    Question possible to remove the google search bar on the home screen without rooting?

    i remember seeing something like that on this forum before. it was a nice, clean looking home screen and it didn't have the google search bar on the top.

    is this possible? if so, does it require rooting?

    Yeah, you have to use a different launcher, like nova launcher

    No you don't need root

    Why would you want to remove it, I think it look nice up there, and would help to make quick searches

    Yes, but it's nice to have the option to remove it. You can always search by bringing up Google Now. And some phones still have a hardware search button, which makes the search bar a little redundant.

    It is a peculiar software design choice. All of the non Nexus Android devices allow you to remove the Google search bar from the home screen. I never had an issue with it. But I do wonder why they insist that it cannot be removed.

    I use this:



    Very light for a replacement launcher, which is what I was looking for, and allows you to hide the search bar.
