You're probably well aware that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus ship with a dedicated button that toggles Bixby. What you may not know, however, is that the key can be reconfigured to launch a different application, like Google Assistant. Pretty neat, huh?
Remapping the button is pretty straightforward. As outlined by the folks over at XDA, it's as simple as downloading an application called All In One Gestures, changing some of your handset's accessibility settings, then creating a custom key within the app.

There's a good chance Samsung won't be too happy about people reconfiguring the Bixby button (it may even find a way to patch it), but if that's what consumers want, it probably should have given them the ability to do so from the word go.
For those in need of a refresher, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus sport a 5.8- and 6.2-inch Infinity Display, respectively, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable internal storage and a 12MP rear-facing camera.
