Bixby Voice stops playback when connected to bluetooth heaphones
S9+ running current Android. When I listen to music or podcasts (multiple different apps) using wired heaphones with a microphone all works fine. When I connect bluetooth headphones the Bixby Voice assistant contstantly stops playback to say "I didn't catch that."
Bixby Home screen is removed, Bixby Voice settings have Automatic listening set to "never", Voice wake-up turned off, Bixby key set to "Double press to open Bixby" (there is no "off" setting).
Bixby can't be uninstalled or turned off. Thinking about rooting my phone just so I can get rid of it. I never use it.
Has anyone had this issue and found a solution? Multiple chats/emails with Samsung about how to disable Bixby Voice have not solved this.
