Google app is getting a new update through Play Store, which brings a Finance Watchlist stocks widget and some improvements to deliver the next level of experience.
The new beta update of the Google app can be identified through version 22.214.171.124. At present, in addition to the features in the new update, bugs are also included and once the testing is done, the company will release the stable build.
Google App Finance Watchlist Widget
What is Finance Watchlist Widget? You can create it by adding two weather widgets, the search bar, At a Glance, and Sound Search. It lets you create a watchlist to “Follow Stocks, indexes, and crypto in Google Search”.
It is understandable why the Google Search application is used to provide this service since there is no financial application. Currently, it is available with Google App and reports reveal that Google News would be another candidate.
If we talk about the Google App Finance Widget, there is a stock chart at the top. Other information such as current price, symbol, and profit/loss with corresponding arrows mentioned in the widget.
And if you expand the widget to full width, then other stocks will be displayed in the list or side by side. You can also customize Featured Investments.
Furthermore, you can choose the Top mover with the biggest gain or loss or select specific stocks to fix. There’s also a Watchlist Sorting option that gives you several options including Name, Symbol, Day % change, Ascending, and Descending.
