Samsung's Bixby assistant will soon get sports scores and breaking news courtesy of theScore. In Bixby Home, owners of Galaxy devices with Bixby will be able to get sports headlines and scores for FIFA World Cup soccer, NFL football, NBA basketball, NHL hockey, MLB baseball, and EPL soccer. Users will also be able to select their favorite teams and leagues for quicker access.
Here's what John Levy, CEO and Founder of theScore, had to say about this Bixby news:
“We are happy to provide theScore updates through Bixby. This enables us to showcase the features that have made theScore one of the most popular sports apps in North America to a huge audience, delivering sports fans on Bixby Home a highly-customizable experience and access to their scores and news headlines at a glance.”
The digital assistant market is a fierce one, and Bixby faces serious competition from the likes of Google and Amazon. The good news for owners of Galaxy devices is that Samsung continues to improve Bixby, and the addition of sports news and scores from theScore looks like a solid addition.
