Pixel 6: Major ‘At a Glance’ upgrade coming up!

Google, News, Pixel

Google announced a major upgrade to At a Glance with the launch of Pixel 6, which it has been teasing since the Material You reel debuted at I/O in May. And Now, ‘At a Glace’ is getting even more features.

Current Features of the ‘ At a Glace’

  • Commute & Time to Leave: See traffic and ETA
  • Weather: Current weather info
  • Alerts: Severe weather alerts
  • Travel: Flights from Gmail
  • Upcoming: Calendar events and reminders
  • Work Profile: Calendar events and reminders from work profile

Thanks to 9To5google’s Decomplied APK insights, we get a closer look at what we can expect from the upcoming upgrade.

The Android System Intelligence app (previously known as Device Personalization Services) for the Pixel 6 received an update (version S9 -> S10), which revealed a slew of strings describing new “smartspace”— which is how the Google app refers to At a Glance— capabilities.

Upcoming features

  • At a store: Shopping lists and Google Pay rewards cards when you’re in supported stores
  • Bedtime: Your upcoming bedtime from the Clock app
  • Connected devices: Connection status and battery info for your Bluetooth devices
  • Doorbell: Show who’s at the door when your doorbell rings
  • Fitness: Activity info from your fitness app
  • Flashlight: Reminder when flashlight is on
  • Safety check: Safety check countdown from the Personal Safety app
  • Timer & stopwatch: Timer and stopwatch info from the Clock app
  • at a glance upcoming feature
  • at a glance upcoming feature

This new upgrade will allow more app integration with ‘At a glance. It will include features like  Personal Safety and Google Clock, the ability to see fitness activity reminders of the Flashlights, and so on.

While these features are not live yet, only glances of the upgrade could be seen on the Pixel 6. It’s possible that new ASI releases will bring it to other Pixel phones. For faster updates, Google is likely to move At a Glance to the Android System Intelligence app, and it makes thematic sense to have these upcoming smart features alongside Now Playing and Live Translate.
