20N Capsule SDK Release Notes

Updated: Jan 11, 2021

New Top-Level Bixby View Components Reference Documentation

To make reference documentation of Bixby View Components more discoverable, we've created a dedicated section for Bixby Views Components:

Bixby Views Components Reference

Please update any browser bookmarks accordingly.

Case Insensitive Category Names Deprecated

Category names are case-sensitive. You must use the category name exactly as listed in the category reference page.

Deprecation Stages (learn more)

  • Stage 1: This deprecation is currently in Stage 2. The capsule will continue to work for users, but you won't be able to make new submissions of your capsule into the Markeplace.

Single Child Shortcut Support for Conditionals

You can now use the parent: child shortcut with conditionals:

// using blocks
switch (this) {
case (FlowerArrangement) {
template ("Flower Arrangement")
}
case (Bouquet) {
template ("Bouquet")
}
}
// using shortcut syntax
switch (this) {
case (FlowerArrangement): template ("Flower Arrangement")
case (Bouquet): template ("Bouquet")
}

Confirmation Prompt Mode Change

The confirmation prompt users see when asking if they want a capsule to be the default for an NL category will always be in PositiveEmphasis mode, which lists the Confirm button first and then the Abort button. This specific user prompt mode cannot be changed, unlike other confirmation prompts, which you can change.

21B Capsule SDK Release Notes

Updated: March 16, 2021

New Ability to Autoplay and Loop Video

As part of Bixby Views, video now supports autoplay and loop, allowing you to automatically play and loop videos, respectively.

Note

Currently, there is an issue with loop on YouTube, which will be corrected soon. Also, autoplay is currently only supported on mobile and fridge devices.

section {
content {
video {
url ("https://example.com/loopy-video.mp4")
poster ("https://example.com/loop-poster.png")
loop (true)
autoplay (true)
}
}
}

New Join Mode for Spoken List Summaries

We've added a new DisjunctiveList join mode when Bixby provides spoken list summaries. This new key disjunctively joins separate items in a spoken list grammatically appropriate for the language, such as "Alpha, beta, or omega".

This differs from the two other modes:

  • ConjunctiveList: joins items in a spoken list grammatically appropriate for the language, such as "Alpha, beta, and omega".
  • Standalone: treats items in a spoken list as separate sentences, such as "Alpha. Beta. Omega."
