This was right in front of me all this time. The New Android M launcher = Chrome launcher 2.0. The app drawer is more than an app drawer its deeply integrated with google search as seen on the chrome launcher 2.0. Click the link below to see the results that popped up when i search for instagram on my chrome launcher. You see the chrome store, twitter profile of someone, system files, contacts, places, etc. So basically its unifying google search on android because you can do these things already on the google search desktop home widget and in google now (search). You can see that they are rolling out a new search widget into all their products like the Google play store. Google introduced a new Chrome launcher in March which they called Chrome launcher 2.0. It emphasized search with a new search app icon. This new launcher is the best way to start new activities on Chrome OS, like performing a Google search or launching apps. It's fast, simple, and helps you get things done. Search has been enhanced to help you find what you are looking for faster, apps you most often use right have been put at your fingertips, and the power of Google Now has been brought to your Chromebook.
Android are uniting to form a stronger union. The first clear example of this is the apps will look and act the same. Always listening is another example of this. Chrome and Android messaging /notification system will be unified to me thats the next big step. Its just a matter of time. Right now Android apps are on running chrome. Web apps are coming to Android. They added chrome notifications on android. They added app indexing in the chrome launcher where you install apps from the launcher. These are the changes people are witnessing.
