On Galaxy S10, Samsung made it hard to disable Bixby Home and other Bixby features. But you can hide the Bixby Home and remap the Bixby key so that the Bixby is less visible on Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+, and S10 5G.
This Galaxy S10 how-to guide explains what Bixby Home is, why some Galaxy S10 owners want to hide it, and how to hide Bixby Home from Galaxy S10 Home screen.
What is the Bixby Home?
Bixby Home is a component of Bixby, Samsung’s voice assistant.
By default, Bixby Home shows some relevant info (e.g., schedule, news, and weather) for you. You can manage and customize the various cards in the Bixby Home.
On Galaxy S10 (S10, S10+, S10e, and S10 5G), a dedicated panel (the leftmost panel) in Galaxy S1o home screen is assigned for Bixby Home.
Although some owners may find the Bixby Home is useful, Google Now (Google Assistant) page usually is better (arguably) and gives more relevant info.
Besides, many owners do not like the idea of a dedicated Bixby Home or (Google page) on Galaxy S10.
Therefore, some Galaxy S10 owners want to hide Bixby Home from Galaxy S10 Home screen.
How to hide Bixby home from Galaxy S10 Home Screen?
As shown in the screenshot below, the two lines on the leftmost of the home screen panel indicator tell you that the Bixby Home is currently shown on Galaxy S10 Home screen.
After you hide Bixby home from Galaxy S10 Home Screen, then the indicator should disappear.
On Galaxy S10 Home screen, you can use the pinch gesture as shown below to enter the edit mode of Galaxy S10 home screen.
You can also access the edit mode by tap and hold (long tap) any blank area on the Galaxy S10 home screen.
In the Galaxy S10 home screen edit mode, as shown above, you can tap the two-line indicator to navigate to the leftmost panel.
You can also just swipe right to navigate to the same panel.
Please note, the 2-line indicator will always be shown in the edit mode even after you hide the Bixby Home from Galaxy S10 Home screen.
This is not a bug. It allows you to unhide the Bixby Home in the future if you change your mind.
Once in the leftmost panel, you can find the switch for Bixby Home as shown below.
You can tap the switch to turn it off (if it is currently on) or turn it on (if it is currently off).
For example, as shown above, the Bixby Home is now hidden on Galaxy S10 Home screen. In other words, you will get the normal Home screen panels in the leftmost position.
Please note, Bixby Home settings are inside the app itself and Samsung did not add them in Galaxy S10 Settings.
How to disable Bixby Home on Galaxy S10?
It is almost impossible to disable Bixby Home (and other Bixby features) because Samsung integrated Bixby deeply into the software.
If you do not like Bixby, or do not want to use Bixby, you can just reject the agreement when it asks you to accept.
In addition to hiding Bixby Home on the Home screen, you can also remap the Bixby button so that Bixby will not be easily triggered.
Anyway, there are no easy ways to disable Bixby Home or other Bixby features once you enable them.
