  1. Toggle off search suggestions

    When searching for a term, the Web search suggestions take too much space on the screen. With the keyboard open it's hard to see the other search suggestions (People, files, settings etc).
    I end up having to close the keyboard to select what I want.

    In fact I didn't even know about things like the settings suggestions because of this UX issue. It would be nice to turn off the Web search suggestions.

  2. In the search screen First result to be apps then the web search

    Yeah sometimes I want to find an app on my phone but when I search it it appears so down I can't tap it unless I close the keyboard and I would like that the apps were up and then the web search.

  5. Accents

    For the search engine, it's should be better and faster to search withouts accents. With french language it's boring to search an app with an accent

  6. Apply Search bar style to settings screen

    You can already set the Search bar style for the home screen. Why not apply that same style for the Search bar in the Settings screen?

  7. 搜索

    搜索功能可以自定义排序,比如我只需要用来搜索本地应用,那么每当我输入字符时,即使已经检索到了我需要的应用,搜索建议会把它挤到下方,我需关掉输入法才能看到应用的搜索结果。这极大程度上影响了搜索的体验。建议加入选择搜索范围或者能够更改搜索结果的排序。

  8. 字母引索定位問題

    字母引索定位太靠下,一個是會被大拇指擋住,另一個是太靠下而且只能顯示第一排app,如果想要的app在第二或者第三排那就得再次活動屏幕。這個操作不直觀,而且還繁瑣。如果把引索結果定位到屏幕中間稍微靠下一點就更好了。使用機型是三星S9+,望改進。

  9. Option to disable cards in search of

    When I go to search something, I don't want cards popping up a half second after my suggested searches do. I end up tapping, trying to hit a suggested result, and instead I hit a card that is 100% of the time completely unrelated to what I'm actually looking for. There should be an option to disable this. It's bad UX.

  10. Integrate Microsoft Edge into the search menu for faster loading of web results.

    When searching for something using the search widget or the swipe down gesture, preload Edge so it can proactively load web results.

  14. Allow setting image search button default action to barcode scan

    Very recently the search button I used to scan for barcodes changed to camera search in "automatic" mode. It is slow or unable to read QR codes, so now I need an extra tap to switch to bar code reading mode. I'd like to have an option to set the default mode to bar code reading.

  17. Reduce Amount of and/or Disable the Web Searches in the Search bar

    The search bar has way to many options for web searching that it can almost hide the apps under your keyboard, it would be great if we can minimise the web options to 3 instead of the long list of web searches we get when typing something and or have the option to disable the web searches

  18. Please give options for how many search recommendations rows are shown after typing on search bar, thank you!

    Search recommendations row are shown automatically, sometimes it shows 4 rows while loading and showing 7 after it finished loading. The problem being, right after we're about to click an app on the search result, the search row suddenly appear taking some space replacing the app search result. This often made the tap missed on the result it shouldn't be.

    Would've been really nice if we have the option to choose how many rows are shown consistently. For example 3 even 6 rows.

  19. Disable automatic space adding in the search bar

    When I type a website url into search bar it automatically puts a space after dot symbol. It's a bit frustrating. I think the search bar must be more similar to MS Edge's search bar

  20. On searching apps, search history and suggested apps space contracting and expanding often always leads to misclick 😭.

    In the search screen, when I search something the search history and suggested apps space expand and contract with a delay to show desired results in both space. This often always leading to misclick. So if both spaces are fixed irrespective of the number of resists in each space it will be very helpful.
