How to remap the Bixby button on your Samsung phone

Samsung recently released an update to the Bixby Home app adding one of the most requested features to its phones. Instantly, the once otherwise useless Bixby button on your phone gained the ability to open something other than the Bixby digital assistant.For all the Samsung users out there, including myself, this was an awakening. And a long time coming, too. We now had control over this once useless button without the need of any third party apps.EDITOR PICKSSamsung debuts Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit and Galaxy BudsSamsung Galaxy Fold: Six cameras and a $1,980 price tagSamsung Galaxy S10 family arrives with four modelsWhat’s the difference between Google Pay and Samsung Pay?Samsung Galaxy S10 come with six months of free Spotify PremiumFirst five things to do with your Samsung Galaxy WatchWith this update, the Bixby button now has two different options: single press and double press. Unfortunately, one of these still has to be reserved for the Bixby app itself. Whereas most of us would rather have control of both button shortcuts, at least we can customize one of them.It’s not perfect but it is progress.Enough talk, now let’s get to customizing that Bixby button. Before we begin, you’re going to need the latest version of the Bixby Home app. Make sure to check the Galaxy Store for any updates.Open Bixby by pressing the Bixby buttonTap on the three-dot options menuChoose SettingsScroll down and locate Bixby keyFrom here, you’ll be given the options to assign Bixby to a single press or double press of the button. Most likely, you’ll want to hide it behind the double press and take control of the single press for your own shortcut.Now, you have the power to open most apps on your phone with the single press of the Bixby button. I assigned mine to the Google Camera app because I tend to prefer its processing over the default Samsung camera app.You can also make use of quick commands or routines you can create with Bixby. For example, you can control functions on your phone such as turning on the flashlight, enabling do not disturb, or turning on Bluetooth. You can even chain commands to do all of these at once.Samsung includes several examples in the quick commands menu for you to choose from. The only downside is you cannot enable the button to toggle these both on and off. Meaning you can turn on the flashlight but not turn it off, making its usage rather limited.No Google. No AlexaEven though you now have a powerful way to use the Bixby button on your phone it still has limitations. For instance, Samsung will not allow you to assign another assistant such as Alexa or Google Assistant. It’s understandable why Samsung wouldn’t want that but it’s still a bummer.Take Things FurtherIf you’re looking for full control over your Bixby button including single press, double press, and even long press options, I would suggest the app called Bixi Button Remapper – bxActions.The app provides far more options and even gives you direct access to Google Assistant. Despite this third-party app offering more features, it’s still fantastic that Samsung finally added a native way to make the Bixby button more useful.
