Latest Galaxy S8 Update On T-Mobile Blocks Bixby Remapping

Android

The latest Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ update on T-Mobile seems to be blocking Bixby remapping applications, essentially disabling any possibility to make the Bixby button do mostly whatever you want it to do. For some this won’t be an issue but for other users it could certainly pose a problem, or at the very least an annoyance if they’ve been used to using these types of apps to more or less unlock the Bixby button’s potential.

This is reportedly only an issue with T-Mobile models of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, at least for now, as there doesn’t seem to be complaints from users or developers of these types of apps in regards to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ …

Samsung Bixby missing Amazon camera detection feature on Verizon Galaxy S8

Android

Samsung Bixby is already missing features at launch, but it’s even worse for Verizon users. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are both missing the feature that allows you to identify products using the camera and immediately purchase them from Amazon.

Bixby is a big selling point for the Galaxy S8, especially since it has its own dedicated button and Samsung went as far as to disable remapping of the button. The fact that it’s missing Bixby Voice is a big problem that will likely affect adoption rates, but Verizon customers missing a feature for no good reason is even worse.

Verizon claims that it is working with Amazon to bring this feature to the Verizon carrier …
