However, Bixby has launched globally and it has been confirmed at the Unpacked event that Samsung are in fact working on a smart speaker powered by the personal assistant.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 (review) was one of the better releases this year, but its Bixby assistant was left in a very unfinished state, despite the inclusion of a dedicated button for the service.

Since Koh has confirmed the device, it should be noted that Samsung's smart speaker will enter a crowded market, dominated by the Amazon Echo and Google Home.

In addition to offering quick commands, Bixby can also be personalized to support custom voice commands and shortcuts for multiple functions at once, according to Samsung. "Get started by saying, "Hi, Bixby", tweeted Samsung SmartLife. It's available on the Galaxy S8 smartphone.

Last month, details emerged of a smart speaker in development by Samsung, codenamed "Vega". He told the news network that "I am already working on it" and the company will soon announce it. CNBC was interviewing Koh ahead of the Note 8 smartphone launch. Koh said Samsung wants to create a "fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices, and [he] want [s] to be moving quite heavily on it".

It completes multi-app, complex requests; for instance, you can ask Bixby to group pictures from your latest vacation, and sending them to your friends. It didn't take long before another report said that Samsung might not be making a smart speaker after all.
