Samsung’s digital assistant Bixby has been around since the debut of the Galaxy S8, and three years later it’s still a core part of every flagship from the company. With the Galaxy Note 10, Bixby has a new trigger and it’s also easier to disable than ever before. Here’s how to disable Bixby on the Galaxy Note 10.
The most intrusive place for Bixby on the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ is the “side key.” Samsung moved to a single button setup on the Galaxy Note 10, leaving just the side key and volume rocker on the left side of the phone. By default, the Galaxy Note 10 turns the screen on and off, but a long-press opens Bixby instead of the power menu.
Luckily, Samsung makes it easy to change that. If you head to Settings > Advanced Features > Side Keyyou’ll be able to swap a long-press from “Wake Bixby” to “Power off menu.” This same screen can also be used to customize what a double-press of the side key will do.
