Among the latest news related to the world of Bixby, Samsung announced the Bixby Developer Studio and Bixby Marketplace, each set of tools for third-party developers to make features for Bixby's virtual assistants and the stores used to distribute them.
According to Sammobile, Eui-Suk Chung, Samsung's vice president, said that his company was preparing to release the next third version of Bixby along with its first folding smartphone. "The new version of Bixby is currently underway on folding smartphones," said the executive, who does not yet know whether the name to be given for the new version will be & # 39; Bixby 3.0 & # 39 ;.

Bixby was first introduced to South Korea before arriving only in July 2017 in the United States.
