This widget is a default widget by Google and users can delete this widget simply by mentioned some easy methods but if your phone has the stock version of Nexus so I will recommend you don’t remove this widget because many people had face issue after removing it otherwise follow the below steps and disable search bar from any smartphone.

This widget helpfull for some time, suppose if I want to open google chrome then I would search through search bar, but mostly I search by another browser by opening direct from their location. I have seen many devices has no any disable google search bar feature, but they can also remove it. I will not recommend you to use this widget because it has no any feature for delete history. If someone searches anything by search bar so, any one can quickly look on your search history by tapping on that search area, and another browser has feature of remove or deletes history which is pretty much good because no one wants to show his/her browser history.😛
