Google Search is one of the most popular widgets on Android smartphones and tablets. It was most likely already added on your device’s home screen. Did you know that you can customize its look? It’s easy and fun to do!
Google’s search tool’s customization options first started appearing in 2017 before it was unofficially linked. But hints of its comeback surfaced earlier this month, and based on several reports and our own experiences over the past few days, it’s back again.
The new setting can be accessed not through the launcher settings, as you might expect, but using the Google app. As far as I can tell, even phones I’m using with older versions of the Google app have the new feature, that means you won’t need any specific new update to get the customization options, as long as you’re running a recent version of the app.
If you are using the default system launcher on your Android device, there is no option to customize the Google gadget. All you get is the option to resize the tool and that’s it. Anyway, Google recently brought you the features with which you can change the style, degree of transparency and color of the Google search tool. Here’s the before and after customization view in the image below and how you can do it.
