You can soon talk to your Samsung fridge, TV via Bixby

On CES 2019’s opening day, Samsung announced that its virtual assistant Bixby — which is usually found on its smartphones — will soon be available across a wider range of its products.

“Bixby intelligence will be infused into its 2019 QLED and premium TVs, and smart appliances like refrigerators, washers, as well as air conditioners, mobile devices, AI speakers and more,” said the company in a press release.

This means that you may be able to talk to your future Samsung appliances, and control how they work for you without physically interacting with them.

Though Bixby has often fallen behind other smart assistants like Siri and Google Assistant, “Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency” now stands as Samsung’s new AI philosophy.

The Korean company failed to announce when we can expect to find Bixby on fridges, air conditioners and the like.
