I'm using CPL (customised Pixel Launcher) on my Oneplus 6T and love having Google just one swipe to the left on my home screen but far out it keeps spoiling big things for me. I know I should pretty much stay off the internet all of Monday to avoid Game of Thrones spoilers but whenever I'm just sitting at my desk staring at my phone I end up swiping to the left out of habit and yesterday Google decided to put a giant spoiler complete with image on my homescreen =( 




Has this happened to anyone else or am I alone in this? Wish there was something I could do to stop it that doesn't involve taking the page away.

Another interesting thing it loves to do is fill my feed with Married at First Sight stories... I've never once googled or shown any kind of interest or even watched any episode of MAFS... I kept hitting don't show me these, or less like this but no effect. Then it started giving them to me in push notification form! 


I think I could use




Or these?
