    Free app Bixby Remapper allows you to remap the button for other purpose.

    This is what I use, and you can get rid of other crap you don't want. Just disable everything with the word bixby and the button function is gone.

    There are less features now after their update, I don't know what you lose since the developers complied with Google policy. I'm to scared to update it, so I haven't yet. The very reason I turn off auto update.

    I use Bixby fairly regularly, but never use the Bixby button - I get Bixby started with the simple voice command.

    Wonder if I could remap the button but still be able to use Bixby.

    Just went through Bixby issue.

    Enable. Update. Skip voice parts. Turn all features off. Even button.

    I also bought Bx Actions and Remapper but ended up restoring (undoing) the disable.

    Just disabling Bixby apps, home, voice, services, was not enough. Was constantly accidentally touching Bx button.

    That's how I use Bixby too. Remap the button with Bixby Remapper and you'll still be able to use Bixby with voice commands.
