    Hi

    How many of you think that having the option to customize the Google search bar on OnePlus launcher could be good idea?

    I would like to have the option to have it with rounded corners.

    Well, on the OnePlus launcher, the search bar is actually a widget made by Google, so it's actually up to Google to offer the option to change it.

    Edit: Also, check out Nova Launcher if you want more customization options. I don't use it, but I know that plenty of people are happy with it.

    I think that the google search bar is absolutely useless! Most browsers you can type in a question and it will search using Google! Search bar is redundant and every phone I have it is the first thing removed.

    thanks for the reply

    Yes I Know that I can use nova, however I feel the OnePlus launcher more smoother.

    I notice that other brands like Huawei and Samsung are using a rounded Google bar by default on their launchers.

    Yes you can do that, but I guess the Google bar is a quicker shortcut to do that. Moreover you can search for your own apps on it as well (not only web results)

    I use nova launcher as OnePlus launcher has very less customisation options.

    you can go and download lawn chair launcher which provides n number of options i think you might be happy with that one
    As far as i came to know that rounded corner widget is only available in few of the devices only because its server side update and google stopped that because they got enough people for testing it out this was the answer that is given to me

    But IMAO i don't think that this feature is still under testing its been like two years i think ,go and ask why Google why in Twitter and see what they say or answer

    But i think OnePlus can implement this because a year or six months back Nokia asked on Twitter in the form of poll whether to have rectangular shaped widget or rounded one as everyone voted that they need (obviously) rounded one hence it implemented that ,OnePlus also has a hand in that is upto it whether to implement or to not to implement

    is it really? i have the updated google app but still I do not see that search bar in the widget. It would be really helpful if you would let us know the app version of google and how to get it?
