Samsung Bixby is coming for your children

Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant showed tremendous promise when it first broke onto the scene in 2017, replacing the company’s S Voice assistant. But six years later, Bixby doesn’t appear to be a priority for Samsung, and there are some hints that provide credence to this notion. Nevertheless, the virtual assistant is still in use by millions of users and has left even Google Assistant back in some areas. Samsung is now issuing an update to the Bixby app through its Galaxy Store app hub, with the ability to create profiles for the kids in your family.

Customers of both Galaxy phones and tablets can find this new capability with version of the app, SamMobile reports. Meanwhile, the corresponding Bixby Wakeup app has also been updated to version However, this appears to be a minor bug-fixing update, and no changelog was available in the Galaxy Store listing.
