You can now remap the Bixby key on the Galaxy S10+, and use Instagram Mode

The first software update for the Samsung Galaxy S10+, which will be waiting for customers to install as soon as they take their handset out of the box on March 8, introduces the option to remap the Bixby button to launch an aftermarket application or execute a Quick Command.

It also enables Instagram Mode.

Let’s talk remapping, and Instagram Mode

You can either choose to reconfigure the device to open an application on either a short or a double-press of the Bixby button, with the unassigned toggle reverting to pulling up Bixby Home. You can’t, however, alter the long-press function, which will continue to launch Bixby Voice.

The release also enables Instagram Mode, a unique tool that lets users capture and upload content to Instagram Stories from the handset’s native Camera client. The feature delivers the best Instagram experience, offering uploads in the highest supported resolution, according to Samsung’s DJ Koh.

As it stands, the number of people who are able to take advantage of the new additions is a smidgen compared to what it will be next month and that’s because the Galaxy S10+ is currently in the hands of a select few, ahead of its official release for the mass market on March 8.
