Bixby Are you wondering why on earth Samsung announced the Galaxy S8 with its onboard assistant, Bixby. You might get frustrated with the Bixby button’s placement since the button is right under the volume keys and opposite the power buttons. Hence, with larger phones (the Galaxy S9+ and Note 8) this often leads to accidental presses and unintentional Bixby launches, particularly when you want to open the camera by double-pressing the power button.

So, here in this article, we will tell you different ways to solve this problem and disable it in a way that you will forget this button ever existed in the first place.

Bixby has two distinct categories:
• Bixby Voice
• Bixby Home
Voice feature works like walkie-talkie-style that lets you get stuff done by holding down the Bixby button for a moment. Here’s how to disable of Bixby Voice and, if you’re using Samsung’s launcher, Bixby Home.
