On-device search history
Maybe I didn't notice this before or I'm just missing something.
I recently reset my device. Now it doesn't seem to remember my past searches from the google search bar (app not browser). I swear it did before the reset.
Now when I could open the search app then go menu -> settings -> google search, the "clear on-device search history" is greyed out.
I do have web history off or paused on my google account via the pc, but I don't see an option to do that on the phone (again not in the browser). Unless they have now better integrated the phone search settings with pc search settings?
Not sure if this matters, but the google search app (blue icon with the g inside it), isn't an option to install in the play store either. It's on the phone as it's a system app, but not compatible in the market.
Is the search setting via the pc and the phone all the same now thanks to ICS and higher?
