Hello,

I have a Samsung s21+ and I recently enabled 'circle to search' in the latest update, which is activated when I hold down the home button.

However, the CtS feature has overridden the Google assistant when I hold down the Home Button, which I use the Assistant quite often, so when I disabled CtS.

But now when I hold the home button, nothing happens now. The only way to activate the assistant is to slide my finger from the bottom corners (which I'm not a fan of, especially if I'm accidently hitting the back button or the background apps button)

How can I re-enable the Google Assistant to the home button?

So for Circle to search you know how to use that, but to get the Google Assistant you have to swipe up and hold down diagonally from the bottom right corner towards the top left corner only about an inch or so though.

That's not what I'm asking. You just merely restated what I already said in my previous post.

Sorry, I guess I didn't totally read it. I did investigate just now, and I don't see a way on how to do that. I suggest downloading good lock, and seeing if it gives you any button remap options there.

I don't think there is a way to do that. Maybe, Samsung might add the ability to change this in GoodLock module in the future.

That's such a weird and stupid way Samsung pulled that on users.
"Use Circle to Search or we'll disable your home button" at least give us the option
