We all love Google Doodles. On special events, Google’s logo changes to a particular design or animation. Now, Google Doodles won’t be present only on the Google home page. As it turns out, the cute doodles will also show up on the Pixel’s home screen search box.
In the past, we have also seen Google placing its Doodles in the Discover feed. This change is a nice one, but if Pixel users don’t like it, they can also choose to hide Google Doodles from their home screen. In order to do this, you need to tap and hold the Pixel launcher search bar and then tap the “Search box effects” slider and then disable it. If you change your mind, you can enable it once again.
The feature did not roll out to all phones. That probably is a trial and Google will release it to everyone if everything goes well. The new addition is a cute, fun one, and it is also optional, which makes it even better.
Google Doodles have existed for 21 years now. The first one appeared back in 1998 for the Burning Man festival. The doodle was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who are are the Google founders. After the first doodle, Dennis Hwang became in charge of doodles. In time, the team of Google illustrators and engineers grew.
Google also accepts suggestions, and you can send them a mail at [email protected] By now, Google had more than 1000 doodles, including animations and interactive ones.
The first Google Doodle used for Google Pixel was the one marking the official beginning of spring, March 20th. The doodle is a cute flower, representing the Spring Equinox.
