Didn't see anything in the roadmap for when the Microsoft Search new experience would be available in GCC. Also looking to use acronym search when possible. Currently, the MS Search experience in GCC is still old school. On standard tenant, acronym search is available.

@melkinsco PnP apps work in GCC, since you can deploy them yourself. We are currently experimenting with PnP Modern Search and it has a lot of possibilities. Here is a link - https://microsoft-search.github.io/pnp-modern-search/

@Jeremy Wood Thanks Jeremy, we do make extensive use of the PnP parts today. What we don't have access to are things like Acronyms which would be very useful as well. In non-GCC tenants, we are starting to leverage these features from Microsoft Search. They're just not available in GCC. Also, the common look and feel has not yet found it's way to GCC. The search bar is now on top for Teams and Outlook, but not for SharePoint. That is still (at least in our tenant) above the left Nav on Team sites and on the top right on Comm sites.

@Mikael Svenson Inputs from you would be very helpful Sir.
It is October 1st 2021 been almost a year and GCC tenants still does not have " Microsoft search " in SharePoint Online yet.
Could not find any roadmap either.
Looks like it is not communicated properly in public articles.
Still I can see the search bar appear on Left (team site) and Right side (communication)
My customer's main goal was to disable this search box and not confuse users as they have deployed PNP search.
Unfortunately the commands only works for Microsoft search.
Set-PnPSearchSettings -SearchBoxInNavBar Hidden -Scope Site
Would really appreciate if you can suggest some workaround solution.

It's quite bizarre that Microsoft allows PnP search customization and meanwhile still keep the built-in search. And more important, it wouldn't allow disabling the built-in, so businesses under the GCC license all face the two different search boxes on the modernized SharePoint website. Please get some useful updates!

Used this script editor webpart in tenant and added the below code to hide the searchbox.

@Prattay I was happy too early. The built-in search box is located more than the home page. For example, it is on the document library page and it is still visible. Please advise a way to disable once for all if possible. And the document library page doesn't seem to allow for editing. Thanks.
