Hi. I've been using Smsung Galaxy S8 for 2 weeks and I want to disable the Bixby button. Is there any solution to disable Bixby button? It was at below volume button.

I am saying this because I rarely use it and sometimes I accidentally press the button instead of Volume button since my hand is not that big. It really annoys me.

There was a time when Samsung restricted the option to disable the Bixby button, but since then they changed their mind and now you can turn it off with a simple setting. Here's how to do it:

  1. Press the Bixby button
  2. In the top menu bar, tap on the cogwheel
  3. Uncheck Bixby Key.

After this procedure, the button should be disabled. The only way to turn it on is to go to Settings and then use the Search function to locate Bixby.

Yes, it is actually possible to disable Bixby button completely. However, you can simply disable the Bixby button by going to settings or log pressing the B. Button>unckeck Bixby key
But, in order to disable it completely, you need to Disable Bixby Voice and Bixby home as well.
