Here's a video of what I'm trying to do: https://youtu.be/Gyd_cvg9R8E
At 2:10 he hides the icon which has never been a problem for me until I recently updated my phone. I'm just wondering if there's a work around or am I just stuck with this icon on my phone screen. I really hate having to swipe to turn off an alarm or phone call and this setting has been changed so that I'm forced to turn on assistant menu if I want to use that feature.
Thank you @Cruz77 ...
As of a couple of days ago, after the system update I too can no longer hide the Assistant Menu floating icon...very frustrating. I don't want an edge icon either. I don't like the edge icon/access, it gets in the way.
Hiding the Assistant icon puts, or should I say used to put it in the Quick Access menu. All I had to do is pull down the notifications/Quick access and select it.
I had an LG phone for quite a while, it's functions were simple. I upgraded to a Samsung Note 10 recently so I could make use of the Android 10 features. I used the Assistant mostly to allow me to turn off my screen with out having to always use the button. On the LG I only had to double tap the screen to turn it off. I thought the Assistant function was great...until they messed up hiding the icon.
I don't want more adds on my phone, so please don't tell me about downloading and installing other apps to do this. I paid a lot of money for this phone and don't need to pay for additional apps.
This is the dumbest thing Samsung has done to date with this operating system. <edit> I bought YOUR phone because you were supposed to be better than the iVirus and now you pull something so bad it could only be imagined on a flip-phone or one of those bricks.
Sorry mate, but at the moment the best you can do is shove it down onto the edge where it still shows up and its still impossible to get rid of and its still annoying <edit>.
As for me, this is Androids "Last Straw" i ordered my iVirus this morning. Bye Samsung, good luck folks!
Same thing happened to me. I'm using Note 10. I'm guessing it's because of the update. I want to be able to hide the assistant menu when I'm playing games, and unhide it once I'm done. 😞 hope they bring it back on the next patch of updates.
