How to Remap the Bixby button on your Galaxy S10E

Samsung released the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and Galaxy S10E devices just a few days ago, so you moved pretty fast. Owning the Galaxy S10E handset is quite a big deal, you know! All these handsets brought in a lot of unique features, like the hole-punch display, power-sharing, and Bixby is there too. Will I hear a Hurray about that? I don’t think so.

This feature is highly controversial. Samsung even decided to include a dedicated button for its digital assistant on Galaxy phones since the Samsung Galaxy S8. Even so, people wanted to move away from it as far as possible. After all, the button is sitting on the left side of the phone, just below the volume rocker. That makes it ideal for accidental clicks, which triggers Bixby and there’s no fun. No fun at all!

One UI no longer lets you disable Bixby entirely, which is disappointing for your Galaxy S10E. But a recent update, as of February 2019, lets you remap that button to open any app you want like the camera, Twitter, Gmail, or what you have in mind. The process is really easy and you won’t have to worry about hacking or downloading any third-party apps.

You will just be able able to launch any app you want by single or double-pressing the Bixby button on the left side of your Galaxy phone. That’s how easy it is:
