Samsung updates Family Hub for connected fridges

Samsung updates Family Hub for connected fridges

Samsung says they are the #1 selling appliance brand in the United States and the fastest growing brand in the last nine years.

Another executive described the phone as "specialized for multitasking" and "highly useful for people who own both a smartphone and tablet". With the integration of SmartThings, owners can now see and control hundreds of Samsung and third-party smart home devices right from the refrigerator screen and by voice with Bixby.

At their conference at CES 2019, Samsung pushed connectivity across all products, using their own home brand voice-assistant and AI technology in your vehicle so you can enjoy a "connected auto experience" with its new Digital Cockpit 2019 and Bixby.

Uber, Ticketmaster and others are using Bixby to make their services more intelligent. What do you think of Samsung's new home appliance offerings? EE is also building subscribers interest by actively encouraging consumers to head to its "Coming Soon" web page where they can signup to get first-hand info about the devices.

For Entertainment, the company unveiled its largest yet QLED 8K TV, of 98 inches. In three short years, it's advanced from being an app-based experience anchored in the basics of life; to more connected apps that could talk to each other; to a wider reach with expansion to the rest of the smart home. With an improved AI algorithm that leverages a user's subscription services, favorite content, and TV viewing habits, the Universal Guide makes it easier for users to find the ideal show for them to watch.

CES is the first major trade show of the year.


Samsung's Family Hub has become a common feature with CES after having first been announced at the event back in 2016. "Today we are introducing the latest version of Family Hub featuring Bixby with AI capabilities". In addition, Bixby visually shows you information on the screen for a richer experience and displays an array of visual information. Family Hub also helps foster food management and connected home experience.

With the new Family Hub, users will not only be able to get feedback to questions asked, but the overall conversational tone between the user and the AI assistant should be more natural.

Samsung Space Monitor leverages its sleek design and functionality to allow users to focus on what's on the screen and not what's around it.

Samsung has been upfront about its work on a smartphone that has a folding screen.

However, since this device could be a hit or a miss, Samsung will play it safe.

In order to power tomorrow's AI technologies, Samsung emphasized that today's AI infrastructure must evolve to handle intelligence at the edge.
