    Hello all, is there a way to remove the Google Search bar from my Moto X, without affecting the operation of the device.

    Thanks much.

    To use a launcher like Nova launcher. Or I think if your rooted there is a xposed module too.

    Nova is probably the best non root way to go. As far as I know you can set it to have a very similar look and feel to the stock launcher.

    A third party launcher is the only way to go. Nova is great, but most launchers can accomplish this.

    I'm using Nova launcher for mine. It is nice having that extra screen space. With Google Now and touchless controls that big Google Search bar has become rather pointless/redundant. Really more about branding and having Google as one of the first things someone sees on a phone.

    I have been using Nova for quite awhile myself. I did purchase the paid version .(Nova Prime)
    1) The main reason for me was to hide apps in the app drawer. Those apps that I rarely use .I did that just to clean up the app drawer . I didn't want to totally disable them.
    2) Remove Google search bar.
