Samsung really is going to get some heat in the tech community for a decision they made about the galaxy S8. The company decided to not allow users to change the function of the Bixby button. Bixby is Samsung’s new digital assistant similar to IOS’s Siri. The fact that Bixby has it’s own dedicated buttons shows that they really want to push Bixby and really hope that it catches on.
With users not being able to change the function the button it may make the feature useless and could make the button a useless addition. Hopefully Samsung releases an update after the launch so that people can change the function of the button if they don’t like Bixby.
