Galaxy Note8 - How to turn off the Bixby feature


Q: How can I turn off the Bixby feature?



A: You can select what happens when you push the Bixby key if you update Bixby to the latest version.


For example, you can choose to open Bixby Home as it does currently. Or, you can select “No Action”

if you do not want anything to happen when you “short press” the key.


Firstly please update your installed Bixby application to the latest version. You may check the

message about update when you activate Bixby. 


After then from Bixby Home screen,  tap More > Settings > Bixby key. Select what to open with the

Bixby key.


To turn off the Bixby feature when you “short press” the key, please tap “Don’t open anything”


This does not mean to deactivate Bixby Voice together. You can continue to press and hold the Bixby

key to access Bixby Voice.


Additionally to deactivate Bixby Voice feature, on Bixby Settings screen tap the Bixby Voice switch to

turn off the feature.
