    So yesterday an app called Google Assistant popped up on my screen and when I tried to uninstall it wouldn't let me. Then I went to the google play store and found that same app I see on my screen so I installed it. I then had two google assistant apps with the same logo and everything except one of them was real and I could delete it the while the other is a fake or malware And I cant get rid of it. I tried anti virus apps but it won't go away. What's going on? It's an LG pad x 8.0.

    Could well be a fake app but unusual to be a google assistant one. Just to be sure you can download eset antivirus off the playstore and do a scan of your phone.

    Register and upload a screenshot of each assistant. One is definitely fake, and should be in the Google play store.

    I noticed this too after I did an Android system update. I had manually installed Google Assistant a while back, and that's the one I was probably able to delete just now. The other undeletable one says it's from Google on the detailed app info, and makes sense that they may have rolled it out in the latest update to their suite of other undeletable Google apps....
