The most recent security update for T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S8 device will block users from using Bixby remapping apps, Android Police report. It looked just like buttons could be customized Bixby shortcuts are somewhat separate. However, the device is finally shipping without that ability. This means that users have to resort to third party software to incorporate that functionality, and it now seems like Samsung insisted making sure remains specialized in Bixby Bixby.
Update June, that T-Mobile describes as ‘ an escalation in Bixby, “affects the S8 or S8 plus models other carriers seem to have still the ability to utilize the application to Bixby keys (although not for a long time.)
