Samsung officially declared that the Bixby voice assistant of Samsung Galaxy phones has now brought a Chinese wake-up word ” Hi, Samsung Xiaobei “.
This new word will start supporting the newly launched Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. Note that only China in the world supports wake words in two languages. You can now switch between Chinese and English wake words at any time as per your requirement.
- English wake words: Hi Bixby, Bixby
- Chinese wake-up word: Hi, Samsung Xiaobei
For your information, the wake-up word “Samsung Xiaobei” was provided and used in Samsung TVs and other products before. Now it seems the phone devices are ready to feel the experience.
Some users asked Samsung to change the word “Hi, Samsung Xiaobei” as this word is difficult to pronounce. Can it be changed to “Hi, Xiaobei”? Samsung officially said no, because “Xiao Bei” has been registered as a trademark by other companies, so it cannot be used.
Bixby is a virtual assistant developed by Samsung Electronics. It represents a major reboot for S Voice, Samsung’s voice assistant app introduced in 2012. On Samsung Galaxy phones there is a dedicated Bixby button on the left is a handy way to call up Bixby. A short press on the Bixby button takes you to the Bixby main page.
