Last Month, Samsung had launched Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones and along with them, introduced its AI-based Bixby assistant that helps users with multimodal functionality, its Voice feature lets users control multiple apps simultaneously using voice and touch commands interchangeably. It can be accessed with the help of a dedicated Bixby button. Now, it turns out that there is a way to customize this key to launch any app of user’s choice.
A Reddit user Homeguy123 has found a way to make the dedicated Bixby button work with the help from an app called All in one Gestures, as you can see from his YouTube video below. The process requires users to grant the application, available for free on Google Play, access to modify system settings. To follow the complete procedure head over to the link below.
Fortunately, the process is not complex, it does require the users to toggle certain settings in the accessibility section. With the help of this, users can choose to launch Google Assistant, which currently holds a superior hand due to support for many more languages than Bixby, with the dedicated Bixby button on the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+.
