    Didn't download it didn't ask for it and can't delete it.
    Why? How do I get rid of it?
    I hate everything emoji. I'm 56 not 16.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    The same way Facebook, Spotify, LinkedIn and Fortnite got on there. Samsung's greed.

    Presumably they added it in the most recent update... It's bad enough it can't be uninstalled, but it can't be disabled either, so I think the only way to rid yourself of it is to root. Or buy a phone from someone else.

    I seem to be moving more and more in that direction every day.

    I just found it in the Galaxy store sitting there so it's not really part of the patch.

    What makes you think that? What i was proposing is that they included it as a system app in the patch.

    They've definitely included it as a system app at some point, because it's a system app.

    Ah, I understand. U thought you meant it was just in there as an app in general.

    Well, consider this your warning then lol, if you download it, it'll be on your phone permanently.

    Except this is not a pre-installed 3rd party app. This is an additional feature for AR stickers obviously to compete with iPhones.

    Just like all the other phone features you'll never use, you don't HAVE to use it, and no stickers will be created for you if you don't make them.

    Which would'nt be fine if we could disable it.

    Can't be disabled because it's part of the already-included AR software included, in turn, in the camera. They just created a separate 'locker' for creating/managing these outside of the camera app.

    I actually found out how to just hide any UNWANTED APPS that can't be deleted.

    Some can be disabled some can't. Those that can't can be put to Sleep and they won't run in the background.

    I don't have it on my phone. Must be only a certain carrier forcing it to be installed.

    I have two S10+, one is running the T-Mobile firmware, the other the unlocked firmware, both on the May update. Both are AT&T unlocked on T-Mobile.

    I have an unlocked s10+ on T-Mobile. The AR Emoji is not in the App Drawer, it's in the camera app. It's the same on my s9+.

    It's an update....it's 2.0 and part of the existing AR features in the camera except now accessable outside the camera. I'm not concerned. I'll probably use them on occasion

    You might not have gotten it yet. It's not a carrier feature but it may need carrier approval before it gets installed
