Developers find workaround to allow Samsung Galaxy S8 users to remap Bixby button (again)
However, the South Korean company pushed software updates that prevent the remapping of the Bixby button. It happened last week in the United States where Sprint and T-Mobile released updates that included new security patch updates and minor fixes.
What Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners didn't know is that these updates also blocked the option to remap the Bixby button. The good news is developers have already found a way to avoid Samsung's restrictions and enabled the option to customize how the Bixby button works once again.
It will be interesting to see whether or not Samsung will continue to deploy updates that would limit the use of the Bixby button, seeing that developers find new workarounds every time that happens.
