Bixby N9

Hi Guys. 

 

I'm seeing mixed viewpoints in regards to being able to disable Bixby and the dedicated Bixby button on the Note 9. 

 

I appreciate Samsung will want to push their own Ai as much as possible but my preference is the Google Assistant. 

 

This is why I've turned it off on my s8. 

 

I'm not talking about remapping the button. 

 

Does the Samsung Team or anyone know with certainty if it can or can't be deactivated ?

Seems from first impressions threads elsewhere a person can disable the Bixby Home Screen but not the Bixby Dedicated Button right now.

Hi @BandOfBrothers had a update today and now if you go into bixby settings you can select bixby key and tell it to not open bixby (however if will still open bixby voice if long pressed)

I can't disable the button and it's very frustrating because an accidental button press when the screen is locked, makes Bixby the first screen that appears when the phone is unlocked ...very annoying. Otherwise phone seems great but this is very frustrating

Can I ask what version of Bixby you got please? I have no update yet but fingers crossed

Hi @Bades1978

 

I had a recent update to Bixby but cannot see the option you speak of. 

 

Wht is your exact route to the preference settings for Bixby please?

No worries.  

 

I'm aware of the Package Disabler option but prefer not to use it.

 

I'm sure Samsung will introduce the option at some point.
