Apple launched iOS 14 to the public a few days ago and Google was quick to bring its widget to the screen of iPhone users.
The widget is simple, but efficient. It has the possibility of Searching on the smaller widget and gives you features like Google Lens, voice search and anonymous search on the larger widget.
How to activate the Google Widget on your iPhone with iOS 14
- Download the Google app from the App Store
- Press (long) on an empty space on your screen
- Click the “+” button in the upper left corner (or right, depending on the iPhone)
- Click on the “Google” app
- Choose the widget you want and its size
- Drag it to the location you want
You will also be able to set Google Chrome as your default browser. That is, when you click on a link, iOS 14 will not open the link on safari. Instead, it will open in the browser you define.
To activate Google Chrome as a pre-defined browser, do the following:
- Access settings
- Find Google Chrome in apps
- Sets as default browser
- It's done
IOS 14 is a dramatic change in the design of the iPhone's operating system. It remains for us to know what kind of widgets we will have in the future.
It is guaranteed that the developers will fight for their widget to be exposed on your iPhone, hopefully it will be a little better than some that we have on Android.
In short, Google wants to take over your iPhone in a simple way. The truth is that the widget that Google brought us is really interesting. Especially with the addition of Google Lens in one click.
