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.
