Google Calendar

Google Calendar is an excellent piece of software that you can add to your Google Pixel 3.

Google Calendar has a clean user interface for easily managing your days, weeks, months, and even years. However, you don’t always have to pop into Google Calendar to manage your upcoming events and days — the app comes with its own widget so that you can access these things straight from your home screen. You won’t have to open the Google Calendar app ever again! Google Calendar even gives you all different types of grid sizes that you can choose from so that you can make the widget fit alongside the other apps on your screen.

AccuWeather

AccuWeather comes in as next on our list, an app that almost everybody should have on their phones to better watch the forecast. With something like AccuWeather, you can see your daily temperatures, highs and lows, whether snow or rain is in the forecast, and the app will even provide you with weather advisories when adverse conditions are on their way. AccuWeather even gives you access to a radar so that you can see weather systems in real time. That’s all information available from the app itself; however, if you’re just looking for highlights for your commute, AccuWeather does include a widget that you can place on your home screen for quick weather access on temperatures and forecasts.
