I just got the Watch and I thought Oh I will just have to change to Bixby. It does not understand me. I say hay google drive me home and it directs me to my house. Bixby tells me it does not know how to do that.
It has spelling errors and there is no way for me to just teach it. Like I want a feature if your forcing me to use Bixby let me teach it how to understand me. I will read the ***** thing a book if it would fix it.
Google works so much better and it is annoying that the watch cant use it. i get you want to fix Bixby and when you do send me a message and ask me to test out the latest verson so I can see if it is working. When Bixby cant open the GPS Drive app on your own phone when I ask it to? What is wrong with that.
Please I want this watch to work its my deam to have this watch where my phone will now be on my arm. You are destroying my dream cause I want to talk to my watch! And I dont need it to tell me it does not know how to do that yet.
Return it Saitaer! I bought a different Android watch and couldn't be happier with it. Happily using Google Assistant smoothly rather than fighting with Bixby. Bad move for Samsung to force Bixby on watch users because the simple answer is ditch the Samsung watch and buy one that actually works.
I tried to use Bixby on my new Galaxy watch but is is not really functioning. I use Google asssistant on my Samsung S6 and it works always great.
Please let the owners of the fantastic Galaxy watches make their own choice about which voice assistants want to use. Please help us with this issue!!!
Indeed it is terrible bixby is nowhere near what Google assistant is. But that's because simply of many many many more years of gathering data of millions of users voices and text messages. Bixby will never catch up but they're going to give it a shot I guess. What that means simply is it's impossible that they would ever switch and allow you to use GA unless there was absolutely no choice only when they couldn't sell one watch. Because if they don't force you to use it then the machine will never learn the dictation will never get better and the system will die. So either you kill the system and you use Google assistant or you force all users to use Bixby and sell less products. It's all sad but true
Just to reiterate everything others have posted on here, Bixby is utter *****. I am disappointed at the lack of communication from Samsung to put this right.
My watch is going on eBay as it is a complete waste not having the voice functions.
Still fed up with this watch! But do I sell it and push the pain on to someone else?
I don't have the heart to see anyone else feel the frustration from the lack of Google on this watch so shove it in the bottom draw and put it down to experience, thanks a lot Samsung 😤
Because if they don't force you to use it then the machine will never learn the dictation will never get better and the system will die
But no-one is using Bixby as its utter sh*te , Samsung cant force anyone to use it so its pretty much dead now. In my humble opinion they should cut their losses, shut down the Bixby team and open up Tizen to allow Assistant & Maps as a starter.
But they wont, end user feedback doesnt mean that much to them in my experience. money floods in so dont fix what isnt broke. The moment Google release (rumoured October) a Pixel watch I think Samsung may regret their decisions, they struck gold releasing when they did as WearOS is currently offering nothing groundbreaking..
If you talk to Bixby in an asian accent, it actually understands you. Clearly developed by the asian culture for the asian culture. Please hire a US English program trainer for Bixby so the other side of the world can also use it or just allow Google Assistant to install on the watch.
Are you listening to your paying customers Samsung? If GA isn't a choice, Apple always is.
As the tide of #bixbysucks continues to rise. we shall see if the Korean mind wakes up and #freegalaxywatch!!!!
Guys, check out my app on xda developers forum. GAssist.net - its currently in open alpha stage. It brings google assistant to galaxy watch and other Tizen smartwatches.
Here you are:
This looks promising! Following this with great hope and anticipation!
