Android 13 beta brings something new rounded design to Google searches

Written by admin

With the Android 13 beta 2 update currently available, beta 3 and beta 4 will be released in June and July respectively. And those two beta versions will be the first to offer platform stability. For developers, this means that from those builds there should be no changes that affect their apps.

If you’re looking for a lower-risk entry point where you’ll feel somewhat comfortable installing the Android 13 beta on your compatible Android phone, you can wait for Android 13 beta 4 in July, which is the almost final version of Android 13 will be. But if you don’t want your daily driver to struggle with reduced battery capacity or be unable to perform some of the important functions you use every day, it’s best to wait for the final version of Android 13 to be released.

Speaking of the Android 13 beta, opening version 13.20 of the Google app and tapping on the search box will bring up the usual list of past searches and autocomplete suggestions (seen after the user types in a few letters of a word they want to search for). There you’ll find a slight change in the look of the list that in beta sports has rounded corners for the suggestions at the very top of the list and at the very bottom.

The icon to the left of every previous search and recommendation (the magnifying glass) is now in a circle and according to 9to5Googlemore space is available to tap the list.
This new look for the Google search list is also expected to show up in the Pixel Launcher search on the device when the feature returns in a future build of Android 13 beta. The second build of the beta of Android 13 broke the search bar at the top of the Pixel launcher, allowing it to search only for apps instead of allowing universal search on the device for apps, contacts, web, settings, and tips.
