Remap the Bixby key to open an app or run a command
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 prepare your phone for your daily commute by running a quick command. Just remember that pressing and holding the Bixby key will still always open Bixby Voice.
Note: The following instructions only work on phones that have a dedicated Bixby key on their left side, such as the S10 and lower. The Note10, Note20, Fold, Z Flip, and S20 series have a Side key instead of a Bixby key. The Side key can be customized to open Bixby or perform other actions.
Remap the Bixby key
Keep opening Bixby by accident? You can remap the Bixby key to open any app of your choice or run a quick command.
Open Bixby Assistant Home by pressing the Bixby key.
Then, tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap the name of your desired device.
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 the Bixby key 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 app to open or what quick command to run when you you single press the Bixby key.
Note: This function may be turned off when you reset Bixby or deactivate the chosen app or quick command.
