    Default Nexus 5: Can't clear Google Search Bar History

    Hi, hoping someone can help.

    When I tap the google search bar on my nexus 5 homescreen I get a large white drop down with all my recent searches. Is there a way to clear this history? I have already logged into google.com/history and cleared all history on that site, but it still shows on that drop down.

    The ONLY way I am able to get rid of them is by manually holding down EACH result and tapping "remove from search history".
    Is there a clear all option somewhere?

    Pls help.

    I think you can do it by logging into your Google account on a browser. Go to history.google.com, click the gear icon at the upper right and then Settings, then click on "delete all" past Google search activity.

    Thank you for your response.

    WHOOPS. Sorry about that. Not sure how I missed it!

    Ok, try this. Go to Settings>Apps>All, select Google Search, and Clear Cache and Data.
