Disable Bixby on the Samsung Galaxy S22

Remove Bixby from the Power Button

Technically, the power button on the Galaxy S22 is called the “Side Key.” That’s because holding it doesn’t open the power menu by default anymore. It wakes up Bixby instead.

Tap the settings gear.

Next, select “Advanced Features” from the Settings.

Go to "Advanced Features."

Find “Side Key” and select it.

Select "Side Key."

Lastly, switch the action for “Press and Hold” to “Power Off Menu.”

Choose "Power Off Menu."

Now, when you press and hold the button it won’t launch Bixby anymore! You’ll see the regular power menu with the option to Power Off and Restart.

Turn Off the Bixby Wake-Up Command

Bu default, you can use Bixby by simply saying “Hi, Bixby” from anywhere. If you don’t want to use Bixby, this listening for the command in the background is just eating up the battery. So let’s turn that off too.

First, open “Bixby” from the app drawer and tap the compass icon from the floating Bixby bar.

Next, tap the three-dot menu icon in the top right and select “Settings.”

Open the menu and select "Settings."

Now simply toggle off the switch for “Voice Wake-Up.”

Toggle off "Voice Wake Up."

That’s all there is to it
