Permanently Remove Factory Installed Application
Article ID: 15932802
Issue / Question
How to remove applications that are part of the base image?
e.g. google books, google hangouts, games etc.
The goal could be to prevent end users (of the device) running the applications or free up memory space.
Resolution / Answer
These applications are part of the GMS build and cannot be removed.
An option is to replace the GMS variant on the device with the AOSP build instead.
