Hey you giant monolithic corporations who must control all aspects of your customer "experience" the least you can do is test the mf thoroughly before releasing.
This program is so badly intrusive and impossible to disable I am seriously considering other options that don't include Samsung.
My 2 cents.
She is really good in routines and Samsung version of spam call filter. Definitely sucks at being search engine do. But can't the deny the fact Bixby has made itself into decent phone controlling assistant.
if you'd like, you can disable Bixby. otherwise, I use it often for device control when my hands are occupied. open the Bixby app and shut everything down. problem solved.
