    Does everyone else have to double tap the Bixyby button to get it to work? Mine has to be double tapped for bixby to show. won't work with just a single tap. Just wondering if this is normal or if i should warranty it. Not remapped or anything.
    i remember the day i got it (unless im misstaken) i was able to tap the button once and it would show then i got an update now it takes double tap. could have been what the update was for i guess so you didn't always accidently tap it and have it pop up all the time.
    thanks

    Yes mine works with only 1 click, in fact so easily that I am continually having to close it. Not so much now that I got a UAG Case on it.

    I remaped my Bix button to Google now. But I could only get it to work by swiping over from the home screen. Pushing the button did not work. However a double tap on the button works.

    Sweeeeeeeeet

    Mine opens with one click. Although I find it pretty useless. I really like the previous (non-bixby) version.

    Try BixBye, download it from Play Store then you can set the button for something else.
    I have mine set as a home button.

    does the app still work? I read after the last bixby update, you can no longer remap the bixby key.
