Google's Pixel Launcher Now Shows Moon Icon At Night Instead Of Sun Icon

 
Google's Pixel Launcher Now Shows Moon Icon At Night Instead Of Sun Icon

Google made two launchers for their two smartphones, one is Nexus and the other one is Pixel. We are talking about their Pixel Launcher, which is a part of the experience their new smartphone Google Pixel. The launcher has circular icons and a redesigned app drawer, the launcher conveniently displays the weather. However, there was one gripe with said widget that has finally been resolved.





The weather information is retrieved directly from and updates with the Google app.  The weather icon 
shows rain, clouds, snow, and more depends on the weather condition. The icon displayed in the Pixel Launcher gets updated by the one in the feed’s corresponding weather card and in web searches. 

Previously, the default icon for normal, ‘clear’ weather conditions was a yellow sun. This was the case even during the night.

Many users are now reporting that they are finally seeing a moon icon next to the temperature. The change is likely a server-side update, so having the latest beta version of the Google app does not guarantee the update and the Pixel Launcher (7.1.1-3359438) remains unchanged.
This is a minor fix, but nevertheless one that shows Google’s attention to minute details.
