Bixby Home Studio Simplifies Voice Commands

Bixby's Developer Evangelist, Roger Kibbe, shared what’s new with Bixby Developer Studio and Bixby Home Studio. This year's newest update is Bixby Home Studio's voice control optimization tool on SmartThings home devices. ASR, NLU, and an entire command system are now completed locally on one device. What this means is Bixby Home Studio allows developers to create code that helps consumers complete multiple tasks with a single command on the phone. Imagine, you can ask to turn on your AC, and Bixby Home Studio also checks to see if you have any windows open.
