Google search bar widget now has feed sub-bar in beta

You won’t need to have your Google feed plastering up a whole page of your home screen assortment anymore if you need just a quick, one-line update on the most important information in your life right now, you may be able to do that with the latest version of the Google app beta ( Well, if you’re lucky — only some users have reported getting this feature so far.

If you head into the settings for the app, check to see if there’s a new section called “Widget,” wedged between “Screen search” and “Autocomplete”. Turn the feed on, then check your homescreen and the Google search bar. Under it will pop up a feed feature, such as your commute, the weather or sports scores. You can make it disappear with a tap of the “X” or a swipe of the card on your feed.

If you don’t have the feature yet, but do want it, cross your fingers and hope this gets passed down to the final build.
