Android 13 will change the design of searches on Google
Android 13 should not completely revolutionize Google’s operating system, but the American giant continues to make some small design changes, including in particular at the level of search suggestions.
Google recently launched a new beta update of its Google application (version 13.20), and this one notably brings a new design for the search suggestions. Currently, when you do a search on the Google application, the suggestions are displayed one after the other on a plain, light or dark background, depending on the settings of your Android smartphone.
Now, in the new version, each suggestion is presented in its own individual box. The boxes also adopt a plain background different from the rest of the application, so that they are more easily visible to users. According to information from 9to5Google, this new design should appear in searches for applications on the Pixel Launcher in an upcoming beta of Android 13, and then when the new operating system is released at the end of the year.
