Circle to Search expands to more Android phones in 2023, after Pixel and Galaxy exclusivity
• Circle to Search will be available on other Android phones starting October 2023, after being exclusive to Galaxy and Pixel phones for most of the year.
• The delayed wider release until September 2023 could be a strategic move to build hype and exclusivity for upcoming Google and Samsung launches.
• Rumored upcoming devices that may launch with Circle to Search exclusivity include the Pixel 8a and Galaxy Z Fold 6 / Z Flip 6.
• Holding back the feature from other Android devices until September 2023 helps amp up the exclusivity factor.
• The convenience and speed of Circle to Search makes it an appealing feature, though it's a bummer it may take so long to reach other Android devices.
