Owners of Galaxy phones released from 2020 to here, such as the Galaxy A51, A71 or Galaxy S20, may have found a beautiful inconvenience when turning off the phone: the Bixby, which is activated by default when we press the traditional Power button. Samsung uses this device to let more people know the assistant, since there is no longer a unique button for it.
The switch-off command has become another: press the volume down button and power at the same time for a few seconds. But if you didn’t like this new pattern, the good news is that you can remap the Power button to turn off your smartphone again normally. Here’s how to do this in the steps below.
How to disable Bixby on the Power button of the Galaxy phone
- Access the quick settings area of your smartphone by swiping from top to bottom at the top of the screen.
- Tap the “Power” icon (“On/Off”).
- Tap “Side Key Settings.”
- In the “Hold down” section, change the dial to “Menu Off”.
Ready! From now on, whenever you hold down the Power button for a few seconds, you can turn off your smartphone normally without activating Bixby.
It’s worth noting that if you’ve already set up Bixby on your phone, you can still activate the wizard through the voice command “Hi, Bixby!”. If you want, you can turn off the feature by going to Phone Settings and searching for “Bixby Voice”.
