This is not a solution! I don't want this forced on me and automatically used on email links. This will be my last Samsung product. The disable button is grayed out! I hate everything about my S9+. Never again.
Uninstall it DIRECTLY from the Google Play Store. You can do this with other bloatware as well!
Be sure to un-check 'auto-update' first. (Click on the 3 vertical dots in the upper right corner.)
It (and other bloatware) may re-install upon powering off/on, but just repeat the process.
The icons may remain in apps, but you will see that there is far less space taken up!
