Samsung has announced it will kill the old voice assistant ‘S Voice’ in its previous generation smartphones on June 1, 2020. The company posted this information on Samsung’s support page (first reported by Sammobile). Having said that, the decision to discontinue S Voice doesn’t come as a surprise because Samsung never developed it as a meaningful potential. Instead, we saw Bixby with release of Samsung Galaxy S8 series of phones. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite टैबलेट स्टायलस के साथ हो सकता है लॉन्च
