Samsung looks to ditch Bixby in favour of Google Assistant

A report on Bloomberg today reveals that Samsung is in negotiations with Google to elevate the company’s voice and app store offerings on Samsung devices.

While details of the deal are unknown it’s would follow similar large scale defaulting on other devices, such as Safari’s default search engine on Apple’s iPhones. A deal that earns Apple well into the billions each year.

It’s expect the Samsung version would ultimately replace the current Samsung-developed “Galaxy App Store” with Google’s Play Store and Bixby with the far superior, and welcomed, Google Assistant.

When this may occur, we’ll have to wait and see, but I don’t imagine too many Samsung users would be upset by the shift.
