Big Android 12 upgrade just leaked — this will save you time

Third-party launchers might get a shot in the arm with the launch of Android 12. The developers of Niagara Launcher have located an entry for “AppSearchManager” API in the documentation for Android 12’s developer preview, and it seems to suggest that any launcher will be allowed to include universal device search as part of the package.

Universal device search is the kind of functionality you get from Spotlight on iPhone or the Google widget either in the Pixel Launcher or placed directly on your home screen. Rather than limiting search results to the internet, Google Play store or the contents of your phone, results for all three are combined, meaning you don’t need to search each area individually.
