These new features will be available in the Bixby Routine app and it will sync across all Samsung devices. Actually, this Bixby Routine feature is not a new feature. And we have often discussed the benefits and how to use it on Samsung smartphones in previous videos.
However, in this conference, Samsung explains a little about the “Modes” feature in Bixby Routine. and this feature little bit remind us of the focus feature in iOS that can directly sync with the lock screen display.
Then apart from that, Samsung also explained about the latest feature called “text-to-voice” in Bixby. This feature can directly convert the text that we type into sound. it can be used when we are getting a phone call but can’t pick up the phone and talk directly.
this feature looks quite interesting but unfortunately this feature can only be used in Korean and later for the English and Other Languages will be added in the future.

This feature certainly reminds us a little of the latest Lock screen feature that is recently available in iOS 16. And maybe this is Samsung’s answer to the new iOS 16 feature that comes with the lock screen customization, whereas in Samsung, this feature has already been available for a long time. even though it looks a little different from the lock screen display on iOS 16.
