    Most phones allow you to hide apps from showing up in the app drawer. The default Pixel Launcher doesn't have this ability. You'll need to install a 3rd-party launcher, such as Nova Launcher.

    If you do install a 3rd-party launcher, look in the app drawer settings to hide apps. In the case of Nova Launcher, follow these steps:
    1. Long press the home screen
    2. Select Settings
    3. Select App & widget drawers
    4. Scroll down to Hide apps
    5. Check all the apps you wish to hide

    Which 3rd party launcher do you use
    I bet they just changed the nomenclature.
