Google displays the weather in all ways on Android

Google has started rolling out a new weather display feature in its Maps app on Android, as channel editor Nail Sadykov discovered. Google Telegram News. This new feature has been available on iOS for nearly four years, but has only just appeared on Android. When users click on the new “Local Weather” box in the search options, a window opens displaying air quality and weather forecasts for the coming hours.

The weather cannot be ignored

This development is part of Google’s broader push to provide weather updates on as many of its devices as possible. For example, the weather UI within the Google app was redesigned in June, with the launch of the Pixel Tablet: its interface now respects the Material You design signature. The redesign is currently rolling out to all Pixel smartphones, and uses data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for greater accuracy.

And that’s not all. The watch app is no longer limited to its sole role as an alarm clock or stopwatch; It also now provides weather conditions. A recent update (version 7.6) has introduced a weather forecast option that users can enable when creating a new alarm.

When the alarm is deactivated, a home screen is displayed that provides a quick summary of weather conditions and outside temperature, as well as additional information about the upcoming day. This app also provides alarm sync feature for smart watches. In addition to providing synchronized alarms, this integration also features an adaptive chime option: only the watch will ring when worn, not the smartphone.

Last May, rumors mentioned that the search engine was developing a standalone weather application, separate from the Google application. It is possible that it will be launched in the Pixel update expected in December (Android 14 QPR1). Wear OS, the operating system for the Pixel Watch and other connected watches, already includes its own weather app.

Instant access to weather data is becoming increasingly critical, especially in an era where extreme weather events are becoming more common. Therefore, integrating this data into a widely used application such as Google Maps can help make trips safer.
