Maps, Play Store, and YouTube search shortcuts are prepared by Pixel Launcher.

The Pixel Launcher debuted a new on-device search experience at the top of the app launcher with Android 12. The Pixel Launcher is developing search shortcuts outside of the Google app even if it is momentarily absent from Android 13 Beta 1.

Regarding APK Insight: We’ve decompiled the most recent version of an app that Google put on the Play Store in our APK Insight post. When we decompile these files—known as APKs for Android apps—we can find numerous lines of code that allude to potential future features. Remember that Google might or might not ever deploy these features, and our understanding of what they are might be limited. However, we’ll strive to give those that are closer to completion a chance to demonstrate how they’ll seem if they do ship. Read on with that in mind.

This more recent Pixel Launcher search experience is designed with on-device inquiries in mind. It can be configured to start the keyboard immediately when the app launcher is swiped up. Nevertheless, it advises using Google Search if none are returned.

The Android System Intelligence version S.17 discloses that YouTube, Play Store, Maps, and Settings are all being worked on. Tapping on a search shortcut should automatically enter that query into the associated application, much like with Google Search.

For a few months, Android 12 will remain the stable build, making it the perfect candidate for the upcoming Pixel Feature Drop.
