Unfortunately, like the Galaxy S22, Bixby is still available on Samsung smartphones. Samsung has been getting rid of this in many areas of its smartphones in recent years. It’s like replacing the Bixby home on the left side of your home screen with Google Discover by default.

But it is still embedded in the power button. So when you press the power button longer to turn off your Galaxy S22 smartphone, it actually opens Bixby instead. So, today we will show you how to change this. And fortunately, this is a very simple change outside the box.

What is Bixby?

Bixby is Samsung’s own Smart Assistant, introduced in 2017 with the Galaxy S8. Samsung has been fully engaged with Bixby in recent years, putting the power button on its new smartphones.

Also, we are bringing this to all our devices. Samsung has also announced the Galaxy Home, a Bixby built-in smart speaker. However, it was never made available for purchase.

Compared to its competitors Google Assistant (pre-installed on all Android smartphones), Amazon Alexa and Apple’s Siri are no less than Bixby.

Even though there is no Bixby on the left side of the home screen, with the Galaxy S22, it is still accessible via the power button or the “side key”. It can be edited so that you are bringing up the Power menu instead of Bixby, but here’s how you can do it.

  • First, swipe down your Notification Panel`.
  • And then click the Power Menu button in the Quick Settings panel.
  • From there tap on the Side Key settings.
  • Now you can change the double press action to Quick Launch Camera or any other app. Or you can turn it off completely if you want.
  • You can also change the Press and Hold action on the power button to open the Power Off menu. It was present in almost every other smartphone that existed.

Bixby is gone from the power button. Samsung has already removed it from your home screen by default and replaced it with Google Discover. So this is really the only place where Bixby lives now. Unlike the camera. However, we all know that Google Lens is good.
