Google Calendar

If you need a way to easily manage your schedule, upcoming events, and activities, then Google Calendar will be right up your alley. It’s likely already loaded on your smartphone as an Android pre-load app, but if you don’t have it, you can grab it from the Google Play Store for free. Google Calendar is one of the cleanest interfaces on the market 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 — Google has actually built a widget that comes with the app automatically 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.

Coming up next on our list, we’re looking at Spotify. If you love music, this is an app that you have to have on your Google Pixel 3 XL. As one of the biggest streaming services in the music industry right now, Spotify gives you instant access to millions of different songs. Think of a song that you want to play, and chances are, Spotify will have it. Unfortunately, when you’re on the go — such as driving in the car — it’s frustrating trying to get your music to just play. However, with the included Spotify widget that you can place on your Pixel 3 XL home screen, press the Play button to instantly immerse yourself in your favorite tunes. You can play and pause music directly from the widget, and you can even skip or play a previous track.
