I have a Galaxy S10+ which I bought outright. I connect it to my Samsung TV for gaming, and was considering a watch in future as I like my devices to work seamlessly together.
The button is now useless.
Can anyone at Samsung tell me why they have taken this cynical step, reducing the functionality of the device unless I surrender some privacy?
I think it may be time for me to look for a new device ecosystem.
Since recent update, this option is not available without agreeing to Bixby, as stated in the original post
Again. The options to change the function of the button, which to be clear are in the advanced settings that both replies have mentioned, are NOT available without signing away my privacy rights to Samsung for Bixby, which I do not use. It used to be possible, but Samsung have decided they would rather force some people to give up their privacy than allow full use of the phone's functions to all. They have also now updated the policy on Samsung Health to make it more intrusive and insist on more control of personal data and access to contacts.
SUCESS. I WAS ABLE to modify BIXBY KEY. One press on my S10 now opens gmail. TWO presses opens that YUK Bixby.
Why is Samsung so dictatorial and abusive?
