For those with a Google Home device, Samsung has already announced that its smart TVs shall provide support to a few basic Google Assistant commands. And the latest update means that those using Bixby 2.0 shall now also be provided support for apps like Google Maps, Google Play, YouTube, and Gmail.
The launch of Bixby 2.0 was simultaneous with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It was then passed on to the devices next in line, Galaxy S9, and S9+. Its upcoming support for Google apps is a re-launch due to the fact of the support already being provided by the first version of Bixby which was launched alongside Galaxy S8 and S8+. And the re-launch is, perhaps not co-incidentally, scheduled simultaneously with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S10 this February. As of now, one can only wait for the events to unfurl to know more.
