To check the features you have toggled on for the At a Glance widget on your Pixel, long-press on an empty space near the widget. You’ll see a pop-up lozenge that says “Customize.” Tap it and on the next menu tap on the gear icon for At a Glance. You’ll see all of the settings you have throttled on for the At a Glance widget, and the settings that you can toggle on.

One of the most recognisable Pixel features is its At a Glance widget, which displays information on the device’s screen such as weather data, upcoming events from your calendar, a reminder that indicates whether your Pixel is equipped with a flashlight, how much time is left on an alarm, your boarding pass for an upcoming flight, a photo from your doorbell camera, and severe weather alerts.

Highlights

  • In a similar vein, one of the strings of code discovered by 9to5Google shows that the At a Glance widget might also be able to show the status of a rideshare ordered by the user. In this situation, even with your screen locked, the widget would show how far away your Uber or Lyft rideshare is away from you. As for the aforementioned food delivery feature, At a Glance would show you how soon your food or groceries order from Door Dash is expected to arrive. Apple will have a similar feature in iOS 16 that shows users the status of an ordered ride share – Hidden code reveals three new At a Glance features for Pixel handsets.

  • 9to5Google has found hidden code in the PlayStore that shows potential new features for the At a Glance widget. One possible new addition to the widget is a “cross device timer” that would show on your Pixel’s display the timers set on your home devices. Another possible new feature for the widget would show users the estimated time of arrival (ETA) and status of a food delivery that was ordered online.

Apple will have a similar feature in iOS 16 that shows users the status of an ordered ride share. Later this year Apple will add a similar Live Notifications feature for the iOS 16 lock screen that will show the status of an Uber or Lyft ride share on the way to pick up a user. As for the new At a Glance features, we could see these arrive on Pixel handsets when the stable version of Android 13 drops, most likely in August.
