Did you ever face any issues making Bixby understand what you are saying? How many times did you have to repeat those Indian names to Bixby, be it Mahatma Gandhi, Chandni Chowk or Ganesh Chaturthi? Some of you probably thought that why do we need to use the US or British accent when interacting with Bixby. Well, the wait is over. Bixby can now effortlessly recognize Indian names, places and even more.

image1.JPGBixby enabled mobile devices and TV in India are now smart enough to recognize Indian accent. Bixby’s sophisticated machine learning models for speech recognition are trained to understand Indian English accent. Your intelligent voice assistant, Bixby will continue to get better with time as it learns more about Indian names.

 

There is a steady increase in the Bixby active user base on the mobile devices since we started supporting Indian English. Bixby can assist you with a number of things throughout the day - set up alarms, find out news headlines or play music on YouTube. Your voice assistant can also chat with you for some fun and entertainment activities, call someone, or set a reminder.

 

Bixby can help you start your day with weather updates and news headlines. For the latest updates on news and weather, just ask, “Brief me”.

Bixby will keep you engaged with personalized responses for questions such as “Hi Bixby, how are you?”, “What’s up?”, “Good morning!”, “I’m home” or “Tell me a joke”. You can ask Bixby to help with the navigation. Say “Navigate to Shivajinagar” to get help with the route map and direction.

Bixby can help you make phone calls easily. You can just say, “Call Bhupendra” and let Bixby do the job for you.  The reminder feature will help you to set a reminder for any given time. To set a reminder, you can say, “Set a reminder for a meeting at 4 PM tomorrow”.

Bixby can help you control the TV settings (audio and display), media playback (audio or video play, fast forward, rewind and next), channel (change channel) and lot more while you enjoy watching the TV on your couch. For example, you can simply say “Play Bollywood songs on Youtube” and Bixby will do the rest for you.

In tomorrow's 10-20 years nothing is gonna be like privacy. Jio has set digital pitch for that where Facebook, Snapdragon and Google like giants will be players playing with our own life data digitally, will influence and control it digitally.
