We have already said that, and we will say it again: Bixby is shit. You should make better use of Google Assistant every day of the week. The good news is, it's now possible to reassign the pointless Bixby button without using a third-party app.
You do not need a Stinkin 'Bixby
Bixby is a pointless addition to Galaxy Phones and you & # 39; It's hard to say what Bixby can do anything that Google Assistant can not do better. Disabling Bixby is usually high on the list of how to improve a new Samsung phone.
Unfortunately until recently you could not do much about the Bixby button, which Samsung beats on phones like the Galaxy S8, S9, S1
Note: It is currently not possible to reassign the Bixby button to invoke the Google Assistant (or any other digital assistant). Just another app.
Mapping the Bixby Button
First, you need to open the Bixy app. So start the Bixby key to start it. Once the app is open (and you've gone through all the necessary settings), tap the three vertical dots in the center right of the screen.

First, make sure the Bixby app is up-to-date or you have won The remap option is not displayed. Scroll down and choose About Bixby.
Bixby must have at least version 2.1.04.18 for this to work. If you do not have that, tap the refresh button.
After updating, tap the three vertical dots and tap Settings again. Scroll down and look for "Bixby Key". Touch it.
You can not completely disable Bixy, which is horrible. The next best thing is to select the "Double-click to open Bixby" option, as it is unlikely that you will double-press by mistake.
 If you use the "Use single press" option in the "Double click" option, you can assign the single press to another app.

If you'd like to schedule a one-time push like Google Assistant, choose "Open app."
Then scroll to the app you want to use and tap on it – in this case the Google app.
And now your Bixby key is more useful. This is not perfect and it would be great if you could disable Bixby completely. But at least it is less likely that it will be triggered by mistake. And if you do not want the button to do anything, you can get closer to it – just do Bixby twice and do not assign anything to the option for a single press.
