BIXBY ASSISTANT FEATURES ( SOURCE – OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE)
When an application becomes Bixby-enabled, Bixby will be able to support almost every task that the application is capable of performing using the conventional interface (i.e.,. touch commands). Most existing agents currently support only a few selected tasks for an application and therefore confuse users about what works or what doesn’t work by voice command. The completeness property of Bixby will simplify user education on the capability of the agent, making the behaviors of the agent much more predictable.
CONTEXT AWARENESS –
When using a Bixby-enabled application, users will be able to call upon Bixby at any time and it will understand the current context and state of the application and will allow users to carry out the current work-in-progress continuously. Bixby will allow users to weave various modes of interactions including touch or voice at any context of the application, whichever they feel is most comfortable and intuitive. Most existing agents completely dictate the interaction modality and, when switching among the modes, may either start the entire task over again, losing all the work in progress, or simply not understand the user’s intention.
COGNITIVE TOLERANCE –
When the number of supported voice commands gets larger, most users are cognitively challenged to remember the exact form of the voice commands. Most agents require users to state the exact commands in a set of fixed forms. Bixby will be smart enough to understand commands with incomplete information and execute the commanded task to the best of its knowledge and then will prompt users to provide more information and take the execution of the task in piecemeal. This makes the interface much more natural and easier to use.
Well, Samsung has also confirmed the existence of the dedicated button for Bixby Assistant that we are going to see on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. So, with this dedicated button, you will be able to do every single task like Calling someone, unlocking the phone, etc. It will be introduced with the smartphones first and then in other appliances like TV or AC. You can read everything about the Bixby Assistant from the official Press Release. What are your views about Bixby Assistant? Do let us know in the comments section.
