    I'm getting a new icon that randomly appears, I think it has something to do with screen mirroring, it's a screen with a wifi signal in the bottom left hand corner....I don't know where it's come from or how to get rid of it or where it is on my phone and I've looked everywhere. Can anyone help please..?

    Welcome to the forums. Do you have a Chromecast or similar device connected to your WiFi network?

    Looks like it might be the screen mirroring icon.

    I did some research online and found this: http://www.solvemix.com/index.php/an...rroring-solved

    I hope it will help. Someone suggested that it's now called "Smart View".

    It kind of looks like the cast icon for Google cast. Were you trying to cast a movie or music lately?

    I finally found the precise one you have with those borders. I think it's the "when connected" icon.
    Do you have a Samsung TV, or were near one. I have never cast to a TV so don't know much about it.

    On reflection (!) it's the negative of yours, but probably the same end design.

    Hi gollfdriver97i believe you could be right, I looked it up and found where to turn it off, however on switching it off the icon didn't disappear, only when I turn off the phone and restart does the icon go away.
    Also on doing some searching about, I don't have any cast things, and I also don't get any controls just the icon, it's so random I just can't figure this out at all, it's a mystery.
