    Hi, when enrolling devices with Android Enterprice i can`t manage to remove the Google search box on the device, i have tried to blacklist the app by adding com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox, the only thing that happends is that the Google app icon is shaded and not possible to use, the search box widget is aso chades and not possible to use, but i want to remove them not disable them 
    Is there a solution to remove this?

    Hi Kjell
    I've looked into this and need some more information from you: 
    - Can you confirm that for the portal you are using, the Android Enterprise integration has been performed? (Setup > Services..)
    - If you look at the device in portal inventory what is the "Device Enrollment Mode" showing on the home page?

    Hi, AE integration is preformed, The device enrollment mode is Device Owner. 
    The device was enrolled by using afw#maas360

    As of right now it can only be disabled.  A request for enhancement may be raised to understand if it's possible to add any features that would hide it.
