Direct TV icon shows up in iPad dock...why?

The Direct TV App icon with a little alarm clock has started showing up in my iPad dock.  I’m sure it is trying to tell me something, but what?  How can I make it go away?

Hey there @skunkcrossing!

I can understand wanting to find out what this icon means and how to remove it from your iPad dock. I'll be happy to share some information! Just to verify, have you updated your device system recently? After doing some research, I was able to confirm this is a new feature included in iOS 11. What this icon does is it shows recently viewed or opened apps. However, at this time there is not a way to disable it. For Apple news and updates, please click here.

I hope you find this informative. If you have any other questions or concerns, don't hesitate to let us know.
