Samsung described Bixby as a tool that would let you perform any touch actions by voice on the Galaxy S8, which would be a huge win for Samsung. Samsung Galaxy S8 features were unveiled at the event held late March, giving fans an introduction to the key upgrades on the new device.

Samsung tells Axios that the Bixby Voice feature will not be ready in time for the Galaxy S8's launch on April 21.

While Samsung's voice control won't be available at first, Bixby Vision, Home and Reminder all will be available from launch. However, given that Bixby was going to be Samsung's big answer to Apple's Siri, missing the S8's launch seems rather unceremonious.

With the Premier League's top four all having won on Saturday, it was essenti. "It was open at 0-0", Mourinho told Sky Sports .

Samsung included a dedicated button on the phone's side for Bixby in an effort to place the spotlight on it and differentiate it from other smart assistants.

According to Samsung, Bixby Voice won't be available on the Galaxy S8 until later this Spring. It's worth noting, however, that we ran into bugs and as recently as two weeks ago when previewing the new Galaxy S8. But without English-language voice-activated services, that experience will be put on hold for eager U.S. users. While most of Bixby's functions resemble those of the Google Assistant, the former had a few aces up its sleeve that give it a unique identity to some extent.

The new smartphones have been proving a hit with Australians, with Samsung reporting they are selling more than the troubled predecessor Galaxy 7 by a rate of "double-digit percentage points".

Thompson's only win Tuesday came in Sedgwick County, the most populous of the 17 counties in the Congressional District. But he also said he didn't vote for Trump in the presidential election because he doesn't "believe in the party line".

The Galaxy S8 will have Bixby on April 21, of course.

Samsung did not immediately respond to a comment on the reason for the delay.

When we had some hands-on time with Bixby last month, Samsung had promised that its assistant would be capable of 15,000 tasks at launch.
