@Hafarilqbor 

The home button will show Google Assistant only when you long-press on it. It has other functions you can read about here:

https://support.sonymobile.com/global-en/xperia1/userguide/navigating-applications/

 

If you want to change the behaviour of the home button totally, you might need to install a 3rd party launcher from Google Play store (like Nova Launcher, for example).
