The battery Widget on Pixel smartphones is evolving and now shows how much time you have left before going flat. An evolution that makes it more and more essential for Pixel smartphone owners.
Introduced at the beginning of the year, the Battery Widget is a delight for Pixel smartphone owners. It has improved over the months to become a staple. He will soon receive a more than interesting update.
Indeed, with Android 13, this Widget will now display the time you have left before running out of battery. A small development that should allow you to better manage your charging cycle.
The Battery Widget continues to improve over the months
This new version will be available on Android 13 but beta testers can already take advantage of it, as indicated by the 9to5Google site. To do this, you need to update the settings in version v22.214.171.1246812811.sr. But beware, not all users have access to it yet. We suspect that it will be included as standard in Pixel smartphones that will be on Android 13.

The Widget has the particularity of being completely customizable in its form. Thus, you can display your battery horizontally or vertically. However, the displayed time only works for smartphone. Other terminals, such as Pixel Buds or connected watches, are still satisfied with the percentage only.
This little Widget appeared last March and has seen many improvements since then. In June, users were finally able to change its size and display Wear OS devices and connected headphones. No doubt that Google will continue to improve it in the future, so essential has it become for users.
As a reminder, the next generation of Pixel smartphones will be announced on October 6. Google will unveil the Pixel 7 as well as the Pixel 7 Pro. We know a little about their characteristics thanks to leaks, and these should not sign a major revolution compared to the Pixel 6. These will be the very first devices that will officially welcome Android 13, and therefore the first to have the new version of this Widgets.
