Samsung Bixby Marketplace is Live
Alright, hey, hey guys, Mark Phillips with SimpliSpoken back for another SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. Today we’re talking about Samsung’s recent announcement that the big speed marketplace is now officially open in the US and Korea. So they have officially launched the Bixby marketplace, it is available on devices that have the version of Bixby 2.0, and above. So is a great announcement for folks that want to get into the Samsung big be developer ecosystem early. And so it’s pretty cool. So we’ve developed some Bixby capsules, we’ve worked a little bit with Roger Kirby, who’s been a big advocate for developers in that community. And just for a sort of philosophical question, because the capsule is a little bit different than I should say, a lot different than the development that you do for Google or Amazon. And so as we were going through that development process, we wanted to kind of stay true to the biggest be philosophy of goals and getting things done. And so it wasn’t just a straight sort of Port from, you know, the voice experiences that we built for Google or Amazon to Bixby. So it is maybe worth noting that for us, at least, we weren’t able to get access to that marketplace until our cell phone vendor released an update to the Android OS and then that marketplace became available after that. So the marketplaces pretty cool. They’re not a ton ton of third party independently developed capsules out there so there’s not 80 80,000 plus voice experiences to compete with. So as a kind of an early adopter. You have really a first mover advantage there. So encourage everyone to take a look at Bixby marketplace and big speed development. Thanks a lot guys. Please do hop over to the skill store and give us good review for the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing.
