Search capabilities in Android extend the familiar web-based Google search bar to search both device-based local content and Internet-based external content. You can further use this search mechanism to discover and invoke applications directly from the search results on the home page. Android makes these features possible by providing a search framework that allows all applications to participate in the search.
