    In the last few weeks I've noticed my V30 occasionally has a few coloured dots that intermittently show or flash around the home button for about a second.

    Anyone else get it and know what it means? It's too fast to get a screenshot especially in this phone where screenshots seem to be a more cumbersome process than on most others!

    Thanks!

    When I click on my 'home' button, I get a different colored dot at the North, South, East, West positions around it... Then my Google Assistant (sub) window opens.

    If you press and hold, the dots go horizontal and the Google assistant pops up.

    I have that too. But I don't have Google assistant popping up because I disabled Google App.
    No need for f...ing assistant.

    Ah yes, thanks everyone. I can see them when I press it now, and when I press and hold although I also don't have it activated as it asks me if I want to turn the assistant on.

    The random 'sparkling' of the coloured dots when you're looking at other pages, apps etc. is getting highly irritating though.
