Chrome OS Launcher Search to Get Categories

Your Chromebook’s launcher can now search a lot of things. To make things easier, Google is adding categories to search results.

If you search from your Chromebook’s launcher, you will see more than just installed apps. App suggestions from the Play Store, settings, and help content; the list is growing.

Launcher Search

Is it slowly becoming difficult to use? A bit confusing?

Google is working on a fix. You will soon see categories in launcher search results. When your search results are grouped into categories, it will be easier to use and to find what you are lookingf or.

We spotted a new experimental Chrome OS flag today in the Chromium code:

Launcher Categorical Search: Launcher search results grouped by categories

We should be able to see and test this flag soon in the Canary channel of Chrome OS. Come back soon for screenshots of this feature.
