Widgets, widgets, widgets. Has there ever been an Android feature so full of promise that’s gone unloved by Google for so very long?
Okay, so maybe there has been — erm, lots of times, actually. But even so, Android’s widgets system is a perfect example of an exceptional advantage that Google basically buried, abandoned, and left on the brink of extinction up until its sudden revival in this year’s upcoming Android 12 release. (And that revival, by the way, is happening for no apparent reason whatsoever. Just a totally random, unprompted change of heart after a decade of indifference. Riiiiiiiiight.)
