

After rolling out last month in the USA, the Samsung Bixby voice assistant has expanded to Canada and over 200 more countries around the world. With Spotify, Bixby users will be able to use voice commands to play/pause songs alongside other functions.

After AI, Lohani tasked with revamping Railways
Earlier today, Delhi-bound Kaifiyat Express derailed in Uttar Pradesh leaving approximately 74 people injured. They said some senior officers approached Prabhu, who said the matter no longer concerned his ministry alone.

Last month, details emerged of a smart speaker in development by Samsung, codenamed "Vega".

Aside from Samsung apps and system settings, Bixby is also compatible with the likes of WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube, Messenger, Twitter, Instagram, Uber and Google Play Music.

In July the Wall Street Journal reported that a Samsung smart speaker was being developed; however, two weeks later the Korea Herald, also speaking with anonymous sources, said the project had been shelved because Samsung did not believe there was enough money in smart speakers. With the announcement, Bixby Voice, which has been due since April, was first released in the U.S. in July, and now it is being made available in around 200 countries. "I am already working on it", Koh told CNBC today - and it seems that it forms part of the company's broader "smart home" vision. It didn't take long before another report said that Samsung might not be making a smart speaker after all.
