Google's Android App Gets New Widget Dedicated For Sports Enthusiasts: Report

In the latest update, Google’s Android app is gearing up to introduce a new Sports widget, a follow-up to the previously released Finance Watchlist. Currently featured in the beta channel for Google app version, this widget aims to enhance sports enthusiasts’ experience by offering quick access to game details.

What to know? As reported by 9To5Google, this new feature showcases teams that users are following, offering information on upcoming, live, or past matches. Each match is displayed in a card format, complete with date, time, scores, and league info. Clicking on these cards leads directly to Google’s comprehensive Knowledge Graph for deeper insights.
