Full Story

The Android 14 QPR1 beta program is giving Pixel users a sneak peek at the upcoming Pixel Feature Drop set to release in December. A notable feature in the recently released Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2 is the integration of weather information into the Clock app and Clock widgets. This means that users can now view weather data like high and low temperatures, current temperature, and current conditions directly in the Clock tab and when using Clock widgets. The weather displayed corresponds to the cities selected in the Clock app’s settings.

However, not everyone with the QPR1 Beta 2 update can access this feature. Google may require a server-side update or a future Clock app update for the option to appear in the Clock app’s settings. So, it’s possible that even if you have Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2 installed, you may not see the toggle for “local weather on clock” yet.

To check if you have the feature available, open the Clock app on your Pixel device and tap the three-dot menu icon in the upper-right corner of the screen. From there, select Settings and look for the “local weather on clock” toggle. Remember, if you don’t see this option on your Pixel running Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2, it’s likely that Google needs to take further action to enable it for you.

Android expert Mishaal Rahman shared a tweet showcasing the results of the weather integration with the Clock app. Rahman also clarified that the weather information comes from a separate app called “Weather” and not directly from the Google Clock app. This allows the Clock app to display weather without needing location permissions.

It’s important to note that this feature is distinct from the new Google Weather page being rolled out to Android users currently.

If you’re interested in joining the Android 14 QPR1 beta program, you can visit or click on the provided link. On the page, look for the “view your eligible devices” button and select it. Follow the given instructions to opt into the beta program. Once you’re enrolled, you’ll receive an over-the-air update by navigating to Settings > System > System update.

Keep in mind that joining the QPR1 beta program means you won’t be able to revert back to Android 14 without performing a factory reset. However, once the December Feature Drop is released, you’ll have the option to leave the beta and return to receiving stable Android 14 updates for a limited time.
