Bixby button can now be completely disabled!

Samsung’s own digital assistant, Bixby, can now be fully disabled! Well no… I don’t believe Samsung will do that anytime soon. I use Bixby continuously for certain tasks and uses, I really proved to be helpful. But when it comes to the general opinion, it seems like Bixby is pretty hated. Many apps have been developed that focus on remapping the Bixby button, so that it could be used to launch something else, such as the camera or Google Assistant, but Samsung was quick at launching updates that disable those apps. Eventually, the company succumbed and rolled out an update that allowed users to disable the Bixby button. Even then the button could still be used (by holding it down) to summon Bixby. It seems like this isn’t the case anymore, with the latest Bixby update, Samsung has put an end to that, and now users have the options to disable the button entirely.

Bixby has been officially announced!

Today Samsung officially announced their new intelligence interface, Bixby, that will be on all new Samsung devices. The rumors about the launch of Bixby in the upcoming Galaxy S8 surfaced back when Samsung filed for the “Bixby” trademark at the beginning of this year.

In a press release, the company announced this new AI in the S8, as well as provide a bit of description on what this digital assistant can do (press release).  Bixby’s main competitor won’t be Siri or Cortana, but rather Google’s own Google Assistant that has been now made available to most Android devices.

Will Samsung’s Bixby be any different from its failed S Voice? In theory, Bixby is indeed very different, offering more and doing more. But this all can’t be confirmed until the Galaxy S8 is released.
