Weather integration to the Clock app for Pixels:
Google has started rolling out a new feature to its Clock app. According to 9to5Google, the app adds weather information to the Clock apps for Pixel phones running Android 14 QPR1.
To activate this feature, tap on the button “Add local weather” under the local time and date. Remember, once you activate it, there is no way to disable it. (Image: 9to5google)
You can also get the information in the Clock’s World widget, but it requires a lot of space on your home screen (at least 4×3). You will also be able to set the Clock app to show you a full-screen weather forecast. For a better understanding, if you didn’t get the update yet, the rollout is still in progress.
Bigger search bar in Google Apps:
The search bar in Gmail and Google Chat is now bigger, all because of the latest Material 3 design guidelines. The search bar is now taller and 56dp in height, previous one was 48dp. Other Google apps should also follow.
