Just yesterday, I started getting these weird little bugs crawling around my screen and notifications about Spotlight Player. They are very irritating!

I have tried to Uninstaller Spotlight, but it keeps coming back. I see that it's a widget.

Can someone explain to me why it all of a sudden appeared and how I can get rid of it forever?!?!?

Many thanks.

I had uninstalled it twice previously and it is gone now, but had come back before. Plus, it is also a widget.

It also says it's installed on the Google Play store, but there was no way to Uninstaller it.

If you simply open it and go into Spotlight Player it will stop prompting you.

Disable it or delete if you have root. If you uninstalled it and it came back you just uninstalled the updates and it could've updated if you have apps set for automatic updates..

Disable through Settings > Apps as it sounds like you are probably stock..

If by "coolest thing on the phone" you mean "most annoying thing that I have no use for on the phone," then I agree with you. If it's so great, then people will download it all by themselves, and won't need an undeletable version of it preloaded.

Clearly you haven't seen "Duet" yet. Spotlight player is awesome.
