Samsung's Bixby voice assistant now open to third-party developers

Samsung has opened up its Bixbey platform, which will now allow third-party developers to build Artificial Intelligence (AI) functionalities.

Bixby was developed in a practical way that uses voice to interact with the phone, but now the platform is evolving into a scalable, open AI platform, which will support devices like TVs and fridge.

The South Korean tech giant announced the opening of Bixby Developer Studio, which is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), to developers at Samsung Developer Conference 2018.

It offers access to the same development tools Samsung's internal developers use to create Bixby Capsules, which is what developers build to add features to Bixby.

Samsung on Wednesday said the move was in line with the company's goal of building a scalable, open Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform where developers and service providers can access tools to bring Bixby to more people and devices around the world.

"Our goal is to offer developers a robust, scalable and open AI platform that makes it easy for them to launch and evolve the amazing experiences they create for our users," said Kyunghak Hyun, Product Manager of the AI Product Management Group at Samsung.

"As Samsung's ecosystem of devices continues to grow, it creates more points of contact not just for Bixby, but for a growing number of third-party services as well. Developers have more ways to reach users, and users get more opportunities to make the most of them," Kyunghak said.

In order to scale Bixby services, Samsung announced that it will expand support to five new languages in the coming months, which includes British English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.
