I found kind of strange workaround to use voice activation.

If I open Deezer play a song for 1-2sec and go back to the homescreen (leave deezer open in background) Voice activation works even if the screen is off.
Strange thing is that deezer has to be open, as soon as i close it, it doesn't work anymore.

Can someone reproduce this? Maybe it helps to fix the voice activation...
Oki ill try it

Yes. I can confirmed this working from my side too. As long as Deezer running at the background/minimize after play any song for 1sec. You can "Hi Bixby" anywhere even the screen off.

Edit: using Spotify too working. Same method like Deezer.

Hi everyone, just wanted to post this because I know most of the people who are using S8 ported custom roms on their S7/S7 Edge will get the problem in using Bixby voice after global release as it shows update system to use Bixby voice and there shows no update.

I have found the fix and successfully worked Bixby voice on my phone.

BIXBY FULLSCREEN FIX :
https://forum.xda-developers.com/s7...y-voice-fullscreen-fix-flashable-zip-t3664324

So what you guys need to do is :

1. Download Bootloader and modem from the DOWNLOAD SECTION IN THIS THREAD uploaded by tkkg1994. YOU MIGHT NEED TO LOGIN TO SEE THE DOWNLOADS SECTION AS MENTIONED BY SEVERAL USERS.

2. Download Odin Latest version from here :

https://odindownload.com/download/#.WaPCfyig_IU

3. Make sure you have installed odin drivers for samsung so that it can detect your S7 edge.

4. Open odin as administrator and attach the bootloader and modem file to BL and CP.

5. Boot the phone to download mode by volume down + power button.

6. Flash! It will take several minutes to boot up if you have done it correctly.

7. Open Bixby voice and it will show to update. This update is not the system update. It will be some bixby apps update so Click update and then it will download some apks update automatically and then it will work normally.

ENJOY!

Hi guys
I have tried to activate Bixby several ways including installing updated apps, changing and flashing CSC to XAA, changing my Samsung account on several Roms, but was unsuccessful.
It's goes to bixby home but instead of having bixby icon and reminder I have another sign that when I am pressing it goes to meet bixby web page. Could you please let me know which rom should I use and how activate my bixby.
Many thanks in advance.
My device is Samsung edge S7 sm-g935/w8

    Hello dear @noppy22

    Could you please move this topic into the right place maybe into this forum (apps, themes, mods) or whatever looks the best for you. Also this thread here and the bixby full screen thread can easily be integrated into one. I suggest the OP/moderator to close one and combine it. :good:

    Thank you very much for your assistant as always, have a nice day! :fingers-crossed:

    Ironic how S8/N8 users are banging their heads on how to remap the bixby button and disable it all together, while S7/S7e users are banging their heads on how to simulate a bixby button to get bixby working!
