Samsung Rolls Out Update That Enables Users Disable Bixby

Honestly Bixby is a great assistant, I can definitely attest to that but sometimes you can actually end up accidentally tapping the Bixby button on your device and it just comes up immediately.

I never thought this day would come

Samsung has rolled out an update to Bixby on the Galaxy Note 8 and likely on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ too that lets you disable the Bixby button from opening Bixby Home.

How To Turn Off Bixby

You'll need to update Bixby to get the feature. Just press that Bixby button to open Bixby Home.You should see a prompt to update Bixby (tap the “Update” option in the pop-up)

Once you're done with the update you'll see 3 icons close to "Hello Bixby.” They should look like the icons in the GIF above, with a globe icon, settings gear, and 3-dot menu.Tap that settings gear ⛭ and view the new setting appears that allows you to stop the Bixby button from opening Bixby Home.

If it doesn't work, you can also press and hold the Bixby button to activate Bixby Voice and say, “Bixby Settings.” That should open Bixby settings.

Scroll down and look for the “Bixby key” option. Tap that and then choose the “Don’t open anything” dot to again, disable Bixby Home from opening when the Bixby button is pressed.

It's not a full Bixby disable though. It only disables Bixby Home from opening when the Bixby button is accidentally pressed. You can still use Bixby through voice or by pressing and holding the Bixby button to activate Bixby Voice.
