In 2016, Samsung was one of the most popular brands on the market, but now, Samsung has fallen behind rivals Apple and Google.
Samsung’s sales fell from more than 80 million smartphones in 2016 to about 56 million in 2017.
Its market share in 2018 was a record low of just 7.5 percent.
The company has been spending less and less on its voice assistant business.
The new 2018 flagship, the Galaxy S8, will reportedly feature the company’s first “personal assistant” feature.
That means it will be able to perform tasks such as telling you where to go, or automatically send you an alert when it detects that you’re on a flight.
According to Business Insider, the new feature will include a voice recognition feature that will recognize the user’s voice and then tell it to make an appointment, for example.
“The feature is expected to be released in late March, but we’re only now getting a look at it,” Business Insider’s Josh Lowenstein wrote.
“We’re told that the feature will allow Samsung’s latest smart assistant to work better with Samsung’s own devices, such as its Galaxy S9.”
Samsung’s 2018 Galaxy S7 was announced earlier this month, and it looks like the company is ramping up its efforts to make its voice assistants better.
This month, the company revealed the Samsung Smart Assistant, a voice assistant that will be available for free on new phones starting with the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy S6.
The Samsung Smart assistant, which was previously only available for the Galaxy Note 7, will include Samsung’s new S8 and S8 Plus handsets.
“Voice recognition is an essential part of our technology stack,” Samsung said in a statement.
“With the Samsung S8 we’re bringing voice recognition to a new level by adding a new feature that can be used across our entire suite of products.”
The Samsung Galaxy S 8, the S8+, and the S9 are slated to be announced at Mobile World Congress next week, but it’s unclear whether the company will release a new voice assistant to rival Apple’s Siri.
It’s also unclear whether or not the new Samsung smart assistant will be integrated into the Galaxy’s S8 or S9 handsets, though a Samsung spokesperson said the company would “evaluate the future of the Samsung voice assistant suite.”
Samsung is also rumored to be working on an all-new personal assistant for its 2018 flagship smartphone.
