The latest Pixel At a Glance features are arriving for more users

What you need to know

  • Google previously teased new features arriving for the Pixel At a Glance widget.
  • Some users already received some features such as Earthquake alerts.
  • More Pixel users have started receiving the latest At a Glance features, including Safety check and Connected devices.

Pixel owners are receiving a few new features for the At a Glance widget. These features were previously announced with the March 2022 Feature Drop, alongside a new battery widget and more.

While some users were sporadically receiving earthquake alerts and “Safety check” features on their Pixel devices, they did not show up for everyone. However, it appears more users are receiving the alerts (per 9to5Google), along with the new “Connected devices” feature.

A cursory glance at my Pixel 6 Pro indeed shows that these features are now live. Each new feature shows up in the At a Glance settings. As a quick refresher, Safety check connects to the Personal Safety app and will display the countdown on the At a Glance widget when you turn the feature on. Earthquake alerts will notify you when an earthquake larger than magnitude 4.5 is detected nearby. The Connected devices feature shows the connection status and battery percentage for Bluetooth devices.

Alas, when connected to the Galaxy Buds 2, the At a Glance widget on my device shows that the earbuds are connected and displays their battery percentage. I have not had a chance to test out Earthquake alerts, although living in Seattle, it’s only a matter of time. I also have not managed to make the Safety check countdown work but will continue to test the feature.
