The June Feature Drop was announced on Monday, and as of today, the Pixels At A Glance widget has a very useful Flashlight reminder and control.
The most significant portion of this month’s quarterly Feature Drop, in my opinion, was the most recent round of At a Glance updates. When the torch is on, a reminder for flashlight appears in the upper-left area of your home and lockscreen. It’s useful for situations when, especially in daylight, you can’t even tell the flash is on. You may tap there to quickly turn it off as well.
When At a Glance contains many things, you can swipe between them like cards. By long-pressing the top of your homescreen and selecting Customize, you may disable the feature, which is enabled by default. Between Connected devices and Safety check, there is a flashlight space.
Flashlight, along with Google Weather and Calendar events, will probably get the most usage of all the AAG features now available. When you want to turn off the flashlight, double-tapping the back of the device is significantly faster than opening Quick Settings.
Air quality index (AQI) alerts will soon be added to Google’s lineup of alerts, which already includes alerts for the Nest Doorbell and weather and temperature information.
As of this afternoon, Pixel phones running both Android 12 QPR3 and 13 can be found with Flashlight in At a Glance. On Wednesday, some users immediately received it together with Android 13 Beta 3. Whatever the case, this rollout is moving much more quickly than Connected Devices in March.
