“At a Glance Widget: Detaching from Google Assistant Branding”

In an intriguing turn of events, the At a Glance Widget homescreen widget, a staple on all Android devices, is no longer branded as an extension of Google Assistant.

The widget underwent a redesign in October and was formerly known as “Assistant At a Glance,” with the description crediting Google Assistant for “[showing] you what you need, right when you need it.”

Following the latest Google app beta (version 15.11), the term “Assistant” has been removed from the forefront, and “At a Glance” is now attributed directly to the widget’s functionality. Similarly, the settings page featuring on/off toggles has been updated accordingly.

During the announcement of the Gemini app, Google had listed At a Glance as a feature “powered directly by Google Assistant.” This recent change suggests that the term “Google Assistant” might be phased out. Previous findings hinted at Gemini’s potential expansion to headphones.

However, there appears to be a bug in today’s update, causing the three-dot overflow button on the widget to become invisible. Nevertheless, users can still tap the space to the left of the weather to access the menu.
