How Google will prevent the accidental triggering of the Circle to Search feature

In the recent Made by Google Podcast, Product Manager Erin Lynch and Director of Product Management Alistair Pott highlighted the user concerns about the Circle to Search feature. The duo mentioned that the feature is sensitive to touch and getting triggered by a simple long press on the navigation bar or the home button, creating some major problems. Lynch said, “We still have further to go, and we're working a lot on making sure it's triggered when you want. It's not triggered when you don't want.” However, the timeless for when a new update will be rolled out was not confirmed.
