    This is the questioner again. The icon seems to be Messenger video chat, on a brand new S8 plus. How do I get rid of this messenger icon-screenshot_20171122-194341.jpg

    Long press on it and you should see a X in top centre of screen. Drag it to that and it should remove it from home screen.

    No, I tried that, but it is not the same as the rest of the icons It can be placed anywhere on the screen, and doesn't snap into a grid position. Double clicking will make it a tiny dot on the top left of the screen, but it won't go away totally.

    Settings/General/App manager. Find it in there and Force Stop it.

    Look around in message app for settings on this one.

    If it's not from messenger then try this:
    settings>accessibility, play around with the settings there, and it might be one of them. let us know

    It was in apps as a stand alone app, which allowed me to uninstall it. Didn't think of that first, as i assumed it was part of facebook messenger, which I use. Thanks.
