T-Mobile and Sprint Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ receive update for Bixby, SD cards and more

T-Mobile and Sprint subscribers rocking the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ are starting to receive an update that has two main features according to its changelist. One is an update for the Bixby app, and the second provides more stability for SD cards. Before you get carried away, the update did not launch Bixby Voice, although it could have deposited certain files on the two handsets that are required for its eventual release. The most recently rumored time frame for the appearance of Bixby Voice is late this month.

Those who downloaded the update report that Bixby Vision and Reminders now include shortcuts at the top of the screen. Besides the latter, and the improvements made for SD card stability, the update also includes the May Android security parch.

No matter which carrier is connected to your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, once you receive the notification that the update has arrived, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with the installation of the new files. At the same time, make sure that the battery on your phone is fully charged. The update includes software version G950USQU1AQEF (Galaxy S8) or G955USQU1AQEF (Galaxy S8+). Both updates weigh in at 375.60 MB.
