    I just updated my Android to Android 9 and now some of my apps have ugly white circles around them. How can I fix this?

    What device? Some devices have the option to do that while others don't. The way to do it will differ based on what device it is as well.

    You can download a launcher like Nova.

    Or we can try to see if there's already a solution on the device.

    Long-press a blank area of the home screen, you should get a pop-up menu, is one of the options Home Settings? If so, tap that. See if there's something in that list that allows you to change the icon shape.

    Additioanlly - if you go into the settings app, you should have a search box at the top, type in icon and see if that reveals a setting.

    The Moto G6 runs an un-touched version of Android very similar to the Pixel devices so some of the functions will closely mirror those devices.

    Home settings does not have an option to remove the white circles. I was hoping there was a way, my friend has a google phone and could remove hers.... I guess I am stuck with them.

    Launcher is your best bet, the pixel 2xl and 3xl don't have the option to change icon , they don't have circle behind the icon any way, but I have both the phones
