Looks like a 3rd party chat/messenger app. Just long press it and click either X red to uninstall or pull it to the top to remove it from home screen.

@fatbloke666

It seems that you accidentally activated an Accessibility option, I think it's "Select to Speak". Find it in Settings -> Accessibility and turn it off.
