How to Remove or Retrieve the Google Search bar on Samsung

Google means well when it comes to its Assistant service and they’ve put the little microphone icon on their Search bar with the hope that you’ll use it thanks to its convenient placement. But not all of us feel the same. The truth is that the search bar takes up almost one-third of the whole home screen of your Samsung device. How to be pleased by that? There’s no way and you know it.

If it is removed however, you can have more free space to put your favorite apps or some useful widgets. So, I bet that you are wondering: how to do that?

You can always choose to install a custom ROM on your Android phone, with which you can completely control all parts on the device, not to mention the simple move of removing the Google Search bar.
