How to Disable Bixby on your Samsung Galaxy Phone: Samsung is betting on Bixby, its artificial intelligence assistant sprayed on all aspects of the Galaxy S9 operating system. The problem is that Bixby is not a cup of tea for everyone, so you may find it difficult to truly enjoy your new Galaxy if you are not a Bixby fan. Luckily for you, after following a few quick steps, you can completely disable Bixby on the Galaxy S9.
If you have a Samsung phone that was launched in recent years, you probably have the Bixby voice assistant from the company inside.
Bixby debuted on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, and has since been included in all of the company’s high-end releases. There is no reason to think that Samsung will not continue to include it in future devices either.

Since Samsung announced the Galaxy S8 with its integrated assistant, Bixby, people have been asking for ways to turn it off and forget the button that once existed in the first place. With the Galaxy S9, that chorus is even stronger.
In order to disable Bixby completely, you will have to perform all the tasks below: at this moment there is no single way to turn it off.
How to disable the Bixby button
The button is the bi fggest complaint related to Bixby that we have heard from those who own Samsung’s biggest phones, since it is easy to press the button when you are trying to do something else such as lowering the volume of your phone.
To deactivate it,rom the home screen of your phone slide to the left to bring up the Bixby menu, or use the Bixby key for the last time. The menu will say ‘hello’ with your name on the top left and there is a balloon, a gear and three vertical dots on the top right.
Press the gear symbol and a small menu will appear that says ‘Bixby Key’ with a switch on the right that will allow you to turn off the main button. Turn that off and you’ll see that the Bixby key does not work when you give it a quick touch.
Unfortunately, Samsung does not allow you to re-assign the format so you can use the button for other functions of the phone, but we hope it is something that the company allows you to do in a future update.
How to disable Bixby voice
If you deactivated the Bixby button to start the application, you will still have to press and hold to open the voice assistant. If you want to turn it off, you will have to return to the Bixby application by swiping left on the home screen of your phone.
The three main icons (the globe, the gear and the points) will reappear, and this time you want to press the points, then touch ‘Settings’. In the second section, titled voice, you will see that the top option says ‘Bixby Voice’.
Again you can press this switch and turn off the function. Remember that this does not mean you should be without a voice assistant, since you can still use the Google Assistant on your device.
How to disable Bixby Home
Do you want to get rid of Bixby completely? If you bother with the service that appears on the left of the home screen, there is a way to disable it so you do not see it at all.
First, you will have to find space on the home screen and press long as if you were about to move some of the applications. Then, slide your finger to the left to go to the Bixby screen and you will see the name Bixby Home appear.
There is a toggle next to this, and you only have to press it once to turn it off. You can recover Bixby Home at any time by repeating the previous steps and simply pressing the button again.
There you have it: if you have completed all these steps, you have now disposed of Bixby from your Samsung device.
If you discover that you really omit elements of the voice assistant, remember that you can recover them all or some of them by repeating the previous relevant steps and simply pressing again to reactivate the functions.
That’s it, friends: after following all the steps listed above, you should live a free life of Bixby. Do you have any suggestions or tricks for us that we missed? Let us know in the comments.
