Now Galaxy S8 Users can Disable Bixby Button
As many people were getting annoyed with Bixby, Samsung has made it possible to disable the button to an extent. This button cannot be reassigned the button to a different function.
Samsung is rolling this functionality to users in the form of Bixby update. When you install it, you will get a toggle at the top of Bixby home that let you turn the button on and off.
However this button is not totally useless. One can press and hold it to activate Bixby Voice. Still, I bet that many users would welcome the ability to assign it to a completely different function. However toggle does not kill Bixby on your phone. One can still access it by swiping left on the home screen.
