The Google app is trying out a bottom search bar on Android.

The change is being tested in version 14.48.26.29.arm64 of the Google app so it’s not widely available yet. The bar remains at the bottom when displaying search results, meaning users with larger phones don’t have to stretch their thumbs so far when typing.

The Chrome app on iOS introduced a similar update for the URL bar last month.

As someone with small hands and a large phone, this is a welcome update.
