While Bixby suffered a delayed rollout and only formally launched earlier this summer, the assistant is slated to roll out globally soon. 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.

In South Korea, the feature has 1.3 million users and has accumulated 250 million voice commands so far.

Taylor Swift to release new album 'Reputation' in November
A new album? A new song? Thus, with all of the controversy lately, critics have been quick to call her reputation into question. Early this year, "I Don't Want To Live Forever", her duet with Zayn Malik, reached the No. 2 spot on the Hot 100.

Samsung's digital assistant Bixby will be updated with Spotify support later this year, according to an executive of the Seoul-based phone maker.

Compared to competing AI applications, such as Google Assistant and Apple's Siri, Bixby is deeply integrated into supporting Samsung devices, allowing it to manage any task that could also be carried out by touch or text, the company said. Although DJ Koh did not provide any details about the design and look of the smart speaker he did say it will be powered by Bixby. Support for other languages, devices, and third-party apps are expected to expand over time, Samsung added. He told the news network that "I am already working on it" and the company will soon announce it. CNBC was interviewing Koh ahead of the Note 8 smartphone launch.

Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees
The southpaw on Saturday surpassed 250 strikeouts for the season, becoming just the third pitcher to do so in his first 25 games. Jackie Bradley Jr.'s three RBI paced the Red Sox while the pitching staff combined to allow just three hits on the afternoon.

"Samsung now does not view artificial intelligence speakers as marketable, as the global market is already dominated by unbeatable Amazon and the Korean market is too small to make profits", an anonymous source told The Korea Herald. It will be interesting to see how consumers react to Samsung's iteration of smart speakers.
