Bixby to expand its functionality and support new languages in Q4 2017
So, when will Bixby be updated with new capabilities and languages? Until recently, no one really knew, but the support page of Samsung Germany might have just given us the answer. Apparently, many users were eager to find out just that, so the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section of the site was updated and now states that Bixby will be able to converse in German in Q4 2017. A small screenshot attachment was also added, which reads "Bixby says 'Hello'" in German.
Although no further information was given, this gives us a reason to believe that Samsung might be planning to release a major update for the assistant this fall. As you may know, Bixby won't be an S8 exclusive, and will most likely be present in the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. The new Note will most probably be announced during the first week of September at IFA (held in Berlin), and it's hard to imagine a more appropriate occasion for the unveiling of a big software update.
