Android Central Question
the single tap mode which i used to answer and hang up calls disappeared after the update cant find it anywhere i cant imagine that samsung removed such feature that even Apple still have, i am so mad..
You need to keep Assistant Menu active or it won't work. After going back to your Home Screen you'll notice the Assistant menu (shown in Pic 3 ) Tap and Hold and you'll see the X to hide it. Drag it there, then pull down your notification bar and slightly swipe the assistant notification to either side so that you can enter the settings (shown in Pic 4 ).
Lastly set the notification style to what is shown in Pic 5 .
I really hopes this clears it up for everyone
With "Assistant Menu OFF" it appears to work only for Alarms and Notifications except calls, go figure ...
Thanks @BonnieC1977 for the extra steps and actually testing the calls too for the notification panel, you can also turn off all notifications from Accessibility side by going to Settings > Accessibility > top right corner 3 dots and click on "Hide status notification".

I finally found out how to hide floating icon as well as notification by searching the solution at androidcentral.
After turning on the Assist mode and Single tap mode as many of you described, you need to go back to Settings and Apps > tap 3 dots > tap Show system apps > tap Accessibilty > scroll down to Advanced and tap Appear on top > Turn off Allow permission > finally tap Force stop.
This solution worked for my Galaxy Note 8.
One thing you need to remember is that the floating icon reappears after Restart the phone, while it does not reappear otherwise. After Restart, simply go back to Accessibility app settings and tap Force stop.
