Now that many of you got your Galaxy S8 in your hands, many of you probably aren’t feeling the Bixby as a service as it isn’t quite finished yet or the dedicated Bixby button.  There has been a lot of back-and-forth of Samsung allowing folks to remap the button and not.  They ended off w/ a no-go.  

Low-and-behold, developer Dave Bennett created a free utility called BixRemap to fix just that.  This free app allows you to replace it w/ Google Now.  The app was put together in like 20 mins so it isn’t perfect.  It will still open Bixby then after a second goes to the Google Now instead. 

Now a dedicated Google Now button won’t be ideal for some but at least it can actually be useful.  Hit the link below to grab the app and get started.
