Samsung reportedly considering a Google deal that would deprioritize Bixby

For some time now, Bixby hasnt been much of a talking point for Samsung. It seems that the smart assistant has lost its luster even for the company that once touted it as the centerpiece of its massive hardware ecosystem. And now, according to a new report, Samsung is consider dropping the smart assistant from its mobile devices altogether.
Word comes from Reuters this week, citing a correspondence. Details are vague, and Samsung is unsurprisingly pushing back on the suggestion that its dramatically scaling back its commitment to Bixby. The hardware powerhouse denies the suggestion that its going to be dropping the software and/or its Galaxy Store store from its own devices.
A spokesperson tells TechCrunch, Samsung remains committed to our own ecosystem and services. At the same time, Samsung closely works with Google and other partners to offer the best mobile experiences for our users. They add, more specifically, Samsung will continue to offer Bixby and Galaxy Store on its devices. Both services are an important part of the Galaxy ecosystem.
