Google invades iOS 16 lock screens


We can interact with Google applications on a new interface.

From September 12, iOS 16 can be downloaded for all compatible devices, one of the biggest innovations of which is the fully customizable lock screen. Of course, this was unthinkable until now without a jailbreak on iPhones. However, Apple is finally catching up with Android in this regard as well, with three-dimensional images, widgets and multiple fonts, the locked displays of iPhones become unique.

Since the system has been available in beta for several months, the biggest software developers have had time to test the functionality of the new system, and at the same time as the official release of iOS 16, Google also announced that several lock screen widgets will be introduced through its most popular applications in the coming weeks.

Among them, you will find a shortcut for incognito browsing, you can immediately start playing Chrome’s dino game if the Internet goes down, and of course you can start searching in seconds by clicking on the classic magnifying glass icon. In addition, the Gmail app also receives a lot of attention, as it will soon offer more widgets; we will be able to choose to display the number of new messages next to the date, or to show in detail which categories of e-mails are waiting to be opened.

Last but not least, Google Maps and Google News also get additional widgets, so the most important news and our favorite restaurants can all be reached with one click.
