Google Search Bar Not Working on Moto G – Why is Google Not Working

You might be experiencing a sudden issue on your Moto G’s google search bar not working. That means whenever you try searching, it will not return any results and it could also be unresponsive. To deal with this problem, I have mapped out some simple fixes below that should help you with Google not working. 


If your Google Search bar isn’t working on your Moto G, then this is most likely due to a software issue. There are times that your phone will experience software glitches as you use it over an extended period. 

Network-related connectivity problems can also trigger relevant symptoms to occur. Follow the steps below to get your Google Search bar working again on your Moto G:

    • Try turning your Moto G completely off, waiting 10 seconds and turning back on .
    • If that didn’t fix it, the next step is to “Clear the Cache” of the Google App. 
      • Go to Settings > Apps.
      • Swipe right until you land on the “All” tab and look for the Google App.
      • You will see the window below.
      • Tap on Force Stop.
      • Tap on Clear Cache.
      • Tap on Manage Space and select the bottom option “Clear all Data”.
