Samsung Galaxy S8 leaked one of its most interesting features -a virtual assistant called Bixby. Previous versions of the Galaxy S utilized the Google Now feature but this time, the company aims to be in league with Apple, which is popular for its virtual assistant Siri. Samsung was not planning to release details about its new virtual assistant but the company accidentally did when it posted images on its site.
With the latest information that Samsung will introduce Bixby in Galaxy S8, the next biggest question is the function of this virtual assistant. The company revealed that Bixby will support Samsung Pay. This means that users can give orders to Bixby to send money to their contacts.
Viv, the developer behind Bixby, was acquired by Samsung months ago. This new technology is set to rival Siri and it has the potential to do so since the people behind it are the same individuals who developed Siri.
