    Sorry. Don't have that solution for you, but I at least have two other possibilities.

    • Go into the settings and either disable or set them to not start automatically. Sorry, can't give a more specific procedure as it varies by Android version. Be sure to do a full backup first as it is very possible to toggle an important setting and disable some functionality that you need.
    • ** Warning! Danger Will Robinson! ** If you are a techie, consider installing an alternate OS such as LineageOS. Very good Android clone that offers much better privacy options and doesn't come with spyware/bloatware. Again, be sure you have a full backup first.

    Unfortunately this isn't possible without root (admin) access. They're installed as part of the system and are untouchable by normal means. Once you do have root access, removing them is trivial. The powers that be have done a good job convincing people that root is a bad thing and only cheaters do it. There is now a whole slew of apps that refuse to run if they can detect a rooted device. It has created a cat and mouse game of detection and hiding.

    But they do come with Google software.

    All Androids come with that. Plus you can uninstall anything not necessary to run the OS.
