Bixby Voice Chinese support now in beta testing phase

The Samsung Experience 9.0 is built on Android Oreo, which is thus far only available on Google's own Pixel and Nexus devices. Looks like that is about to change soon as the Chinese support has started its beta testing phase, with 15,000 users volunteering to try Bixby in their native language and give feedback to Samsung as to how correct the syntax is or how easy it is to use. However, we hope this will open up soon here.

While Samsung has not had the best track record when it comes to Android updates, the company seems to be catching up.

The crucial question, of course, is when Samsung plans to roll out a final, stable version of Android Oreo for all Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus owners, because it took until January before Android Nougat reached Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users this year. However, in order to get this update, your device must fulfil certain criteria.

This is the first shot at Android Oreo for Galaxy S8 owners, but there are some limitations to be eligible for the program. Alternatively, they can also enroll unlocked versions of the phone, but it must be carrying SIMs from the aforementioned carriers.

According to Samsung's press statement, Galaxy S8, S8+ users in South Korea, the U.S. and the United Kingdom will get a chance to preview the new Samsung Experience 9.0 before its official release.

Samsung Electronics has released the new version of their mobile user interface, Samsung Experience 9.0 beta, which offers select customers a chance to experience new features available through the Galaxy ecosystem. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the bigger Samsung flagship with dual rear cameras and the S-Pen. The Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition is similar to Note 8.

With the beta program rolling out in the USA and the United Kingdom, we can expect it to come to India soon. The redditor who has experienced the feel of the beta version mentioned how some of Samsungs apps have been brilliantly redesigned. Any major bugs will not be globally spread if a phased update is rolled out.
