Samsung finally kills S Voice assistant starting June 1


Later this year, Samsung will finally kill its assistant S Voice, which is never caught up with Apple’s Siri. A note on Samsung’s support page says S Voice will no longer be available starting June 1, as first reported by SamMobile.

Samsung’s first attempt at having a voice assistant, S Voice, was introduced in 2012 on the Galaxy S III, but it was buggy and slow. As Google 9to5 points out, S Voice was able to set reminders and make calls but was unable to answer users’ questions conversationally, as Siri and the Google Assistant are designed to do.

Samsung essentially replaced S Voice with Bixby on phones that start with the Galaxy S8 (although Bixby itself hasn’t exactly impressed The Verge reviewers during its lifetime, either). Some of Samsung’s wearables still have S Voice; The Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Active have Bixby updates available and a similar update to Gear S3 and Gear Sport will be provided after June 1, according to Samsung.
