At a Glance demo video gives us an early look at changes to the widget


What you need to know

  • A demo video of how Google’s new At a Glance widget will function shows how the widget plays off its Material You design language.
  • The widget notably misses out on counting down to an event and only displays the time it will occur.
  • Google could be preparing this new widget for the launch of Android 14 ahead of its Pixel 8 series.

We’ve seemingly gotten a better visual representation of what Google’s new At a Glance widget may look like once it rolls out for non-Pixel smartphones.

Known app deep-diver AssembleDeBug on Twitter posted a short one-minute video of the different style options for the widget alongside a slight information change (via Android Police). One of the notable changes design-wise is the widget has gone from being completely transparent to falling into a pill shape.
