They really didn't have to redesign a text box. Please stop reinventing the wheel. I don't need another pop up in my life.

Maybe they reserve that space for future AI suggestions?

Almost certainly the answer. Same reason they just hobbled their "ok Google" by not letting you access it with the screen off anymore. They're going to switch engines and they want to reintroduce the same features all over again but make it feel like an upgrade.

On the new pixels, as you start typing you get some AI tools that will rewrite your message, make suggestions, etc

Pixel 7 Pro here, haven't seen this at all, it's just dead space for me.

The 7 isn't new anymore. That person meant the 8

Pixel 8 pro here. I haven't seen it either.

A tragedy. I hate that little useless space. Those features should be on Gboard not messages
