I think what has happened here is samsung created a feature nobody wanted or asked for and is comepletley pointless its useless and since nobody uses it they gave us the optipn to disable it now their salty we dont like things that are literal ***** and now are forcing us to use a button located where your press it accidently on purpose because ***** phone companys theyre all jackasses and money hungry pieces of *****
I just downloaded pie on my S8 and i, too, was frustrated about now not being able to disable the Bixby button. I discovered that after updating the Bixby voice app (and anything Bixby related), I was given the option to designate the Bixby button to open my chosen app with a single click. I still had to leave Bixby opening as a double click.
I was naive enough to think that keeping my Samsung apps up to date would be wise for the smooth running of my phone, but how wrong I was. Now, even BX Actions can't stop it.
Also, even after uninstalling all Bixby updates, when I force stop all Bixby services they reactivate shortly after - how is this happening?
When I buy a phone I should be allowed to choose what apps I have on it, but clearly not with Samsung. If this is not a restraint of my freedom of choice then I don't know what is. Why are Samsung so adamant that Bixby is running on my handset that they're now pretty much forcing me to have this software running on my handset?
As of now I'm boycotting all Samsung products indefinitely.
It's all a bit sinister if you ask me.
Ahah I trusted Samsung over a decade now but I'm done with this brand.
I'm f****** p****d off because of your smartless tv that is not able to decode or even passthrough to my sound bar the most basic sound codec in the world, the DTS. My BR player is just a brick since I can't hear all BR with DTS codec, it's almost 100% of my BR library.
And nnw... I can't disabled this crappy bixbi useless app and reassign the DEDICATED button, yes DEDICATED button to launch this useless cr-app.
