Question [Q] Double System App in Play Store

This might be a stupid question, but not sure how I updated TWO Google News and Weather.

How do I remove one of them? It's a system app, so when you uninstall it doesn't give you the X to remove it from your history.

Did you download a copy and manually install it? If so, that goes to the user side of the house, the one installed in system is still there. You'd have to manually remove the one in system if you want it completely gone.

@ph37rd I didn't do anything of the sort. Two hours after posting, our Google overlords fixed it magically for me

 
Goes to show, if you leave your phone near rice, an Asian will come along and fix it for you
There are three types of people in the world:
