Samsung confirms its smart speaker, says Bixby will add Spotify support

Galaxy Note8 256GB storage model

From this perspective also, Samsung needs to quickly scale up the capabilities of Bixby. A smart speaker would certainly be one device that users could take advantage of, so it will be interesting to see what Samsung creates. With Spotify, Bixby users will be able to use voice commands to play/pause songs alongside other functions.

Samsung plans to continue expanding Bixby's voice capabilities to additional countries, languages, devices, features and third-party applications. Samsung had to admit that there was lacuna in the coordination between the 200-strong technical team based out of U.S. and the one back in South Korea. Although DJ Koh did not provide any details about the design and look of the smart speaker he did say it will be powered by Bixby. It's a major win for Bixby, as the assistant has suffered from multiple delays and a lack of integrations lately. On the home appliance side, Samsung has a substantial number of devices for sale that feature smart home functionality and also has its own SmartThings standard for networked local connectivity among products.

FSU Ranked Third In Preseason AP Poll
K-State finished last season on a hot streak, winning six of its last seven games to end the year with a 9-4 record. Starting the season ranked in the top 20 is familiar territory for the Georgia football team the past five years.

Speaking to CNBC, DJ Koh confirmed the smart speaker, but he didn't reveal the launch timeline for it. I am already working on it.

"Samsung now does not view artificial intelligence speakers as marketable, as the global market is already dominated by unbeatable Amazon and the Korean market is too small to make profits", an anonymous source told The Korea Herald. Apple is also going to enter the arena soon with its HomePod.
