    Hi there, I am taking some bloatwares out with ADB in my Galaxy A50 (no root). I would like to know if it is safe to remove the whole Bixby stuff. Thanks a lot!

    Firstly I very much doubt you would be able to remove Bixby as it is coded into Samsungs phone, especially without root. I believe unless you are a very experienced rooter you would end up "bricking" your phone as Bixby is a core component in the OS. (By this I mean the phone will no longer function)

    You would be better simply turning Bixby off or not buying Samsung.

    The question is, is there an app which Samsung allow you to disable which has the effect of disabling Bixby? (I can, and have, done this with Assistant on my Pixel but don't know Samsung software).

    Removing the system app won't gain you any space as it lives in a different partition (which is why root would be needed), so disabling as as good for practical purposes.

    Well yes and no. :p

    The A50 looks like it has a Bixby button on the side of the phone and ironically if you wish to disable this turning Bixby on; you need to first set Bixby up and then you have the option to remap the button to something more useful.

    The second item to kill is the Bixby homepage, (far left page similar to Google) and this you can do simply by pinching the screen as to zoom out on the homepage and then swipping right and hitting the On/Off toggle. This screen will now not operate.

    By doing these 2 things Bixby pretty much wont do anything on your phone. (Hopefully) :cool:

  6. On my S9 I'm using the BxActions app which allows for disabling or reassigning the Bixby button without having to create a Samsung account. It works very well, I have the button disabled and it's like Bixby doesn't exist.

    No, the A50 does not have the side button, fortunately. Already disabled Bixby crap. Gonna wait an year to root my phone in order do not lose the guarantee. Thanks guys.
