Luckily this app works, but when I use the sound mode then after changing to silent via the buttons the phone goes back to sound. This is of course very annoying.

There is a way to make app work:-
1- enable developer mode .. but going to settings-> about -> build number.. press many times till developer mode open
2- in developer mode .. scroll down to open .. background check..
3-On background check.. disable bixpy service and bixpy voice..
4-now restart .. bxactions will work and button will be replaced on long press

bxactions was working for me without doing this for single press remapping. When I did this, it broke single press but long press became the single press action in bxactions..

Thanks again for the great work. I was doing some experiments kast night and completely removed Bixby on the phone. Now the button is dead. Is there anyway I can revive that button and remap it without having to factory reset it? It would be awesome if possible!

The new Beta is working great! Thanks so much for continuing to work hard on this even while Samsung is clearly trying to make life hard for this kind of app. I just purchased it to support you.

    As the Bixby button cant be disabled anymore on Bixby 2.0, double tap and long press features are not available currently

    Just pushed a new update which should be partially compatible with Note 9 ;)

    Should be online soon.

    There will be a new beta soon which will give you full access to the button on Note 9! Stay tuned!
