Hello, is it possible to deactivate Bixby? It keeps randomly interrupting my viewing by muting audio and looking for further voice commands when I’m watching something. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks.
At this time, there is not an authorized way to remove your Bixby AI.
I just got a brand new QLED 49 inch 2019 model which has the Bixby voice and it interrupts TV viewing continuously and mutes the sound and it's annoying. I'd like to get rid of the feature from the TV altogether. So what I found out as I have a 39 inch Samsung which the remote works with the new QLed TV and works much better with it as to accessing channels and ALL it's features, I'm getting rid of the new remote that came with the TV and ordering a replacement. It will be so nice to just push a NUMBER button which the other remote does NOT have and just go right to the channel.
Go to settings/general/Bixby voice settings/voice wake up and set it to off. I did this a couple days ago and Bixby hasn't bothered me since.
Hope this helps
Just say "hi Bixby, turn off voice wake up" she will reply with "All set" and now you will be able to watch your shows in peace and still be able to utilize Bixby at your discretion instead of hers. =)
Thanks for the tip, it performed as you said, it now appears that the irritating Bixby has been slain! Have to run it for a few days before I declare final victory.
Thanks again, even though I have many years of experience with computers (wrote my first program in college in 1966) they still get the best of me at times. I always keep in mind the sign we had on the console of that original IBM 1620 computer so many years ago:
I am a computer
I am dumber than any human
And smarter than any programmer
