How do I permanently disable Samsung Voice Input on Galaxy S8+?

JUMP TO SOLUTION
What I want to do it keep the Default Keyboard as Samsung Keyboard, but use the Google Voice Typing.

One Example is I am currently using Apps like the Messenger app and when trying to Voice-to-text, it uses Samsung Voice Input (which is Bixby powered). This voice input app is very clunky. It doesn't input correctly and is slow.

Google Voice Typing is FAR faster and FAR more accurate. I can be in my car, window down on the highway with the radio slightly on and it still picks up my words accurately.

I go into Settings > Language and input > On-screen keyboard > Manage Keyboards. From here I disable the Samsung Voice Input. After doing this, it sets the default to Google Voice Typing. This seems to work for a little bit.

The problem I have is that after an undisclosed amount of time the Samsung Voice Input feature re-activates itself and reverts back. It's very frustrating. I never had this problem on my S6 or S7 Edge.

Is there any way to permanently disable the Samsung Voice Input?

Click the 3 dots at the top right hand corner and select "show system apps" then scroll down and select "Samsung Voice input" with the Mic icon (not the Bixby icon) and disable Smiley Happy yw!
