Google is releasing Android 13 Beta 3.2 this afternoon, and it includes more user-facing changes than normal for a patch, especially to the Pixel Launcher.

Our Pixel 4a was welcomed by the newest Google Lens symbol in the bottom homescreen search bar after manually sideloading Beta 3.2. Google changed the visual search tool’s logo in March 2021 to resemble a single-use camera with a bulge for the flash and viewfinder at the top. It took the place of the earlier rounded square. The goal of the corporation was to more clearly explain that pressing that button will activate the camera.

Up until today in the Pixel Launcher, this more recent icon only appeared in the Google app. Both Google Photos and the standalone app’s shortcut from the Play Store continue to use the old icon.

The Android 13 Beta 3.2 update also brought back Always show keyboard when launching the app launcher. This option was never deleted from Android 12, but Google did so once it introduced the new unified search interface. You can access the toggle by long-pressing the homescreen and selecting “Home settings” and “Search your phone.” It is deactivated by default.
