Google has given access to new widgets for iOS 16 lock screen

For the iOS 16 Lock Screen, a number of Google widgets have begun to roll out, including well-known programs like Gmail and Google News.
Google has also announced new features that would allow users to add widgets directly to their iPhones’ lock screens before Apple released iOS 16. Google users may now add widgets for popular apps like Gmail and Google News to their lock screens, but widgets for Search, Maps, and Calendar are still not available.

The new Gmail widget comes in three sizes, an inline shape, and a rectangular shape. The first two widgets, according to The Verge, should appear below the clock on the lock screen, while the inline widget should appear above as a line of text. Condensed headlines are added to a rectangular widget on the Lock Screen by the Google News widget. The company has previously said that after iOS 16 was released, it will help users customize the Lock Screen.

Many Google apps will soon have lock screen widgets, the company claims. The first thing you see when you pick up your phone is the lock screen. You can access your favorite Google features and even get certain updates on your Lock Screen with only one tap after unlocking your smartphone.

The Maps Frequent Trips widget allows users to view predicted travel times and real-time traffic data for destinations like home and work right on their lock screen. They can utilize the Maps Search widget to locate the restaurants, shops, and other locations they prefer to visit nearby.
