theScore has struck a deal with Samsung to become the sports provider for the company's assistant, Bixby. This means that all of the scores, highlights, news and other aspects of any game will come from theScore. Which is a very popular app on both Android and iOS, and believe it or not, is located in Canada. Even though it is providing Bixby US sports information.
For users, this partnership won't mean too much, as you're still going to get the same sports information that Bixby already provides you. But now, you should get more comprehensive sports information thanks to theScore. With Bixby, you'll be able to fully customize what sports information is shown in your feed. That includes specific sports and specific teams. So that if you are wanting to keep on top of the latest scores from the World Cup, you can add that to your Bixby feed. Or if you want to keep up with the LA Lakers now that LeBron has moved out West, you can also do that. In the cards, on Bixby, you will see a little 'theScore" logo in the corner, which will take you to theScore app. If you don't have the app installed, you should definitely install it. It's a great app to use, especially if you do keep up with different sports.
theScore's founder and CEO, John Levy stated that "we are happy to provide theScore updates through Bixby. This enables us to showcase the features that have made theScore one of the most popular sports apps in North America to a huge audience, delivering sports fans on Bixby Home a highly-customizable experience and access to their scores and news headlines at a glance." This deal is definitely going to help out theScore, which was already doing quite well, but it's going to get its sports app in front of more eyeballs, and likely get even more downloads. This information will be available in Bixby Home for users of the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8. It will also likely be available on the Galaxy Note 9, which is being announced next month.
