Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Android Pie Upgrade Results in Bixby 2.0 Issues

Reports have surfaced of Samsung’s digital assistant Bixby’s new version 2.0 not functioning properly in the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ following an upgrade to the Android Pie OS from Oreo. They were working well with the previous Android OS and on Bixby 1.0. The reports claim it is Bixby to be blamed. Here is some more information on this latest development.

Bixby Not Responding to Many Commands

Samsung has had difficulties with Bixby from the very beginning. Immediately after it was introduced, the company realized that the software had not been adequately primed for different pronunciations of the English language and the users were advised to limit themselves to typed-in commands for Bixby to perform tasks and not to try the voice commands. But over a period, these issues were sorted out. As some users have reported, with Android Oreo and Bixby 1.0, Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ users had no difficulty at all. The issues have started after the upgrading to the Android Pie, which the phones recently received. And Samsung has updated the digital assistant to Bixby 2.0 as well. Some commands tried but failed by Bixby include fetching the YouTube subscription details, enabling Dolby Atmos and when asked to check for software updates.

Samsung might Have Rushed Through the Updates

Those who detected these bugs in Bixby feel the South Korean company could have released the firmware updates in a hurry. Possibly, the mandatory testing was not done fully at their end before giving the go-ahead to allow them to be downloaded and installed on the mobiles. There is a sense that these updates were originally planned to be out in January 2019. But for some reason, Samsung decided to push them this month ahead of that schedule.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Users May Hold on to Oreo

This report, therefore, suggests that if you are holding a Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ and running on the Android Oreo, it is advisable that you don’t rush to upgrade the firmware to the Android Pie. This is unless you are not so keen on using Bixby to obey your voice commands. Now that the issue has been reported, Samsung might start working on it and issue a patch to the Bixby 2.0 update. You will have to wait until then.
