Google has been testing a material colored (basically blue) navigation bar along along with a bottom search bar. There is also an iOS style switch present in the Google app which allows you to switch to Gemini from the discover page. I have shared about these changes on my Twitter here.

In this post, I will explain how you can enable both of these features right now in your Google app without waiting for Google to roll out. I hope you are not totally noob because I won't be adding a single screenshot to guide you, just read and follow. It's the best I can do for now :p 

Required things -

  • Rooted devices running Android 12+
  • Google App latest beta version from Play Store or Apkmirror
  • GMS Flags app installed with root permission granted. (GitHub)
  • Gemini should be available for you already in your Google app.

Steps - 

  1. Open the GMS flags app and tap the Search tab. Here look for Google app in the list and tap it.
  2. Here you will see the list of packages. The following package will appear among the top 3.
  3. Tap on the above package name a new screen will open with all the flags. Now click on the 3 dots menu on the top right of this page and click on "Add a multiple flags"
  4. You will have a new page again and you have to enter these flags in the text field, just copy and paste as it is. Each flag should be in a different line.

    Then just tap on the Save button in bottom right.
  5. Now clear data of Google app from the settings and open Google app again. You might have to force stop once or twice to see the changes.

Also please note that two people have already tested the flags and it worked for them. I can't guarantee the same for everyone. Other things to mention is that these flags won't enable the bottom search bar in the Discover page, but you will have the bottom search bar when you search for something. For more such flags you can join my Telegram Channel where I sometimes share flags.
