In order to get this new feature, you have to update your Bixby. (not the Smartphone update)

Once you have updated the Bixby App, the settings will include Two options

  • Single Press to open Bixby
  • Double Press to open Bixby

As you can see from the image above you can tie Bixby button for opening other apps like for eg. by double pressing you can open Spotify. or you can also remap it to any other quick command.

The important thing to note is that this update is only available to the phones which are on Android Pie.
