Google said last week that it was modifying widgets for Android tablets. The new circle design for the updated Google Drive widget is now available on Material You.

Google is particularly adding shortcuts to start a new document in Docs, Sheets, or Slides to “Drive fast actions.” The bottom creation sheet’s icon from the bar layout has been replaced by this.

This new shortcut joins others to open Drive, perform a search, upload, and start the camera quickly. Everything is set up in a 32 configuration by default.

The Google Drive widget, however, takes on a rotary dial-like appearance when it is made bigger. The former distinctive appearance of Material You widgets was an x-shape; this is a new shape (or flower petal). Even while it only really works for programs with lots of shortcuts, it is undoubtedly attractive.

This new circular widget arrangement for Google Drive is available on tablets. Android phones do not support this new design.
Portrait versus landscape

Google has also started rolling out a modified version of the Keep widget that moves from the sidebar to the bottom bar as of last week. Dual-pane views are still not generally accessible as of yet.

Google is simultaneously releasing multi-instance support for Docs, Sheets, and Slides on Android. This will be completely launched over the next few days and allows you to have two windows open simultaneously. Similar changes had already been made to Google Drive.
