Samsung just made Bixby official unintentionally with Samsung Pay integration

In case you didn’t know, Bixby is Samsung’s answer to Google Assistant and Apple Siri. Oh, and also Amazon’s Alexa, which you would soon see in a Huawei Mate 9 if you live in USA, which in turn would release on UK soil with carrier 3 on Friday, January 13.

So, where were we? Yeah, while testing a launch site for Samsung Pay, or so it seems, Samsung posted a screenshot or two, of the supposed Samsung Pay app menu, wherein you get to select Bixby for Samsung Pay.

Well, that’s our out-and-out hint that Samsung plans to integrate the Bixby AI with its payment service called Samsung Pay, and if the Samsung AI is headed there at the least, then why not everywhere (on Galaxy S8 perhaps, or the Galaxy X, or X1, or X1 Plus).

Excited?
