It turns out that this feature, Active Edge, can be configured to activate any function you'd like. 

The process, which was pieced together by an ambitious XDA forum developer, is incredibly complicated. It doesn't technically change the function of Active Edge; it just makes your phone do something else when it senses that Google Assistant is about to pop up. 

Here's how to do it: You'll need your computer, a USB connector, and a good chunk of time. 

1. Download the application Button Mapper from Google Play, and open it.
