Remap the Bixby key to open an app or run a command

Phone dispalying Bixby key options

Just like how Bixby can help with different things on your phone, the Bixby key can be used for multiple purposes as well. You can choose what happens when you press the Bixby key once or twice: quickly open your inbox or favorite game app, or prepare your phone for your daily commute by running a quick command. But pressing and holding the Bixby key will still always open Bixby Voice.

Note: This feature is only available for device running on Android Pie OS.

Remap the Bixby key

Thanks to a recent update, you can now remap the Bixby key to open any app of your choice or run a quick command.

Press the Bixby key to open Bixby Assistant Home. Then, tap More Options, and then tap Settings. Tap Bixby key, and then select an option.

You can use a single or double press to open Bixby. If you choose to open Bixby with a single press, you can double press to open another app or run a quick command - and vice versa. For example, tap Double press to open Bixby, and then tap Use single press. Tap the switch, and choose what you want to do when you single press the Bixby key. Then, follow the on-screen prompts to select an app or quick command.

Remap the Bixby key for single press or double press

On the Note10, the Side Key can be remapped to open different apps or perform different functions.

Note: This function can be turned off when you delete or deactivate the set app or quick command.
