Google is adding a new search widget to Chrome on Android. The new widget is called “Quick Action Search Widget”.
We spotted this new widget in Chromium code this morning:
“Quick Action Search Widget: When enabled, the quick action search widget will be available to add to the homescreen.”
The flag is now available in the Canary channel version of Chrome. On my Pixel phone with Android 12 Beta, it doesn’t do anything yet. Check back soon for more details and screenshots.
Do you want to guess what this widget will do?
