Pixel Weather widget breaks at 100 degree temperature
It was southwest Dealing with peak heat With temperatures of 100 degrees since midweek and expected to continue until Labor Day. When testing the Pixel Weather app over the past few days, it became apparent that the main tool was not properly designed to show temperatures above 100.
Last year, Android 12 on Pixel phones couple feet From the delightful material you widgets are quite information-intensive and have a dynamic color design that matches your wallpaper. So far, it remains exclusive to Google phones even on other Android 12/13 devices. (The same can be said about a Specific YouTube Music widget It’s very convenient.)
The largest widget configuration shows the current temperature and condition, the day’s high and low, and a two-day forecast. The other key part is the outlook for the next four hours. When it is above 100, the address code is amusingly pushed to the next line. This moves the visual representation down and as a result the time increment disappears.
As you can see below, everything works as usual when it’s only two digits, but three visually breaks things. Adjusting the display size and text system doesn’t seem to make a difference.
This is of course still more than usable, but it reveals a distinct design case that is no longer a remote possibility these days. Hopefully, Google will handle the 100-degree temperatures with a future update to the Google app, which supports these weather widgets.
Speaking of fixes, there are still people who sometimes have issues with widgets not updating without a click that unlocks the full experience for you. It would also be nice if it was finally resolved.
Anyway, I hope so keep calm.
