Samsung teaser confirms Bixby's global launch is set for August 22

2

Samsung is rumored to enable Bixby globally on August 22, but we now have confirmation the international launch of the personal assistant will indeed happen tomorrow. The South Korean company has just released a short teaser that clearly shows the global rollout of Bixby will start on August 22.

According to a previous report, the update that brings Bixby, Bixby Global Action, Bixby Dictation, Bixby Wakeup and Bixby PLM has already been released in many countries like U.K., South Africa, India, Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Argentina, Afghanistan, Iran, the UAE, Australia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Pakistan.

However, these Bixby-related features have not been enabled, so they don't work yet. However, starting tomorrow, they could become fully functional. Not all Samsung smartphones and tablets will be compatible with the new Bixby features and some will be enabled before others.

In related news, one day after the global rollout of Bixby, on August 23, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 flagship, which will most certainly come with Bixby on board.
