If you are one of the few users in India who use Bixby, Samsung has confirmed the voice assistant now supports Indian English language as part of the Bixby 3.0 update. What this means is Bixby can understand Indian names, places, relationships, recipes, etc. For instance, you can ask Bixby for the recipe of Chicken Tikka Masala, information on a nearby point of interest, and more.
The Indian English support is currently available for the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 devices and will be rolled out to other devices that support Bixby soon.
At Samsung, our endeavour is to offer effortless experience to our consumers via breakthrough technology. The latest update, which brings support for Indian English in Bixby 3.0, takes us one step closer in this direction. India being a culturally rich country, it was important for us to ensure that Bixby understands the different accents and native terms spoken across the country. Our diverse teams at R&D centers in Bengaluru, Delhi and Noida made sure that we covered as many flavours of spoken English in India as possible.Giridhar Jakki, Senior Director and Head, Voice Intelligence Team, Samsung R&D Bangalore
