Latest Update: Here we go! The Alpha_5.0 version of the App now supports the latest Samsung update. For those who haven't got the Samsung update yet, you will be pleased to know that BixBye will continue to work.

Latest Update: Tasker Plugin is now added - you can now BixBye to any complicated task.

Major Update: BixBye is now the only App to perform actions without launching Bixby itself (invisible to your slow, naked eyes!)

Hi everyone! After some private testing with some kind XDA members, introducing BixBye.

BixBye, lets you remap the Bixby button even after the Samsung patch, I have noticed more such Apps popping up. However, I have got some feedback that this one is a bit snappy. Let me know how is your experience.

As it goes without saying, the App is highly experimental and is in Alpha Stage, things may not work as you expect to. However, your feedback will definitely help me improve the App.

For this initial release there is some limited amount of options available, more will be added if the App works well for you guys.

Download from Google Play Store. (Please don't forget to leave a review at Google Play Store!)

BixBye in action:

UPDATE/NOTE: From the reports I have received so far, what I understand is that, Bixby itself is a bit inconsistent in its behaviour when the physical Bixby button is pressed. Sometimes it takes a single press to launch and at other times a double press or long press.

BixBye relies on Bixby to function. Once Bixby is in memory, you will notice that BixBye functions quite fast.

It's very likely that Samsung will issue more updates to improve the snappiness of Bixby itself, as a side effect BixBye will become even more snappy. So, updates from here on will be win-win for us.

Thank you @bstapley, @yaddam205 and @xPr0metheus for helping me test the App.

Thank you @theherkman, @xPr0metheus and @apoapostolov who have especially helped me do countless tests to optimize BixBye for Lockscreen! A lot of patience and time, much appreciated!

If anyone is interested in helping me test bleeding edge builds/experiments/improvements please PM me your Skype ID, timezone, free time availability.

What's new?
Version Alpha_4.1+:

#1 BixBye is now optimized for use on Lockscreen - however do note that you will see a flash of Bixby. Otherwise, when device is unlocked it would be as fast as you would expect.
#2 Removed 'Notification Drawer' option, as it doesn't play well with BixBye - can't 'toggle' Notification Drawer with the button.
#3 You can now BixBye to 'Back', 'Phone Dialer'.
Thanks for all the support, keep sharing the App.

Version Alpha_3.1:
  • Removed option to opt-in for Hola Network's resource sharing.
  • If you find the App useful for your device and would like to receive more development, please consider donating. Also, it will remove Ads.

Version Alpha_3.0:

#1 You can now BixBye to "Toggle Flashlight" and "Nothing".
#2 Ads can now be removed for free.
#3 Added donate link, forum link and other miscellaneous ones.

What's next? A free Tasker plugin will be available in next update.

Thank you all for the support.

Works for me on a exynos S8 up to date.

It would be even better if we could enable some options with the button, like immersive mode

Thanks for your job !

On T-Mobile and it does not work. If you turn it on, button does nothing. Turn it off and Bixby works. Installed from play store.

Edit: It does work with double press. Side note, if you uninstall it with it turned on it seems to disable the button.

It works half. I use it for going back to home. It opens Bixby in a flash and then goes home. So it opens the app
