How to totally disable Bixby on your Samsung Galaxy
“Say less, do more”, Bixby, Samsung’s in-house AI assistant, is one feature you’ll almost certainly find on a Galaxy phone. Bixby assists you in maximizing the capabilities of your Samsung device. Bixby helps you get more done by knowing what you like and working with your favorite apps. Bixby learns your habits and suggests an automatic task routine so you don’t have to waste time doing the same things again and over. Below we have a tutorial on how you can totally disable Bixby on your Samsung Galaxy.
Why do you want to disable Bixby?
One of the biggest annoyances on phones with a dedicated Bixby button is its placement, which is exactly under the volume keys and virtually opposite the power buttons. This frequently leads to unintentional presses and unintended Bixby launches on larger phones like the Galaxy S10+ or Note 10+, especially when double-pressing the power button to access the camera. Samsung deleted the discrete Bixby button and integrated voice control access into the power button starting with the Galaxy Note 10 series and continuing through the S21 line today. Bixby Voice is activated by default when you hold down the power button, and you may use it to give commands to the phone. However, many people prefer to enter the power control menu by holding down the power button, so we’ll show you how to make that critical modification.
Bixby isn’t for everyone, so if you’re not a fan, you could find it difficult to get the most out of your new Galaxy phone. Fortunately, you can completely disable Bixby on your Samsung Galaxy phone by following a few simple steps.
How to disable the Bixby button on Galaxy S21, S20, Note 10, and Note 20 phones
The Bixby button is located on the right side of Samsung Galaxy S21, S20, and Note 20 phones and on the left side of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 phones, just below the volume keys. It also serves as the phone’s power button. Long-pressing that button activates Bixby, but you might just want it to be your power button. Here’s how to turn Bixby off completely on that button.
- To access the notifications menu, swipe down on the screen and then hit the power icon in the upper right corner.
- The power menu, as well as the Side Key settings selection, should appear on the screen. Continue by tapping on it.
- The settings, which include the Press and Hold choices, should be visible. Wake Bixby is enabled by default, but you can disable Bixby by tapping the Power off menu selection instead.
How can I turn off the “Hello, Bixby” feature?
Bixby Voice is perhaps the most beneficial Bixby function for most users. It’s a simple method to ask your phone a question without having to unlock it first. Some people don’t like Bixby Voice – Google Assistant is far more useful in some situations — and fortunately, there’s an easy way to turn it off.
- Open the Bixby app on your phone.
- Toggle the side menu open.
- Toggle to the settings icon.
- Turn off the Voice wake-up setting.
