Google app v7.1 beta APK teardown reveals pollen counter and notification panel search bar
Nonetheless, an APK dismantle in the latest release reveals code on a possible pollen counter feature and a new search bar.
A new “search bar in the notification panel” is also set to make an appearance in this version of the app, according to what the APK code contains. Again, detail on its functions or looks is lacking, so we can’t tell what searches it will perform, or how exactly it would fit in your notification screen. The new search space might come as a replacement to the home screen Google search, or just be small search-prompting tile - we can't tell before it's actually live.
In any case, neither the pollen count, nor the new search bar have gone live just yet for testers on Android beta and Android O platforms. Depending on which part of the globe you live in, we hope the pollen monitor will kick-in in time for the allergy madness. However, since its an APK report, we can’t promise that you will get it at all. Just get some extra tissues and you will be alright.
