Ok, So when the Instant Widget pops up, press the left button which will show (cascade) all the running apps, on each of the apps on the left corner you see the Icon of each app that is running, once you see that go to Google Play or Samsung app store and Uninstall that particular app that this Instant Widget has attached itself to.

What am I supposed to do if it's an app that I want to keep? I have Go SMS Pro as my texting app, and I haven't found one I like as much. This widget has attached itself to that app. I have deleted it and redownloaded twice and it instantly pops up every time. I know it's not a part of the app, there's no mention of it anywhere. I want to keep the app but this widget is ridiculous!

It seems that GO SMS app might be the common problem here.

 

I have always used it as my messaging app and noticed this Instant widget just a few days ago. I factory reset my phone, but redownloaded all my needed apps again, which included GO SMS. Instant widget was still there. Decided to delete just GO SMS. Problem is gone as of now (though its only been about 30 mins). Ill update with any further info.

 

Also FYI, the Instant widget was appearing on multiple apps I used including my home screen Twitter, FB, IG, etc. But once GO SMS was deleted, it was gone from all.

 

Im currently only using the default messaging app that came with my S8+
