Bixby in the Samsung Galaxy S8 button was introduced to be able to use the smart wizard without having to make any gesture on the screen. A button for users to use Yes or Yes is the Intelligent Assistant. However, if you’re that want to change the button’s function, now you can get it thanks to some applications that are available.
Changing the function of Bixby in the Galaxy S8
Bixby is the Intelligent Assistant that comes the Samsung Galaxy S8, and in theory it is really useful. But only in theory because there will always be users who do not create it as well. The best of Android is that it is generally always possible to fully customize the smartphone. Even at the beginning, it was possible to change the function of the physical button exclusively dedicated to Bixby, but later Samsung has decided that this feature is not available so the users have to use Yes or Yes Bixby.
Even so, it is now possible to use external applications to change the function of the physical button dedicated to Bixby. Specifically, we are going to talk about two of them.
Custom Bixby Button is one of the applications that we want to talk. This application allows us to assign to the button of Bixby the possibility that when pressed run any application rather than running the smart wizard. This can be useful if you want for example to assign to this button WhatsApp application or if you want to assign the camera application, for example. It is a good option if there is any application that we use much.

The other application from which we will talk about is BixRemap. This app is actually similar to the previous one, but it is limited to replace an Assistant on the other. If you don’t like Bixby, you can replace it with Google Now or Google Assistant with this application.
