After years of user complaints, Samsung now lets us re-assign the Bixby button without using a third-party app. For the new feature, One UI requires a simple app update for Bixby. However, there is one major drawback: Samsung does not let you reassign the button to open other digital wizards such as Amazon Echo, Microsoft Cortana, and Google Assistant.
