How can I uninstall Bixby on the Samsung galaxy s9 series?

Uninstalling Bixby on the Samsung galaxy S9 follows the same procedure as when trying to perform the same function on the S8 series. Follow the instructions below, and you will be able to permanently uninstall the Bixby on your Samsung galaxy S9 device.

How to disable Bixby button

  • Press the Bixby button located on the left side of the phone, below the volume
  • Tap the three cogs in the top menu bar
  • Tap the settings button
  • Click the toggle bar

After these few steps, the Bixby button is being disabled and you can press it without having to worry about opening the Bixby home.

How to disable Bixby voice

  • Click the Bixby button, it takes you to the Bixby home. An alternative would be to swipe right on the Samsung home button till you get to the Bixby home
  • Tap the three cogs in the top menu bar
  • Tap the settings button
  • Tap the toggle bar to disable Bixby voice

How to disable Bixby home

This will permanently disable Samsung’s Bixby and its functions

  • Press and hold any empty space on the home screen until the menu appears
  • Swipe right till you reach the left home panel
  • Now, disable the Bixby home

Note that the instructions above will work fine for all Samsung galaxy S9 devices except the galaxy s9 note which is built differently. Samsung has made removal of the Bixby feature extremely difficult on the note 9 and might lead to some malfunctioning if forced. The best solution is to change the Bixby button setting. Here are the steps to follow;

  • Press the Bixby button below the volume button on the left side of your device
  • Now, tap the three-dot button on the top right corner of the menu
  • Click on the settings
  • Tap the Bixby key
  • Now change that setting to press twice to open Bixby.

You’re done! Now you can operate the volume button without the fear of activating Bixby on your first touch.

    This article is inaccurate. You can’t uninstall Bixby and you can’t disable Bixby voice, unfortunately. Even when you disable Bixby Home you still get Bixby voice when you long press the Bixby button.

    I have bought my last Samsung device, if they will not allow true uninstall of any kind of listening software.

    How to disable a function, and how to uninstall a crappy app is to different things.
    Thanks for wasting my time on something everybody could find all over the web!

      For real. I figured this much out on my own. I want to UNINSTALL Bixby. I hates it! I want it off my phone. Gone. Completely eradicated so there is no chance of it turning back on or pestering me about updates or listening to me. How do I do that?

    Does not work. Galaxy S9. I can only disable the home page.

    Uninstall by definition means to remove both set up and application data not ‘sort of in a roundabout way disabling it but not quite’ . Came here looking for an answer leaving with the same question. Badly labelled post.

    This is not uninstalling this is disabling. Wasted my time.

    Agreed. My S9 is my fourth successive Samsung phone. If they don’t make Bixby removable it will be my last

    My first and last Samsung phone, thanks to them shoving Bixby down my throat. It’s a waste of resources on my phone.

    My solution to manufacturers that want to cram unwanted products down your throat without a clean Uninstaller. New phone. It’s the only way to get the makers attention. This is not open source software people, so don’t expect to find a way to run an Uninstaller simply because you don’t like it. Most people gripe, complain, ignore.. But put up with it. The only thing that they understand is loss of marketshare. They won’t change a thing so you need to. Advertising pays them big bucks and they won’t bite the hand that feeds them.

      How? Surely not by the methods on this site or anywhere on Google. Help!

    This doesn’t work. There is no toggle to disable the bixby button. There is no way to get rid of it. Whoever wrote this is a bad person for giving me false hope.

    Samsung should be sued for forcing Bixby on consumer, any one ask me about samsung phone I tell them how crapy their Bixby apply is vs Siri . I even demonstrate their flaws to the people. Some day you will see same fate of samsung phone as amazon fire.
