Here’s how to map Google Assistant with the Bixby button

We already talked about Samsung rolling out the feature which enabled us to disable/remap the Bixby button for good. The feature was initially rolled out to the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup of smartphones and was subsequently pushed to the older devices, but it appears that Samsung still does not want us to make use of any other virtual assistant found on the market.

In case you want to map the Bixby button on your Samsung smartphone to other virtual assistants (Amazon Alexa, Cortana, and Google Assistant), the amazing guys at XDA Developers have got you covered.

As it turns out, the developers have extracted a script from an app named Tasker and that can be side-loaded as an APK. Post the installation, all you need to do is to select it as the Bixby single-press action. This will prompt a voice command and in the “Complete action using” screen, choose the Google Assistant or Cortana if you wish.

The app is dubbed Bixby Button Assistant Remapper (the download link is at the end of the post).
