Disable Google Assistant swipe gesture but keep Google Assistant on S21 Ultra running Android 12


I understand that with the release of android 12, we can now get rid of the annoying Google Assistant swipe up from the bottom launch gesture without disabling the assistant. I would like to continue to be able to access Google Assistant by saying "Hey Google", but I want to eliminate the launch gesture. I found info on how to do this on "Android Devices" but the menu structure in my Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is different from what's in the instructions. How to Disable the Google Assistant Swipe Gesture on Android (howtogeek.com). Any help would be appreciated.
