In the App Store for Android devices, better known as the Play Store, we can download all the apps you want. There are free and paid apps, productivity apps, music players, themes, keyboards, games, etc. It's great to be able to choose the apps we want, but what about the preloaded apps? When you buy a new Android smartphone or tablet, you will notice that many apps are already installed. Some of them can be useful and interesting, but there are also applications that you will never use. Many people keep asking how to remove bloated apps on Android.

How to remove bloat apps on Android
As we mentioned, you can't delete these apps, but you can disable them, which is a fairly simple thing to do. However, there are many preinstalled system apps that are critical to your device. Therefore, you should not deactivate them. Usually there is no Disable option for them, or there is an Android logo right next to them.
Here's what you need to do to disable the app:
- Navigate to settings
- Then tap on Applications (or Application Manager, Manage Applications, Application Manager, Applications – depending on the Android device you have).
- Tap the All tab and you'll see all the apps installed on your device
- Find the app you want to deactivate, tap it, and then tap Deactivate.
The application is now essentially frozen and will not run in the background.
