Removing the Google Search Bar on the Google Pixel 7 can be achieved by using a custom launcher app. The default Pixel Launcher does not allow for this customization. Here are the steps to remove the search bar using a custom launcher:
- Install a custom launcher: Download and install a custom launcher app from the Google Play Store. Some popular options include Nova Launcher, Apex Launcher, and Action Launcher.
- Set the custom launcher as default: Once you have installed the custom launcher, open the Settings app on your Pixel 7. Scroll down and tap on “Apps”. Tap the settings gear icon at the top-right corner, then tap on the “Home app” option. Choose the custom launcher you installed as your default launcher.
- Remove the search bar: With the custom launcher set as your default, you can now remove the Google Search Bar. The process may vary depending on the launcher you are using. For example, in Nova Launcher, go to “Nova Settings” > “Home Screen” > “Search” and select “None” as the drop-down option. This will remove the search bar from the home screen.
Keep in mind that using a custom launcher may change the overall look and feel of your home screen and may not have all the features of the Pixel Launcher. However, custom launchers often offer more customization options, which can be a plus for some users.
