UPDATE: Staying true to its word, Samsung has launched its Bixby voice assistant in 200 countries, including the UK and Australia. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users can now install the voice assistant by pressing the dedicated side button or swiping across the home screen to Bixby and following the prompts. Once installed, users can just say "Hi, Bixby" to activate the assistant.

The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to launch on Wednesday (August 23), but if you've already bought the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus you may be treated to a new feature the day before.
