The new Assistant weather widget has started rolling out to some users

Google seems to have started rolling out the new Assistant weather widget that we spotted in a teardown last month. The widget is reportedly available on Pixel devices running Android 12 beta 5, and it should roll out more widely following the Pixel 6 launch later today.
In case you missed our previous coverage, the new Assistant weather widget was first spotted in a teardown of Google app version 12.36.15 beta last month. Although the widget wasn’t live in that release, we enabled it manually and learned that it would show users the current weather, location, and high/low temperatures. We also learned that the widget would support the system-wide dark theme, but it didn’t support Android 12’s dynamic theming system at the time. Now that the widget has started rolling out to some users, we can confirm more details.
