Bixby Button on Samsung Galaxy S8 can be remapped- Here's How

Samsung Galaxy S8 duo really took a huge step forward in terms of features and performance when compared the last iteration in Samsung’s Galaxy S-series. Although Bixby in specific, isn’t that much of a thriller. Mainly because as of now, Bixby is more of an under-development “prototype” rather than a robust AI system with vast functionality.

Such views on Samsung’s AI voice assistant might make the “Bixby Button” useless for you. Don’t do that, there as an even better solution, as seen in a recent video posted on Reddit. Apparently, you can remap the Bixby Button to perform some other function, or activate some other application, like the much more advanced Google Assistant.

Dylan Bertwell, a famous YouTuber decided to play around with a Galaxy S8 in a Best Buy Store. Somewhere along his pointless fondling in the handset’s system, Dylan decided to try the “All in One Gestures” application. The application – available on Google Play – can easily remap the Bixby Button to activate any other app.

Dylan then demonstrated the remapped function of the Bixby Button on the video before pressing the ‘stop’ button on his camera. As we remember, Samsung Galaxy S7 Active also had a dedicated key which was supposed to activate Samsung Activity application. The button could easily be remapped to activate any other application, it’s a cool customizable feature to make your experience even better with the Galaxy S-series smartphones.
