- The UI redesign for Weather in the Google app is starting to rollout on Android phones, bringing it into the Material You group.
- The redesign tosses away the old, clunky three tabs for a cleaner, bolder single viewing with a Now, hourly forecast, and 10-day outlook scrollable display.
- Google rolled out the revamped UI on its Pixel Fold and Pixel Tablet devices earlier this year a month after launch.
It looks like Android phones are starting to receive their Weather UI redesign in the Google app. The rollout was brought to Mishaal Rahman’s attention on X after he received several reports from users about it.
The Weather “app” is essentially tucked into the overall Google app on Android. The redesign swaps out the old three-tabbed view for “Today,” “Tomorrow,” and “10-day outlook” for a single streamlined view.
The redesign fits well with Google’s Material You design language that it features throughout Android and its own apps.
Most of what users are now finding calls back to some early teasers a Google member posted during the spring. A “Now” section welcomes users with quick bits of information such as the current temperature and an hourly forecast followed by the 10-day outlook.
One aspect that’s shown up is the addition of a weather warning for users in between the Now section and the hourly forecast. Looks like this could help those glancing at the weather for any trouble before heading out.
