    Someone please help me find the setting to turn off the annoying floating ID icon I get whenever someone sends me a text message. This icon is very similar to the ID icon that is displayed during a phone call. This icon persists on all screens--home screen, secondary launcher screens, browser, emails, etc.

    I can move this icon around each screen but it always snaps itself to the right or left edge of the screen.

    If I get more than one person sending me a text, I get more than one floating icon on my screen(s). I can remove the floating icons by tapping, holding them and moving them towards the center of the dock area at the bottom of my screen, whereupon a discard icon appears and I "sweep" the ID icon into the discard icon and it disappears.

    My text messaging app in Google Messages and my launcher is Nova Prime. I also happen to use the Google Messages desktop PC app that allows me to send/receive texts on my PC, but I doubt that is causing this problem as it happens even with my PC turned off.

    I like the Bubbles which can be moved to the very bottom center of the screen where an X will show up to dismiss those.

    Yeah I find those annoying also. In some settings they are also referred to as chat heads I think. FB Messenger started them back up on my phone the other day on its own after an app update. Took me a bit to find the setting to disable them.

    Bubbles are certainly a polarizing feature. Love them or hate them, nothing in between.

    It's nice that there is the option to disabile or enable them.
