Search bar widget missing

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I don't have the search bar widget on my home screen and it's not available when I long press to add widgets, it's completely missing.

 

Attached is my home screen without the widget and an image I Googled that has it.

 

Anybody know why it's missing and how to get it back?Screenshot_20170427-221044.pngMy home screen without the widget

No but I found it. I didn't see it because it wasn't named what I thought it would have been.

did you disable gmail or some other google service? If you don't disable gmail or some other google service properly it will disable all google services.

Such as the search bar and the "ok google".

Don't disable any google stuff from long pressing on the icon.

I suddenly noticed that the search bar changed style from round to square. I didn't do any changes such as another launcher etc. Any idea how to change it back?

Did you try removing it and then putting it back?

Did you go to Apps and look for Google (by itself)? Perhaps see if its disabled.
