Samsung rolls out new update for Bixby with support for Indian English

Bixby digital assistant on a mobile device

Samsung unveiled in March the Galaxy A52 and A72 in India, the successors to the Galaxy A51 and A71. Now, the phones have gained some improvements in terms of their native digital assistant capabilities for the Indian market.

Samsung announced today a new update for Bixby in India that focuses on improving the user experience and providing more contextual features to Indian consumers. The update introduces support for Indian English.

The Bixby 3.0 update enables the digital assistant to recognize Indian names, places, content, and recipes, among other Indian words. The latest version is meant to help you perform their daily tasks via the new Indian English avatar. For example, you can ask Bixby to look for Diwali pictures on your mobile device. You can also connect your Galaxy device to your TV by just saying, "Hi Bixby, show Bengaluru vacation photos on TV."

To get started, you can simply look for a banner at the top of your Bixby screen and then tap on it to turn on support for Indian English. On the other hand, if it's your first time setting up the digital assistant on your device, make sure to choose Indian English.

Initially, the update is available on the Galaxy A52 and A72 as well as the flagship Galaxy S21 series. It will go live for the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy S20 series, and the Galaxy Note20 series in the near future.
