    I accidentally pinned YouTube, and can't get out of the app. Restarting phone doesn't work either. I tried swiping up from the bottom and hold but nothing happens. I wonder because I use Nova Launcher and have the gesture for Google Voice for Home Button? I'm now typing this from my old Note5 phone. Please help. Thanks.

    You're awesome, thanks for trying. As mentioned in my original post, I did swipe up, but nothing happens, only got a vibration. In Nova Launcher, did you choose Google Voice or Google Search for your home button gesture? Maybe that is the culprit? I can't even go to setting in Nova Lance. I'm very worried.

    Can you do a test for Google Voice or Google Search for the home button gesture?
