Does anyone else have and know how to overcome this Gemini 'feature'? If I press any character key while on the home screen Google Search pops up with that charter in the search bar. This invariably leads to GS being on when I first open the device to some inadvertent button pressing by me and/or the screen. Does anyone know how to turn off this feature as on the very rare occasions I would need it I'm very happy to go to the very considerable trouble of opening my browser to do a Google search?

This can be achived with the latest version of Nova Launcher! Settings -> Home Screen -> Search Provider,
set to Nova Search

Actually, no. If Nova Search is activated, pressing a key simply brings another search bubble. If I'm not mistaken, graynada--and me too--wants nothing to happen if a key is pressed when on Home Screen.

Yes thanks Jake, that would be the desired outcome, plus as an aside, I don't use Nova Launcher anyway. Maybe Oreo will be the answer.....
