Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant won’t ship with Galaxy S8 on April 21

Samsung’s highly promoted Bixby voice assistant won’t be shipping with the Galaxy S8 smartphone on April 21, as previously announced.

The company released a statement Tuesday night that said Bixby will be available in the U.S. on the Galaxy S8 “later in the spring.” Samsung didn’t explain the delay.

The Bixby will join a pack of artificial intelligence assistants that includes Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri and the Google Assistant that are changing the way people interact with their devices. 

Some U.S.-based reviewers and analysts had noticed that the Bixby feature wasn’t fully demonstrated when the S8 was announced March 29.
