    If so, what's the way to completely disable the button?

    I'm not seeing a point to it currently.

    I'm still holding out hope for Bixby when they finally get it fully functional. If it doesn't wow me I'll use the new method to remap the button to Google Assistant.

    ABSOLUTELY. Half baked or not, it is a useless feature

    How do you disable the button?

    It's pointless and Bixby vision sucks

    I have one called bxActions. I like this one because, unlike some of the others, Bixby does not pop up for a split second before the app you want comes up.

    Looks like a paid app to me.

    Yes it is a paid app. You can use the debloater tool to disable the Bixby apps as well. No root required, but you will need a computer and the initial setup is a little involved.

    I didn't disable either the voice input or the wake-up in case they were also used for other voice duties. Doubt they use much overhead anyway.

    I'm not sure why people are so eager to disable the Bixby button. Why not just don't double tap it so that it won't activate Bixby? I know at the moment the software is not ready and installed yet, but why not just ignore it? If you like using Google now thankfully Samsung didnt remove or block it. Also if you like google now you should like Bixby when it becomes fully functional and perhaps with more features than GN. Remapping the button to use GN seems unnecessary to me, but that's just me, because GN already have the home button you can press. For me, I look forward to using Bixby.

    My concern is saving battery, then also it's a redundancy as Google Now currently does all that I need anyway. IF Bixby comes back in a huge way then I'd re enable it and see what it can do.

    "Disable Bixby or not?"

    Yes, give him a hard kicking and then remap him to another application!

    Samsung should not have released Bixby so early. Barely even beta level and any consumer faith appears close to destroyed already. Battery fail and now Bixby fail. The killers B's.
