Pixel Climate widget is damaged with 100 diploma temperature

Southwest has facing hot record with temperatures of 100 degrees since the middle of this week and is expected to continue through Labor Day. In examining the Pixel Weather app over the past few days, it became clear that the main widget was not properly designed to show temperatures over 100.

Last year, Android 12 on Pixel phones introduce your partner a fun Material You widget that’s a bit info dense and features a Dynamic Color theme to match your wallpaper. As of today, they remain exclusive to Google phones even on other Android 12/13 devices. (The same can be said about specific YouTube Music widget it’s quite convenient.)

The largest widget configuration shows the current temperature and conditions, today’s high and low, and a two-day forecast. Another important part is looking forward to the next four hours. When it’s over 100, the degree symbol is hilariously pushed to the next line. This moves the visual representation down and causes the increase in time to disappear.

As you can see below, everything works normally when it’s only two digits, but three visually spoils everything. Adjusting the system Display and text sizes don’t seem to make any difference.

It’s definitely still more than usable, but exposes an edge case of a design that’s no longer a remote possibility in this day and age. Google is expected to address the 100-degree temperature with a future update to the Google app, which supports the weather widget.

Speaking of fixes, there are still people who occasionally run into issues with widgets not updating without a tap unlocking the full experience. It would also be great if it was finally resolved.

Anyway, hope you keep cool.
