Sprint Product Ambassadors: How to remap the Bixby button to Google on the Galaxy S10+

A friend of mine has this joke he likes to tell about having Siri start a conversation with Alexa, and that's how you get cylons.  Samsung had a virtual assistant for years called S Voice, and it was pretty good, but it was replaced by Bixby a few years ago.  People I've talked to are divided into two camps when it comes to Bixby; they either love it, or they've never used it (him?).  When Galaxy phones first came with a dedicated Bixby button, people immediately wanted to remap it to Google because that was the virtual assistant they were most familiar with.  The cool thing about the S10+ is you can have both Bixby and Google respond to your voice without touching the button, and even if the screen is off and locked.  Just say, "OK Google" or "Hi Bixby".  Just don't say "Hi Bixby" when Google assistant is open.google.jpg

To set up two assistants, open Bibxy, then click on the three dots in the top-right corner.

Finally, set Bixby to open after double clicking the key instead of the default single press (see below).  Finally, the two virtual assistants can live in peace, although I do actually have Alexa on this as well...

VERY useful.  I had a little issue finding the Bixby Key settings from within the actual Bixby app, but I was able to find it and make the change easily from the Settings options for the phone itself.  Thanks for the heads up!
