It is still unclear whether the agreement would force Samsung to completely abolish Bixby and its application business or as Bloomberg says whether they simply need to integrate these services less into their own devices. No company confirmed the negotiations when the publication requested a statement.
A Google spokesman said:
“Like all Android device makers, Samsung can create its own app store and digital assistant. This is one of the great features of the Android platform. And while we regularly talk to partners about ways to improve the user experience, we don̵7;t plan to change that. “
Samsung’s statement is:
“Samsung continues to be committed to our own ecosystem and services. At the same time, Samsung works closely with Google and other partners to provide the best mobile services to our users. ‘ “
