Are you tired of Bixby launching in your pocket with the button pressed by mistake? Or, maybe you don’t need to use Bixby. (I know I’m tired of Siri!) Whatever may be the case, if you want to disable Bixby Button on Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, we’ve got your back!
Bixby was introduced last year, to compete with Apple’s Siri and Google’s Alexa. Even though, Bixby has several unique features, it’s not as popular as Samsung wanted it to be. To be fair, Bixby is very intelligent and has a better voice that most smart assistants. However, some people think the Bixby button is in the wrong position, and find it irritating.
In addition to the Bixby button not being in a comfortable place, there’s no to it. The button is right under the Volume rocker. This means it might get pressed accidentally a lot! And, Samsung has made sure that you can’t remap the Bixby button or use it for something else. However, we’re going to help you disable the Bixby button!
