Some detailed weather forecast for your home screen and lock screen in the morning


Google Pixel 7 Pro and its younger brother were launched in October. They’re Google’s best phones yet, and aside from some optional hardware upgrades, they’ve also brought some exclusive software features. One is now finally finding its way to older Pixel phones. People have reported seeing expanded weather forecasts on Pixel 6 home and lock screens in the morning, a feature first launched with the Google Pixel 7.

Extended Outlook is part of the At a Glance widget, which is a non-removable text bar above your Pixel phone’s home screen and lock screen. This tool always shows you important information in context, such as upcoming calendar events, weather warnings, and traffic reports. By default, it always shows you the current temperature and conditions. New is an extended forecast that only appears in the morning.

Grabs the bottom line, this forecast shows you the current weather and temperature first, as always, and then a forecast that includes the day’s highest and lowest temperatures, as well as which conditions will dominate. These expectations usually remain in place and cannot be ruled out until they disappear on their own around 10 am.

Right now, we’ve got one of our guides coming up with the new predictions on the Pixel 6, so it looks like the feature is just getting started. If you own a Pixel 6 or older on Android 13, be sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast.

This new expanded weather forecast isn’t exactly a game-changing feature, but it’s good to see that Google hasn’t forgotten its old hardware. We can only hope that some other exclusive features will make their way to older phones as well, like new controls for the improved night mode for the camera and a noise canceling tool in Google Photos. In the meantime, check out what’s new in software on the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.
