Until recently, I had the combined date / weather widget from Google on my home screen. Clicking on it opened either the calendar, or the weather frog app.

A few days ago, I noticed it was replaced with the Google assistant 'quick overview' widget, and I can't find the original one in the list of widgets.

Did Google remove that widget altogether, or is there a way to get it back?

I did get an update to Android 13 recently, but I'm not sure if that's related.

Yes, Google removed the combined date and weather widget from Android 13. The widget was replaced with the Google Assistant Quick Overview widget.

There are a few ways to get the combined date and weather widget back:

  • Use a third-party launcher such as Nova Launcher or Lawnchair Launcher. These launchers allow you to add widgets that are not included in the stock Android launcher.
  • Use a third-party weather app such as Pixel Weather Widget & Themes. These apps typically have their own widgets that you can add to your home screen.
  • Use a custom widget pack. There are many custom widget packs available on the Google Play Store. Some of these widget packs include a combined date and weather widget.

To add a widget using a third-party launcher, long-press on an empty space on your home screen and select "Widgets". Then, select the widget from the list of widgets.

To add a widget using a third-party weather app, open the app and go to the settings menu. Then, look for a section labeled "Widgets" or "Home screen widgets". Select the widget that you want to add to your home screen.

To add a widget using a custom widget pack, open the app and select the widget that you want to add to your home screen. Then, follow the instructions that are provided by the app.

I hope this helps!
