Re: Can't disable the Bixby button after the Android Pie update

JUMP TO SOLUTION

 

 

After Samsung has spent Millions and millions of dollars on Bixby

 

How many people do you think you have made mad because of Bixby "

 

People continue to ask about wanting Bixby gone.

But what does Samsung Do.

Keep digging a hole deeper and deeper because you have spend so much money and incorporated Bixby in your phone.

Me personally. 

If I has the money to buy Samsung,

The very 1st person to loose their job is the people that like Bixby.

 

Samsung don't seem to understand and can't hear.

We DON'T Like or want Bixby

We want to use Google

 

Now how hard was that.

 

Can't wait til more and more people stop buying Samsung phones because some Genius at Samsung likes and loves Bixby

 

And what are we told.

Make the Bixby button do something else.

 

How about having a Way the Bixby is totally removed from everything on the Samsung Phones.

 

Oh. I know the folks at the Big Round table has spoken.

We are not removing Bixby.

 

They would be escorted off the property.

They have bad decision making and DO NOT LISTEN TO THEIR CUSTOMERS .

 

Samsung has become too big of a company

how about you stop forcing people to use Bixby when they don't want to and let us reconfigure the button to suite our needs. Better yet let people who don't want it uninstall Bixby as she's just a waste of space

Changing to a double tap is not a solution at all!

Do you not get it yet? ...EVERYONE HATES BIXBY!

 

We want to DISABLE the key COMPLETLEY

or alternatively REMAP to an app of OUR CHOICE on OUR phone!

 

Not YOUR choice Samsung! ...im completly sick of Samsung, Microsoft, Google & all the big companies FORCING THEIR CHANGE onto us telling us "this is what you want" ...no it's NOT!

 

Waht we want is freedom of choice for how we configure OUR PREFERENCES of the  software / hardware THAT WE PAID YOU FOR!

Well i have that setting on but it still opens because when i turn down my volume i turn it down with purpose, which means 2-5 clicks at a time.

I have changed the setting to only allow Bixby to open when I double press the stupid button, but it doesn't work. I accidentally bump the Bixby button and Bixby pops up in two separate screens so then I then have to close them both out and then try to go back to whatever I was doing. I want Bixby gone! I would like a solution otherwise this will be my last Samsung phone and I will stop supporting the brand all together because this is absolutely ridiculous. Every update brings Bixby back and this last update won't even let me set it back to the double press

You guys are literally just repeating yourselves about changing the setting. Why force your loyal customers to use an application that they don't want? You guys are partnered with Google and I use ok Google for all of that stuff. Bixby is literally nothing more than a major inconvenience even with the double press button. I am still somehow able to constantly start it up. Don't know how, not changing to double click to activate has done nothing but continue to annoy me and be the one thing about these phones that literally is beginning to make me change brands because it happens at least once a day, if not more

I completely agree.  Trying to force users to use certain proprietary features is very Apple of you.  Giving users the option to configure their devices tailored to their needs is what makes android so much better than Apple.  The bixby feature key is too easily pressed accidentally.  Even giving users the option to require the key to be pressed twice is still not enough.  If the users is not going to use the feature, why not give them the option to disable it?  If you really wanted to go above and beyond, you should allow users to remap the key to be used for various other functions, such as the camera or perhaps custom profiles.  For example, a "work" profile or "home" or even "driving" profiles.  In wich users could customize the profile to contain certain preset options like having the volume off and brightness at a certain level when using the "work" profile.  Or certain features turned on or off for "driving" and many other things.  Either way, the option to disable the physical key should be returned.  Every single samsung/android user I know, dislikes this feature.

And what if button is somehow stuck? This last update has my phone allowing Bixby a service I've never used in 2 yrs of having my Note8 randomly popping up and recording everything I say. Its draining by battery 3-4 times a day. And although I won't go to Apple I'm very close to leaving Samsung over this. I need to be able to stop it from recording and typing every word that is said around it. I've force stop it and it restarts. I've tried blocking and not allowing permissions however nothing works. Every 4-5 hours my phone is dead from just sitting on table typing all my convo it is intrusive

Did you find any solution to this problem?  I have an S8 and I'm experiencing the same issue.
