Development on the Vega speaker was reportedly held up by delays in Samsung's proprietary Bixby virtual assistant, which is expected to power the device. From this perspective also, Samsung needs to quickly scale up the capabilities of Bixby. Bixby's deep integration is also built into the smartphone settings; plus, it also understands the way users actually speak, ask questions and make requests.
"The expansion of Bixby's voice capabilities is an initial step in the continued rollout of Bixby functionality", Injong Rhee, an executive vice president at Samsung, said in a statement. That's fine when Bixby is a non-essential feature on a phone, but it's another story for a speaker, where it would be the star attraction. However, Bixby has launched globally and it has been confirmed at the Unpacked event that Samsung are in fact working on a smart speaker powered by the personal assistant. Issues for Bixby included the difficulty translating Bixby into languages besides English and the program's lack of accumulated user experience compared to older assistant programs like Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant. "Maybe soon we will announce it". The forthcoming Samsung smart speaker will compete with the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod.
