You can disable Bixby Voice with just a few taps!

Bixby Voice lets you ask questions to your Galaxy S8 and receive answers vocally. While this is handy for some people, not everybody wants to have Bixby answering questions for them.

Turning Bixby Off — or back on — only takes a few moments, and we've got the details for you here!
