The Google smartphone app recently received updates, but this caused problems for Pixel users. It looks like the update is breaking the dark mode of the Google app.
Also, many users complain that the Google app has lost functionality after the update. Now, Google search bar does not search for apps installed on Pixel phone.
Regarding the problem it causes in the dark mode of the Google app, the Search view no longer adapts well to this type of configuration (1, 2, 3).
The Google app can no longer search for apps installed on certain Pixel phones
One of the most useful features of the Google app search bar is being able to access all the content on the phone. This includes both your saved files and your apps.
Now, after one of the most recent updates, some Google Pixel phone users have lost this feature. The Google search bar on their phones no longer detects installed apps.
This feature of the Google app is often used a lot by many people. Allows quick access to an app without having to open the app drawer and without having the app icon on the home screen.
Among the various reports of unhappy users, a Google product expert has confirmed that the issue has been reported to the development team.
The update also interrupts the dark mode of the Google app, white background in search results
There is another issue derived from the most recent Google app updates. In this case, it seems to “break” the integration of the search bar with the dark mode of the system.
Reports indicate that this problem has arisen suddenly. This makes that if you have turned on the dark mode of the phone, when you touch the google search bar, it will have an annoying white background.
The white background of the search bar and its results make it very difficult to read and even tire the eyes. In addition, the letters of the search results are light gray in color.
Both issues have been escalated
According to reports from affected users, the two issues started to occur at the same time for a week. The second bug was also reported to the development team by a Google product expert.
For the moment, Google has not offered any further updates on this subject. Considering the fact that the problem has already been escalated, it is expected that the solution to the bug will soon arrive.
