Samsung hassaid Bixby now speaks English well enough and is ready for launch in the U.S.

Bixby has been available in Samsung in Korea since earlier this spring, but had been delayed in the U.S. because the company didn’t have enough data for English. The company opened an English preview of Bixby to select testers in the U.S. last month.

A software update will be available to owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ as soon as today, which installs the “consumer” version of Bixby on Samsung’s smartphones.

With Bixby Voice is installed, Galaxy S8 owners will be able to press the dedicated Bixby button and talk themselves through the entire user interface of select apps, rather than just issue short commands for one-time actions. Bixby Voice fully supports 10 apps at launch, including the gallery, messages, settings, phone, contacts, weather, calculator, reminders, Bixby Vision, and the camera.

Samsung is preparing more apps for Bixby, including Samsung Pay, Samsung Health, notes, My Files, email, and the internet browser, along with third-party apps such as WhatsApp, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and YouTube.

Samsung didn’t say when Bixby compatibility will reach these apps on consumer devices. Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners can expect to see Bixby Voice arrive shortly.
