I want my Android device to work the way I want it, and I want it to be useful and make a positive contribution to my life. Recently, animations appear in the Pixel Search bar when a seasonal doodle appears on the Google homepage. It draws my attention and distracts me from what I consider important. After a few days of trouble, I set out to turn off these animations.
When I saw the animations for the first time, I found them cool, cute and picturesque. I then noticed that they changed frequently, which made me more frustrated than anything else. Pausing the animations will reduce interrupts on the splash screen. I am glad that they do not consume my energy anymore.
Disabling Animations in the Pixel Search Bar
Open your phone and go to the Home screen. Tap and hold on the search bar below. If you do, a small pop-up will appear. Tap "Settings," and then on the "Search Box Effects" page, search for and disable "Search Box Effects." Your Google Search bar no longer shows Google Doodle animations!
