How to remap the Bixby button on most recent Samsung Galaxy devices!
Samsung introduced the Bixby button on the
Samsung Galaxy S8 family of devices. It is useful for basic stuff like taking screenshots or setting reminders. However, it’s also a button you can hit accidentally a lot and the general consensus says
Android 9.0 Pie and One UI update.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to remap the Bixby button on all compatible Samsung Galaxy devices.
Compatible Samsung devices
These methods should work on most recent Samsung devices. It requires the device to have One UI and the
Android 9.0 Pie update. Otherwise it won’t work at all. The following devices should be able to use this tutorial:
How to natively remap the Bixby button
The stock software lets you remap the Bixby button without any third party software. Simply make sure that your Bixby Voice app — accessible by pressing the Bixby button once — is up to date and you’re ready to roll. The first method is the one that you’ve probably read everywhere so far.
Using the button to open an app is awesome. However, we found Quick Commands a little wanting in real world use.We recommend the first method to people who don’t really like Bixby and want to hide it as best as they can. The second method is still a great option for those who use Bixby and want the double press to add a bit of functionality. In our testing, we used the extra functionality to open Samsung Pay or the camera.
There are some restrictions. You can’t natively select
Google Assistant or
Amazon Alexa, but all other apps should be available. We also recommend you avoid the Quick Commands unless you really want them. We found them to be slow and a little clunky.
How to remap the button to Google Assistant
People like remapping the Bixby button to Google Assistant. You can’t use the above method for this, but there is an alternate method to get what you want:
There is a second method that uses Bixby’s Quick Commands to open an assistant app. However, we found that method clunky, inconsistent, and slow. We recommend using the third-party APK method.
Remap Bixby with apps from Google Play
There is one final method to remap the Bixby button. This one uses third-party apps from the Play Store to change what the Bixby button does. It’s not as clean as Samsung’s method. However, these apps can do things the native solution can’t. Some examples include remapping the volume keys, having the Bixby button toggle the flashlight on and off, and even control your music.
Bixbi Button Remapper is one of our favorites. It’s free and includes some fun functions.
Button Remapper works with a bunch of buttons, but also includes support for Bixby. Search the Play Store for more if one of those two don’t work.
