In South Korea, Samsung Pay users with the latest Samsung devices are now able to make the most of Bixby to begin a transaction using only their voice.

Bixby is the artificially intelligent virtual assistant included on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which now makes it possible to carry out P2P transfers and look into one's account balance with ease. Although the payment process may be initiated by a voice command, users will be required to use a biometric scan of an iris or fingerprint with Samsung Pass to complete a desired action.

Customers of the Woori Bank, Shinhan Bank and KEB Hana Bank with bank cards issued by Samsung Pay are now able to start initiating payments via compatible Samsung devices with Bixby.
