Re: Android 6.0 small apps launch bar issue?

I'm posting again to try to clarify the temporary solution, since I originally thought it didn't apply to me.

The option you want to disable is not necessarily called "accessibility service".

For me, it was simply "smart launcher". I turned it off and this fixed the issue for me.

For anyone else, it would be located on the same screen, in the same place where "accessibility service" would be, but it could be called anything based on the apps you have installed.

Re: Android 6.0 small apps launch bar issue?

I've got the exact same problem on the Xperia Z5 Premium. Small apps work rarely, if ever, and and even the bar doesn't activate properly. I came across this thread looking for a way to disable them having un-installed the small apps browser!

Re: Android 6.0 small apps launch bar issue?

I have the same issue.
In my case it's due to a conflict with Lastpass enabled in the "accessibility service" settings menu.
If I disable it the small apps work fine.

Here's another one with this problem. I particularly don't want to disable accessibility services because my paid RoboForm app works through it. Thanks for the heads up about the upcoming software update.

Z5 Premium Small Apps issue

After being Galaxy S2,S4 and then S6 I decided to try the Sony Xperia Z5 Prem. So please forgive me if I'm being dumb on this issue.

 

I have 2 questions - 

 

1)

When pressing the home button, I get the current open/running apps and also the small apps banner at the foot of the screen. When I press the up arrow, furthest left, to open the smart apps window, nothing happens.

What should happen I press this button?

 

2)

When I press the home button and I get the smart apps banner at the foot of the page, I do see some icons there by default. A calculator and a browser icon and a few others. However since these sit behind the function keys of "back arrow, up arrow & home button". However when I press, say the calculator icon it activates one of the function keys instead. Am I missing something here? How do you access/activate any of the apps on the small apps banner without activating the function keys?
