Bixby is now available in more than 200 countries, which means that Samsung will get more services support onboard. A smart speaker would certainly be one device that users could take advantage of, so it will be interesting to see what Samsung creates.

Ultimately, Samsung would want to make Bixby a ideal digital assistant so that it can compete on level with Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant, besides SIRI. Unless you speak Korean, you'll want to opt for the US English option.

Samsung will expand Bixby's voice feature language availability, device support, and third-party applications going forward. Samsung mobile division president DJ Koh confirmed that the company is working on its own smart home speaker.

Confirmation of a smart speaker by Samsung follows months of speculation on the matter, beginning in May when Samsung filed a design patent with the US government for an audio device with a visual display. However, this is the first time when Samsung has outrightly confirmed the existence of such device and also confirmed its arrival. He told the news network that "I am already working on it" and the company will soon announce it. CNBC was interviewing Koh ahead of the Note 8 smartphone launch. The forthcoming Samsung smart speaker will compete with the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod. While Bixby's rough rollout could be a potential hurdle for the Vega, Samsung is likely banking on its sizable install base among smartphone - and by extension, Bixby - users to help the speaker catch up to competitors.
