Android 12 makes the search option more detailed!
Android 12 comes with many innovations. One of them, the new detailed search option, has appeared on Google Pixel phones.
Although some Android device manufacturers add system-wide search to their devices, it is not part of the underlying operating system. It looks like the current situation is about to change with Android 12. Because although this option is not yet officially available in the market, it has arrived on Pixel phones with the beta 4 update. Still, the company continues to work on it, because it has shortcomings.
The functionality that comes with Android 12 makes your search easier
The functionality that comes with the flow Android 12 beta 4 version is currently only used in the application menu. The home screen widget still has the old option. This feature allows the keyboard to open automatically each time you open the application menu. Thus, it allows you to find what you are looking for easily and quickly.
When we watch the video, we see that the keyboard is automatically active when the menu with the applications is opened. This shows that the user does not need to open the keyboard additionally. Thus, he can easily access an application that he wants to achieve the result quickly.
Not only that, you can also determine which result will appear first when you click on a letter. For example, you can make the Calendar app appear first in search results instead of Phone.
You can search 4 sections at the same time in the whole system
System-wide search on the device; It includes shortcuts, contacts, settings, and tips. Of course, if there is a category in the results that you don’t want, you are free to turn it off. It looks like Google is planning to add more categories when we review it.
There is a way to enable this system-wide search. However, it is only used on Rooted Pixel phones. For this you need to have the developer’s Magisk module named kdrag0n. Only people who have supported the developer on Patreon can access it.
