At its smallest size, the Android 12 version of the Pixel Battery Widget is configured at 2 x 2. As a result, as the only battery keeping the widget that is on a Pixel phone, the widget also seems a bit uneven with many empty space. It would be great to reduce the widget’s footprint if such a thing were possible. Unfortunately, only those using their Pixel on Android 13 Beta 3 can shrink the battery widget to a size of just 2 x 1, which only shows the battery life of the user’s Pixel handset and not their Pixel Buds.
Android 13 Beta 3 allows users to change the battery widget configuration to a tile-like size as small as 2 x 1 and as large as 5 x 1, large enough to show the phone’s remaining battery life, the left Pixel Bud and the right PixelBud. Other options include a 4 x 1 configuration. Finally we hope to see Google adds battery life for Wear OS timepieces to the widget.
