How to get the new Google widgets for iOS 14 on Android

26 mayo, 2021

With the arrival of widgets to iOS 14 came a very visual one from Google. It is striking that, although it is available for Apple’s operating system, Google has not updated its widget for Android, so there is no official way to put it on our home screen.

As usual, third-party developers have taken care of this, and we can now have the Google widget for iOS on Android. It is a very quick and easy process, although we already anticipate that we will need a payment application to achieve it.

With iOS 14 comes a new Google widget, which is generally quite popular. It is a box with the search bar, a shortcut to Google Lens, voice commands and incognito browsing all in one. This widget is not available on Android, but the developers have managed to put a solution to it, porting it together with the rest of the widgets that Google has introduced in Android.

To install these widgets we need KGWT, the best widget app. It is paid, but it is worth every euro and it is a great investment to customize the mobile thoroughly
