Hello,
I've been using the Nokia 7 plus for two days now and it's a great device which I'm really happy with.

I have this really annoying problem with my navigations bar home button, whenever I press it there are these red, gree, blue and yellow dots popping off and if I long press it it opens up the Google Assistant.
Is there a way to disable these features or at least remove the long press to open up Google Assistant?

Settings - Apps & Notifications - Default apps - Assist & voice input - Set it to None

Thank you it works!

And now after I disabled Google Assistant from my home button can I use it with voice commands again?

Unfortunely no. It needs to be your assist app for voice commands to work.

you can use a different launcher. In nova launcher you can disable the home button behavior and still keep the voice command.
I do not know how can you remove the animations with the dots, though.
