Bixby coming soon to Samsung smart TVs: Report

It was earlier this year in March at Samsung’s “Unpacked” event that the company announced its artificial intelligence-powered personal digital assistant Bixby. The product was a part of the company’s new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones. Bixby eventually also arrived on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as well. Right from the outset, it was evident that Bixby will not be restricted to a select bunch of premium smartphones from the company and if we are to believe recent reports, Bixby could soon make it to an entirely different class of devices – Smart TVs.

According to SamMobile, Bixby could soon end up on Samsung TVs. The source of this information is a new trademark registration that seems to connect Bixby to future Samsung TVs.  Samsung has reportedly filed a trademark for the term “Samsung Connected Life with Bixby.”

It is evident from the description on the filing that Bixby is indeed making its way to Samsung TVs. The trademark describes that Samsung Connected Life with Bixby is “software for television in order to find the desired service and/or contents of television by recognition or user’s voice.”

While it is too early to comment on specifics, we expect Bixby for TVs to initially support English and Korean. Chinese language support could come at a later time. It would be interesting to see if these new Bixby powered TVs would be unveiled at next year’s CES which is now just two months away.
