Google app support is returning in Samsung Bixby 2.0

Bixby 2.0 (truly, Samsung is as yet persisting with the digital assistant) will bring back help for Google applications as indicated by VentureBeat (through XDA).

Samsung has effectively declared that smart TVs bearing the brand name will currently bolster fundamental Google Assistant commands (giving you as of now have a Google Home device) and this is one more refreshing ‘bend the knee’ effort by the South Korean tech giants that will no doubt be welcomed by fans around the world.

This implies on the off chance that you do happen to utilize Bixby (which to be reasonable isn’t totally terrible) bolster for Google Maps, Google Play, YouTube and Gmail will make a return. The initial release of Bixby 2.0 coincided with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and was then immediately passed on to the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

While this refresh is pleasant and all, it is as yet both puzzling and annoying that the help was removed at all, particularly considering that Bixby 1.0 launched with Google application bolster on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

This is every one of the somewhat coincidental with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S10 on the horizon, however that doesn’t make it a bad thing using any and all means. With respect to when this refresh is happening, well, we’re as yet not so sure, but rather a February launch alongside a potential S10 unveiling would be a solid bet.
