    I used to simply tap to answer phone but after an update last week I have to swipe and I hate it.

    You can always install a different dialer app from the play store

    Apparently they removed this option in the last Update.

    Yes you are correct, but you always have the option to install a different dialer

    Not for me, I still have no option for Single Tap after I press Assistant Menu.

    I lost my Single Tap when I got this update a week ago

    My phone is answering calls with single tap now, I guess they realized it was terrible to swipe and changed it back.

    I couldn't get rid of the floating icon, but then realized it needs to be held down for a second or so. Good fix. Now I just have to get rid of that accessibility notification in the drop down menu!

    I don't have that in my drop down and I am not sure how I got rid of it. I think you go back into the accessibility settings again and tap Interaction and Dexterity>Assistant Menu>Assistant Plus and make sure it is OFF.
    Sorry, I was wrong. Here are the instructions for getting rid of that. I knew I'd seen it somewhere.
    Settings, accessibility, 3 dots, hide status notification.

    Anyone find a good dialer app to address this issue? The floating icon comes back every time I start the phone and it drives me nuts.

    I only restart my phone once a week or so and it is easy to get rid of the floating icon when it comes back. Just long press then drag it to the top and buh bye. Does yours not work that way?

    Yes, that's how it works. I shut down my phone every night, though.
