Samsung users can no longer disable Bixby button, thanks to Bixby 2.0

Samsung launched Bixby 2.0 alongside Galaxy Note 9 recently with many new features. To use the Bixby digital assistant, users can press the dedicated Bixby button on most of the Samsung smartphones. Consumers could originally disable the button, however, with the introduction of Bixby 2.0 that feature seems to have been removed.
According to a report by XDAdevelopers, Samsung Galaxy smartphone users will now no longer be able to stop Bixby from opening due to accidental button presses. This is due to the fact that Samsung has implemented a code inside Bixby 2.0, which refrains users from deactivating the service.
With Bixby 2.0 the company has focused on bettering its third-party app integrations. Now users can use the digital assistant to perform various tasks like reserving tables, booking cabs, and filling in important information based on history. Additionally, Samsung has also partnered with Google and a few other companies to integrate their services into the app. This will help users get tasks done without the need to navigate into other apps.
