It is superfluous to utilize features that merely restrain your imagination effectively. In recent years, various smartphone brands have aimed to create a new technological realm, but some apps still need to evolve.

The primary interface, placed at the top of the screen, hinders user accessibility, and Google is experimenting with an unconventional approach by flipping the search bar upside down. Moreover, a new search bar has been observed at the top of the bottom navigation bar, including home, search, and saved options.

This feature is currently in development and not enabled by default, as reported by AssembleDebug. When activated through hidden flags, the search bar’s new location is accessible on both Google’s home page and the search interface.

While the search bar has been relocated to the bottom, other options remain at the top, such as search filters, different sections, and account settings. AssembleDebug reports that the bottom search bar was initiated in version of the Google app, the latest release.

Android experts speculate that this new design is likely undergoing testing with a select group of beta testers. The discovery may not roll out to users soon, as Google could potentially deem the experiment a failure and shelve it indefinitely.

It’s worth noting that you can already avoid stretching your thumb to the top of the screen in Google Search. Picture yourself in the search tab, and if you’d rather spare your thumb from expanding like after watching an incredible movie, tap the search button at the bottom once more to bring up the keyboard and enter a new term in the search bar. This convenient trick is readily available in several apps.
