My Motorola Ultra with Android version 4.2.2 contains Touchless Control. I have uninstalled the software both from Google Play and App Settings. However, the device still says "Update", instead of "install".

How can I successfully uninstall the Touchless Control?

Note: The reason why I would like to uninstall it would pertain to the reason for installing the most updated version.

  • Does it say "Uninstall" or "Disable"? If the latter, then it is a system app which cannot be removed (by normal means). You need to disable it if you want it gone. However, you don't need to remove it to install a newer version. Just run the update.

  • It says "Uninstall". I uninstalled it and ran the update. However, Touchless Control still possess 3.15.01 version.

  • Then I am unclear exactly what it is you're trying to do or what the problem is.

  • I changed my current build, and it seems to have solved the problem.

After step 1, go to step 3 and in security Device administrator you will see Touchless software, uncheck it and then uninstall option give you to uninstall.
