The Galaxy S8 series from Samsung was released from the company earlier this year and it is the smartphone series from the company whereas the Galaxy Note 8 was released just last month and it is the flagship smartphone from the Galaxy Note series of the company known for its bigger smartphones. Also, we have known that this year all the Samsung flagship smartphone came with the personal virtual assistant developed by Samsung known as Bixby. This means that there has to be a way to trigger Bixby so that it is easy for users to use the assistant.

This made Samsung place a dedicated key in order to trigger the Bixy assistant and this button was present on the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and also the recently launched Galaxy Note 8. Now, all is not well here as most of the users were or are not happy with Bixby and wanted to use another assistant like Google Assistant or another app. This made people waste the button and now the company has allowed to turn off Bixby triggering via that button, finally.

Funnily enough, in order to turn off Bixby, you will have to press the Bixby button and you will see a toggle to turn off Bixby as shown in the screenshot down below so that Bixby will be turned off and you will not be accidentally pressing and invoking Bixby again.
