Samsung’s S voice servers shutting down on June 1st

Samsung’s S voice is shutting off it’s servers on June 1st, 2020. According to a report by SamMobile, S voice, Samsung’s assistant which was first used on the Samsung Galaxy S III is shutting off completely on June 1st. If you try to use it after June 1st, you get the error ““I’m unable to process your request. Try again later”. Samsung had paid very little attention to this device, and due to that, it was hardly ever used, so it phased out after Bixby launched.

 

Back in the early days, when most Android manufacturers were in a rat race to copy Apple’s Siri, Samsung too joined the race, and created it’s own version of Apple’s assistant, and named it S Voice. S Voice was Samsung’s primary voice assistant, until Bixby popped up in 2017. The Bixby project was created by Viv Labs, a voice assistant company founded by members of the same team who created Siri.

From the Galaxy S8 onwards, every device was launched with the new Bixby voice assistant. SamMobile has said that

The affected models that have the S Voice icon on the app screen include the Galaxy A3, A5, A7, A8, A9, Galaxy Note FE, Galaxy Note 2, 3, 4, 5, Galaxy S3, 4, S5, S6, S6 edge in addition to the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Galaxy W, Galaxy Tab 4, Galaxy Tab 4 8.0/10.1, Galaxy Tab S8.4 and S10.5.

 

Discontinuing S voice isn’t going to make many Samsung users sad, as people barely used it. The best alternative is the Google assistant. It’s literally the most commonly used assistant on all smartphones today, and has improved by leaps and bounds. So unless you upgrade to the latest Samsung device, Google assistant will be your S voice alternative for the time being.
