Now that Google has regained hope with tablets, it has put its batteries into action to upgrade its mobile operating system, implementing important new features for the version of Android 13 for tablets and adapting its own applications to large screens.
The company’s latest app to reach Android tablets is the app google timeand it does so a week after Apple’s Weather app announced its arrival on iPad with iPadOS 16.
Google Time is coming to tablets
google time it came to Android phones in 2016, so we had to wait six years for Google to bring this “app” to tablets. I put “application” in quotes because it’s not really an application, since the Weather app is integrated into the Google app.
When checking the weather in the Google app, in its first result we see a Web application which allows us to access a more complete weather forecast, showing the forecast for today, tomorrow and the next ten days with its different statistics. Now this web app also appears in the Google app for tablets, allowing us to add direct access to Google Weather on our tablet’s home screen.
The Weather app started appearing on the tablets of the first users via version 18.104.22.168 of the Google app, and its developers didn’t get too excited about adapting the Google Weather interface to large screens. tablets. The interface is the same as on mobile
As we see in the screenshots, the Google Weather app on tablets continues to show three tabs to see the forecast for today, tomorrow and 10 days and you will have to swipe up or down to see all data and statistics in a vertical list. The first time you access the new weather forecast on your tablet, a prompt appears asking you to add the shortcut to your tablet’s desktop.
