Customising the Side Key on my Samsung Phone

Last Update date : Mar 25. 2024

If you can’t find the Power button on your Galaxy device, don’t panic. There’s no longer a separate Power and Bixby button. They have been intergrated into the Side Key button, and includes the Bixby functionality. It can be programmed to perform different tasks, whether you want to turn off your phone, call Bixby, or quick launch other applications installed on your phone. Follow the below guide to learn how to customise your Side Key options on your Galaxy Phone or Tablet.
