    Has anybody tried remapping their Bixby button since Samsung announced they were going to disable the ability to do this?
    I tried the remapping the bixby button on a demo unit last week and it worked awesome. I used BXactions:

    If it's working for you on a model you bought (not a store demo) what's your carrier?

    I used BXActions to remap today on my AT&T S8+. No issues here. Might want to try to edit your title if possible.

    No, I kinda like Birthday Button :P haha

    But all kidding aside, yeah, Samsung should have included the ability to remap the button without the need for a 3rd party solution. Bixby is just meh (maybe with voice it'll get better, but until then, it's just yet another version of Google Now).

    Careful with that one if it's in your pocket. Might end up taking out a very warm phone with a very much depleted battery.

    Wait, I thought they blocked the remap ability?

    They removed it, if I'm not mistaken. It was supposed to be a stock option.

    There was a software update that is supposed to fix it, but as of this moment in time, that has not occurred and the remapping works with the app.

    Just installed on my sprint s8 plus and it works perfectly. I like that I can have it do 3 things with different pushes. Set it up for single press camera, double press flashlight and long press settings.

    They did block the remap but I don't believe the update has been pushed to all devices. And I recapped it to Google Now and Snapchat (when long pressed)

    This app is brilliant! For now I decided on single press for notification shade, double brings up Snapchat and long press toggles the flashlight. I may switch to something else for the single press when I think of something better, but I'm digging this a lot. Thanks to all!

    Ya I thought about that as well. If I start to see a problem I will change it.

    I can't get the double press or long press to work, my single press works just fine. Am I doing something wrong?

    At least for me I can remain the button. One click Google now, Theo clicks for flash and the for do not disturb but I also have a nagging notification telling me to update.


    I shall rebel for now .

    I have the T-Mobile latest update and it doesn't work. So if you want this functionality never update 😉

    For the people who haven't got the update to disable. Try the following app. I been using it since the note 7 recall and it's prevented my note from being shut down by the update. It also stops the annoying notifications.

    Well that was short lived. I was holding off on accepting the update to see if it would affect this. I must have accepted the update while under the influence last night. Argh! Lol

    Is there any way to envoke Bixby other than the hard button?

    If you use TouchWiz, swiping from left to right on your Homescreen would bring up Bixby. If you are using a third party launcher, you can set up an 'Activity' shortcut (if your launcher supports it, and I think most, if not all, do) to launch Bixby.

    hmmm. on a touchwiz screen swipe from left does nothing. But I can set an action from Nova, but it just crashes when launched with bx actions intercepting the button enabled. Anyway this could all be mot after the updates unless Samsung wants to be nice.

    You can do it for now on Verizon since they haven't released the zero day update yet
