5 Best Widgets For Pixel 3 To Customize Your Home Screen

So you got a new Google Pixel 3, and now you’re ready to start customizing the smartphone to really make it “you.” There’s a lot of ways that you could go about doing this — you could use icon packs

It goes without saying, the Galaxy Note 9 has an absolutely massive display. It has a beautiful and vivid 6.4-inch Infinity Display, which gives you tons of room for customizing your home screen — there’s a whole lot more that you can place on here than, say, a 5.5-inch display. So what do you customize your Galaxy Note 9’s screen with? You have all of the standard options — custom icon packs, custom launchers, skins, and more; however, another way that you can customize your Galaxy Note 9 is through widgets. Widgets offer some extra quick access functionality right on the home screen so that you don’t have to open an app to use it.

So if you’re ready to take full control over your home screen, then be sure to follow along with us below. We’ve assembled the five best widgets for your Galaxy Note 9 to make your smartphone really stand out and be an image of who you are! Let’s dive right in.

Google Calendar

If you need an easy way to manage your schedule and upcoming activities, Google Calendar is an excellent app to have on hand. With a clean user interface, you can easily manage your days, weeks, months, and even years. However, you don’t always have to pop into Google Calendar to manage your activities — the app comes with its own widget so that you can access your upcoming activities straight from your home screen. You won’t have to open the Google Calendar app ever again! Google Calendar 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. Since you have the bigger Galaxy Note 9 display, you might even be able to fit a larger calendar grid size on your screen.

Spotify

Coming up next, we’re looking at Spotify. If you do any sort of music streaming, Spotify is one that you likely already have on your smartphone. Download it on your Galaxy Note 9, and you instantly have access to millions of different songs. Almost any song you can think of can be search for and played instantly; however, sometimes when you’re on the go, it’s frustrating trying to get your music to just play. You don’t really care what it plays, but you just want something to play. Luckily, with the included Spotify widget that you can place on your smartphone, you can just press the Play button to instantly get started. You can play and pause music directly from the widget, and you can even skip or play a previous track.

AccuWeather

AccuWeather is another great choice for those looking for daily weather updates, especially with winter now in full force. AccuWeather will show you your daily temperatures, highs and lows, whether it’s going to snow or rain, and will even provide you with weather advisories, if it’s applicable, at least. Not only that, but AccuWeather even gives you access to a radar so that you can see systems in real time. That’s all information available from the app itself, but AccuWeather does include a widget that you can place on your home screen for quick weather access on temperatures and forecasts.

Clock

Google Clock comes in as the second choice on our list, providing you with a nice and clean way that you can place a large digital clock on your screen. The app itself provides you with a bunch of functionality, but the included widget is easily the best part of Google Clock. The widget also allows you quick access to alarm clocks, timers, and more! Depending on the grid size that you choose, you can even manage multiple timers and alarm clocks.

Google News

Google News comes in as first up on our list, and is an excellent way to really customize your home screen with easy news access. There’s a lot of clutter out there as far as news goes, and unfortunately, the news has a way of keeping your attention on things that really don’t matter. With Google News, you can place a widget on your home screen that only immerses you in the highlights that you need to know.
