How to Remove Google Search Bar blank on BLU Vivo XL 4

Pete asked 3 months ago

Hi there,

How can I delete/ remove Google Search Bar (GSB) from BLU Vivo XL4, as it shows blank white (Home screen). Even after disabling Google, it doesn't work?! Or better yet, how to change the default screen? Please advise, thank you in advance.

Hello Pete,
Long press on it and you will find the option of delete right on the top of the screen. You can delete in that way.

  • Tap and hold your home screen. A new menu on top of screen will appear.
  • At the top of the screen will be the Google Search bar. Tap and hold it and an option to remove will appear.

Disable the Google App
I recommends disabling the Google app in settings, which works for all the Android versions including Android Oreo and Android Pie.
Here's how it works:

  • Open Settings, then open Apps.
  • In the All apps list, find Google app, or just Google, tap it and select disableReboot your phone and the Search bar should be gone!
