I've defined "List View Actions in Lightning Experience" using Setup -> Object Manager -> (my custom object) -> Search Layouts -> List View -> List View Actions in Lightning Experience, but I can't find a way to put this into metadata files. There is a searchLayouts section in .object file, but List View Actions are not there when I retrieve metadata from the org. Is it even possible to do this?

release notes of 44.0 API saying that lightning list view actions are mentioned in massQuickActions tag in searchLayout section of object. Example from documentation

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<CustomObject xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">
    . . .
    . . .

so if you have Winter '19 org, your package.xml should contains the following:



you have to include quick action and object in your package.xml file
