SEOUL, Feb. 24 (Korea Bizwire) — Samsung Electronics Co. has updated its artificial intelligence (AI)-powered digital assistant Bixby, enabling users of its new flagship Galaxy S23 smartphones to talk on the phone by typing messages in situations where it’s difficult for them to answer the phone.
Samsung announced on Thursday that it had added the Custom Voice Creator function for Bixby.
By adding voice in the call setting on Galaxy smartphones, users can enjoy the “Bixby Text Call” function in their own voice.
This function converts what the caller says into text messages. If users answer in texts, it converts them to voice and reads them for the caller.
And for those who want to customize their wake word, Bixby now supports changes to the custom wake-up phrase within Bixby settings.
Instead of using existing wake-up words such as “Bixby” or “Hi Bixby,” users can customize their own wake-up words within a range of three to five letters.
The Bixby Custom Voice Creator and Bixby Text Call functions are available in Korean and English, while the Custom Wake-up Phrase function is available only in the Korean language environment.
