Customers have been requesting for the ability to change the name of their Bixby Assistant without any action by Samsung for a while. From what I can tell it is possible to change the name in newer devices and if true great. However my Galaxy 8 has not aged out of usefulness and I have no interest in replacing it yet.
Why isn't Samsung responding to such a simple request? Users should be able to activate "their" assistant by saying anything they want. Not only is the name problematic for users that live in areas named "Bixby", are named, or have friends named "Bixby", but having a device assistant name known creates an EXTREME SECURITY ISSUE! Anyone's voice who is even close to my own can Unlock and access my device if Voice Wake-Up is turned on. This is a PROBLEM! Please supply an update that allows all users to rename Bixby Assistant anything they wish.
