Saw this today on Android athority it's possible that the note 10 won't have a Bixby button, that would be awesome if there is no good more dedicated button for Bixby on Samsung devices πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘. Sorry Samsung Bixby can do some neat tricks but it's still not that great. I would say in the next year or 2 if Bixby is still not well recieved I would say Samsung will likely cut their losses. Then it would be bye bye Bixby. I would definitely say if Google assistant ends up getting some of the capabilities of Bixby, then bixby is definitely will be dead in the water.

Well - I'd rather have the Bixby button for Booting into Recovery / Download Mode than the hideous Home button & I like many people have re-purposed the Bixby button for Google Feed /Assistant or anything else - But Samsung seems to be on a track of removing things - ie: Notification LED - 3.5 Jack - So why not the Bixby button (although I'd be surprised if Samsung abandoned their fated foray into A.I.).... 🐧

personally I don't really care if the Bixby button stays or goes. if the Bixby button is going to stay at least make it remappable to whatever you want which would actually make it more useful. yeah, I know there are third-party apps to remap it to whatever you want but Samsung can at least add to the built-in remappable options that are more useful. I know I've said this many many times and perhaps starting to sound like a broken record. Bixby can do some neat tricks but only when you can actually understand what you're asking it LOL.

Well I agree with you - But if Bixby didn't exist - You'd still need (almost certainly at this time) some physical buttons to Boot into Recovery & Download Mode - If the only purpose of the "Bixby" button was to be used for Booting into Recovery and Download Mode - That'd be fine by me πŸ™‚πŸ§

yep I would agree, even just having that button on the side remap to do whatever you want would be awesome too πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

Well there's a lot of options available with bxActions - Apps - Actions - Settings etc - The screen shot is showing what I'm using bxActions for - Or you can just completely disable the Bixby button 🐧

Yes - It's the paid version - I'm not really sure what the difference is between the two as I always had the paid version...
