Step 1: Unlock Your Android Device

Before we get started, make sure your Android device is unlocked and ready for customization.

Step 2: Open the Widgets Menu

To add the Google search bar to your home screen, you need to access the widgets menu. To do this:

Step 3: Find the Google Search Bar Widget

In the widgets menu, you will see a variety of options available for customization. Scroll through the list until you find the “Google” section.


If you don’t see a “Google” section, it’s likely because your device has a custom interface that doesn’t include this widget by default. However, you can still install the Google app from the Play Store and follow these steps to add its search bar widget to your home screen.

Step 4: Add the Google Search Bar Widget

In the “Google” section of the widgets menu, locate and long press on the “Search” widget. While still holding down, drag it towards your home screen and release it in your desired location.


Depending on your device and interface, you may be able to resize the widget by dragging its corners or edges. Experiment with different sizes to find the one that suits your preferences.

Step 5: Customize the Google Search Bar

Now that you have added the Google search bar to your home screen, you can further customize it to enhance your search experience.

  • Tap on the search bar to start a new search.
  • Type in your query using the on-screen keyboard.
  • Tap on the Google logo on the left side of the search bar to access additional options, such as voice search or settings.

Step 6: Removing the Google Search Bar Widget

If at any point you want to remove the Google search bar from your home screen, follow these steps:

  • Long press on the search bar widget.
  • A popup menu will appear with options related to customization.
  • Select “Remove”, “Delete”, or a similar option depending on your device’s interface.
