    Why doesn't Samsung have a stand alone hardware digital assistant for Bixby (no phone required)?

    I'd probably use it if they did.

    Lack of demand? Or interest? Without potential customers, they're not likely to make a product.

    Have you let them know you're interested? One request doesn't mean diddly-squat, but if a lot of 'one requests' come in, a company is more likely to start thinking about it.

    The Bixby setup splash just turns me off. I better get used to it though if I want to talk to my TV. I don't talk to my phone, I talk into it. I'll talk to my TV though. Maybe it will share with the phone?

    would make sense.......they have so many samsung products. it would be cool to be able to command their tv's, fridges, washer&dryers, and so forth.

    i never liked bixby on my phone, i immediately turn of bixby on all of my sammy phones.

    plus i use chromecast that's hooked up to my tv. i can command it with my Google mini and thenn i can stream netflix or disney+ withit.

    I have a Samsung TV now. It uses Bixby with that same damn splash.

  6. Bleh one of the first things I did when I got my S9 was turn off as much of Bixby as the settings would allow, then installed an app to remap the button so it could never come up accidentally.

    what's nice now with note 10 and up, you can program the bixby button to be something else. never really used bixby and most likely never will.

  8. I could do that on the S9 as well but only if I had a Samsung account which I don't. Hence the need for a third-party app to modify the button.

    really? seems odd they would make you do that. i have a sammy account and so was never asked that....i guess.

    And this is why there is no Bixby smart speaker or similar: the number of people who have Samsung phones and turn off Bixby (which is most of the Samsung owners I know) sends the message that it's a waste of time making one.

    You would think they would get the hint, and just ditch Bixby altogether.

    The fact that they don't, fully knowing that virtually nobody likes the crap, sends the message that the app is nefarious.
