GOOGLE PIXEL 6 SERIES 'AT A GLANCE' WIDGET GETTING NEW SETTINGS FOR FITNESS, BEDTIME



With its great features, one of Google's most recent phones, the Google Pixel 6, has everyone on cloud nine. It is even being hailed as one of the year's greatest flagship gadgets. The "At a Glance" widget on the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones is apparently getting a fresh upgrade. Users will be able to set their sleep and exercise goals with the new version. The new "At a Glance" settings are expected to be included in the January update for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices. Many new features have been added to the At a Glance widget as part of the January update, including Doorbell, Timer and Stopwatch, Bedtime, and more.


Users of the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will get some new options for the At a Glance widget in the Pixel launcher, according to Android expert Mishaal Rahman. Users will apparently receive toggles for Timer and Stopwatch, Bedtime, and Fitness settings at the moment. Data from Adidas Running and Strava is supposed to be displayed under the Fitness option. It's possible that the Fitness option will also support other fitness applications. At a Glance also has a feature that allows you to conceal important information from the lock screen.

The launch of Google Pixel 6a and Pixel Watch Google I/O 2022 is predicted to be a success.


Earlier last month, Rahman announced the At a Glance upgrade. The Google app has been updated to version 13.0.6.29, which includes the widget. Toggles for Doorbell, Timer and Stopwatch, Bedtime, Fitness, Connected devices, Flashlight, and Safety Check are claimed to be included in the update. At the time, Rahman stated that only the widget's Doorbell option was functional due to a server-side change.
