    (I use android-v20 if it helps) So yesterday i noticed i suddenly got a magnifying glass icon in gray circle floating on my screen and i cannot remove this. i can drag it around but theres no trash can to remove this. When i press it, it just switches to a screen with search bar on top and ads below.
    Idk if its a real app bc when i press the on-app menu button(with that search screen on) to see which app it is, it doesnt show any app.
    I have no idea where it came from. One thing i did before it appeared is that i downloaded like 5 browser apps at once. So i re-downloaded all of them but couldn't find any clues.
    I did everything i could(restart the phone,system updates,etc) but that search icon is still there and im having so much problem bc of this. Does anyone have an idea of what it is and possibly help me??

    Sounding like some search assistance type of thing. Poke around in settings.. Apps... Show system apps... You may recognise the app icon there and disable the annoying thing...

    Do you have an appointment called photo editor? If so Uninstal it. Problem solved for me!

    It's definitely a photo editor app, I've just uninstalled & the annoying floating magnifying glass has now gone. Thanks you Occ2663
