Android 12 is here and brings a lot to the table but you may find yourself wanting to customize the default date and weather widget, dubbed At a Glance, anyway. And that’s precisely what this guide is here to discuss. Namely, how to customize the At a Glance widget in Android 12 so that it only shows the details you want it to show.
Here’s how to customize the Android 12 At a Glance widget
Android 12 brings a lot of personalization to the table, making it possible to not only customize a widget but also how those look. One of the sole exceptions to that, unfortunately, is “At a Glance.”
While the widget doesn’t, on its own, look terrible, it also doesn’t support the latest theme elements to quite the same extent. Meaning that some users will be left with at least one widget, loaded with potential information, that doesn’t support the colors to help it match the rest of their UI.
Moreover, some users may want to keep the widget for its date information and calendar entries. But not for its weather details. Or not for other details that are supported by other widgets. But having duplicated information on-screen is, summarily, almost worse. So let’s take a look at how to change all of that.
Here’s how you can remove the weather information from the Android 12 At a Glance widget
Now, one of the most common reasons for anybody to customize the At a Glance widget in Android 12 is arguably going to be to remove duplicate information. While the widget is incredibly useful, it isn’t the prettiest one on Android 12. Especially for those who want the new look offered by the Android 12 Weather widget. Which, conversely, does fully support Material You theming.
