But now, thanks to the new Xposed module from developer. Now you can wave the Google search bar a simple good bye in one simple step. And the best part is that, it will work with almost any stock launcher out there.

From there, swipe over to the Versions tab, and hit the “Download” button and press “Install” when asked. After Finishing that, make sure to activate the module and also reboot to make changes take effect.
Enjoy Your Launcher Without the Search Bar
After you get back up, you should immediately notice the search bar on your home screen is now gone. Hurrey! that’s really all there is to it. The module works by just blocking a hook that the Google app uses to inject itself into your home screen.S o this works with any launcher that comes with a permanently embedded Google search bar.
