How to Properly Remap Bixby Button Without Root


Seriously, is it just me or does it seem like with each new phone comes some sort of new virtual assistant? I mean c’mon, some of these new phones are even starting to come with multiple assistants.

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy Note 8, S8 and S8+ with the company’s very own virtual assistant called Bixby. It even has a dedicated button. Now because a majority of Bixby’s functions are all doable through Google, we decided to put together a quick guide to help you remap (repurpose) Samsung’s Bixby button.

How to Remap Bixby Button on Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8 and S8 Plus:

  • Download BK Package Disabler (Samsung) from the Play Store. Yes, it costs $1.49.
  • Download BK Plugin 2
  • Launch BK Package Disabler and slide over to the right for SYSTEM.
  • Apply check marks to all functions to completely disable Bixby. Full list below.
  • *Continue only if you want to remap the Bixby button.
  • Download bxActions Bixby Button Remapper & bxActions Pro – Yes, it $1.99.
  • Launch bxActions and start app process
  • Connect device to computer
  • Allow access to phone data
  • Locate your device
  • Locate bxActions file
  • Open application within the file
  • Open bxActions app on phone to enable rempapping
  • Grant app permission for bxActions – Bixby button
  • Disable Bixby Home (may have to be enabled beforehand then disabled)
  • Make sure to keep Bixby button remapping enabled
  • Open “Actions” to customize your desired actions
  • Choose your actions then test

And that’s all there is to it. From this moment on, Samsung’s Bixby button  can be used with the actions of your choice.
