Bixby's mad rapping and beatboxing skills showcased on video

13
Samsung's Bixby went live in South Korea yesterday, and shortly thereafter, a handful of videos showcasing the AI assistant's capabilities popped up on YouTube. Although not particularly indicative of the assistant's overall competence or skill set, there are a few fun ones that we are going to be taking a look at. Be warned, however, Bixby is an absolute savage!

Samsung's assistant apparently knows how to beatbox, drop some (debatably) sick beats, and even diss the competition along the way. Yes, that's right, if you ask for it, Bixby can rap for you and it may even knock Siri along the way, but we'll get to that in a moment.

Since words are not enough to describe it, just listen to Bixby's trap masterpiece:



That was something, wasn't it? Well, it gets better, supposedly. At one point in the song, according to Android Authority, Bixby actually says “I am better than Siri!” Although we weren't able to confirm this ourselves, due to linguistic barriers and Google Translate's reluctance to interpret some of the lines using "Image translate", it's still fun to think that Samsung's assistant has mic drop'd Siri. We'll have to wait until an English-speaking version is available to see if that's really the case.

In the meantime, why not listen to some delightfully robotic beatboxing by the multitalanted Bixby:




We can't wait to hear the jokes this fella has in store for us...
