When Google Launched its Google Pixel 2, one of the first things that caught my eyes was the “At a Glance” widget. As far as I was concerned, it was a small but ingenious idea from Google to show your upcoming calendar events just right on top of the time and weather. I hated the fact that Google made that feature a Pixel exclusive, and we even wrote an entire article on how you can get Pixel 2 features on any Android device. But workarounds are always workarounds, and it’s better to get features officially from Google. Thankfully, now that Google has made the “At a Glance” widget available for all Android devices running Android Nougat and above, here is how you can get it on your device:
Get Google Pixel 2 “At a Glance Widget”
- Since the feature is only available for beta users, first, you will need to sign up as a beta tester for Google which you can do by clicking on the link. After you sign in with your Google account, you will see a “Become a Tester” button on the page. Click on it to.
2. Once you have done that, you should see a message saying that, “You are now a tester“.
3. Now just wait for a few minutes and open Google Play Store and search for Google App. You should see that a beta update is available for you. Install, the update.
4. After installing the update, open the widgets panel and you will find the “At a Glance” widget under the Google sub-section of the widget panel. Just hold and drag it to use it on your home screen.
