When the new Samsung Galaxy S8 goes on sale on April 21, it won't have one of the most important features the company boasted about while announcing the handset.
Samsung even designated a button on the side of the S8 to access the virtual assistant, allowing users to fire up Bixby the way they would a walkie-talkie. After the alleged acquisition by Viv labs on the company for building Bixby out of a purchased AI from Apple's Siri developers, Samsung noted that Bixby will launch a little late for the US customers. While Samsung didn't give the BBC a launch date for English Bixby, the Journal's source stated a late-May date was likely.

Watch Kendrick Lamar's "DNA" Video
According to HITS Daily Double , Damn , Kendrick's third major label album, got over 50 million streams in just 24 hours. As with " HUMBLE .", the first video released from the LP, the visuals for " DNA ." are jarring and compelling.
The researcher said the demand for smartphones is anticipated to remain sluggish over the second quarter, as many consumers are waiting for the release of a new iPhone by Apple in the third quarter. One of the main focus during Samsung's Unpacked event for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus last month was its own virtual assistant called Bixby. Samsung hasn't provided a reason for the delay but reports have suggested that the software wasn't ready in the days before its launch. Instead of answering the questions, Bixby will help you to control your device through voice command. Other features, including Bixby Vision, Home, and Reminder, would, however, be available. The company also said that Bixby Voice would not come until later this year in the US.
However, some early analysers reported disappointing results from the voice-assistant when it failed to speak during the demonstration. If it wasn't a major issue, the company would have shipped the devices with an update to solve the issue. Users can still use Bixby to manage their daily affairs and provide recommendations, and the use of visual search which is powered by Pinterest's Lens technology is available.
