For the past few years, almost all Android phones are using Google Discover, a personalized news service that we can access by sliding our desktop to the left.
Unknown to many is that this app puts a weather forecast on a small card at the top of this section.
When we click on it, we open a search in a web browser where it is shown by the local weather, able to switch between today's and 10-day weather forecasts in the near future.
It works and it's useful … what if we could use it as an app?
How to use Google weather service
If we find this function interesting we can run it like an app without installing anything. The steps we must take are:
- We open access.
- Click on the weather card.
- To the right of the place has an icon with three straight points, click on it.
- We select an add-on to the home screen.
- We drag an icon to the site where we want the request.
The good thing is that once we do this shortcut will behave like an app, not as a web page.
If we jump to the right we can see the forecast for the next day or 10 days and if we use the search engine up we can see the weather anywhere in the world. We also have a menu on the left side for changing some features.
If we don't need advanced forecast and want it to be on any Android phone, this weather app is enough for any user.
