How do i get the google bar at the bottom of my homescreen?

2019-05-18, 20:49 PM

I recently switched to an older x4 phone I had because I moved to a different country. My newer x4 has a google bar at the bottom of the homescreen but not my older one that I just dugged out. They are both at the most current updates of Android 9. How do I add it? I miss the more complex voice search, "who sings this song," etc  

Solved! See the solution

Touch and hold on your home screen until the Widgets options show up.    Scroll through the Widgets and select Google.    Locate the Google Search bar, touch and hold to drag it to you home screen and then adjust the width you your preference.

I appreciate the response. Would you know how to put it at the bottom of the screen? I added it but it's like second from the bottom of the screen and it won't let me put it at the bottom.

You may have to move some other home screen items around to move it to the bottom, or shrink its size by pressing and holding on the Google Search bar  momentarily to highlight it, and then position it where you want, or drag the left or right pick points to make it larger or smaller.    The size of the Google Search Bar does not affect its functionality.  

 

Cheers,
