Google launched the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL recently. If you’ve carefully looked at both the devices, then you might have noticed that the Google Search box which used to appear on the top of the devices now seems to be at the bottom. It’s quite evident that all the people won’t be getting the Pixel 2 or the 2 XL, but they for sure can get the Google search box at the bottom of the screen.

The only sad thing about this is, you’ll need to upgrade to the “Plus” version to get this, which costs up to $5. In India, it costs around Rs. 150 for the plus version.
