I want to turn off all Galaxy AI things. Why must these features be disabled individually?

Additonally, with the navigation bar, why were the "Recent Apps" and "Back" Swipe Gestures removed?

Is there a way to reenable those Swipe Gestures?

Can I reenable the "Hold Home for Google Assitant" option?

I do not like these changes in the recent update, and strongly dislike that the old options were removed entirely.

I think you may be misunderstanding. Google is taking away customization in android. The absurd iPhone clone gestures are stock Android gestures and Google has mandated all alternative navigation systems be removed to guarantee compatibility circle to search. Samsung is restoring their customization features via the first party Samsung Goodlock app. There is no other Android OEM that offers this. Do not expect Google to backtrack on this.

Galaxy AI is not a single app. It's not even really a thing, it's just a branding of various different AI features under one name, hence why theres no way to turn it off. Camera processing, for instance, now falls under the "galaxy ai" branding.

To turn the AI off open your phone settings and scroll down to Advanced Features  then Advanced intelligence and click each one and toggle off 

The Navigation bar you need to download the newest version of Navstar inside of Goodlock and toggle on show extra gestures and then exit goodlock and go to your phone settings - Navigation bar and setup the old style gestures

I understand how to turn off the AI features individually. My question was why MUST they be disabled indiviually? Why can we not turn off Galaxy AI as a whole?

I need to download a 3rd party app to get back settings that used to exist in my phone natively?

Would this 3rd party app also allow me to reenable the Google Assistant gesture I mentioned?

You would have to disable the Circle to search and I'm not sure since I haven't used the google hold for years my google works with voice in settings it shows you have to toggle on assistant app and that will be the new version of it swipe inwards from the bottom corner for the google app

I have already disabled that. As I am sure it is clear, I do not want to use any of the AI features, so I quickly disabled what I could. It did not grant the option to use the gesture as I have previously.

The only way to get the old gestures back is to download Goodlock by Samsung and Navstar

Good to know that Samsung is taking away settings and customisation features. I wonder what they will take away next.

Was it not a Samsung Update that just removed my customisation options though? And Goodlock Navstar does not appear to be made by Samsung, so they should not receive the credit for providing the work around.

It was a Samsung update built off of Google software
