4/24/2017 – There is now another working method. Instructions have been updated.
As of 4/20/2017 T-Mobile has patched this in the latest update. Still waiting for a work around.
I recently just purchasing my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S8+. One of the features I did not like was Samsung’s new service Bixby.
Bixby is an artificial intelligence system that’s designed to make device interaction easier, specifically designed to avoid the complexity of increasingly fully-featured devices. It will make its debut on the Samsung Galaxy S8 devices, but is designed to work across a range of Samsung products.
In it’s launch format on the S8, it encompasses a range of different features, Bixby Voice, Bixby Vision, Bixby Home and Bixby Reminder, for example.
What Apps you will need to install:
bxActions (This will work after the update)
BixBye (This will work after the update)
BixRemap (This will work after the update)
All in one Gestures (This app is no longer working as of the 4/20/2017 update please use bxActions).
Step 1. First open up the Package Disabler Pro application. Under “Search Packages” we are going to stop all packages with the word “bixby“. Like shown below:
Step 2. Open up the bxActions application.
Clickon the “Remap” button and choose which application you would like to launch.
That’s it! Your bixby button is now mapped using the Google Assistant. Enjoy.
Please note ever since the patch Samsung released as of 4/20/2017 this method is still not 100% correct. It seem’s very laggy and sometimes unresponsive. I will update if I find a more stable release.
