The Google Weather app is undoubtedly among the best. It has a clean design, shows all the important information, including wind, rain and sunrise / sunset times, and is free. But how can you get it on your phone because it's not listed on the Google Play store?
Getting Google weather app on your phone is as easy as downloading an app from Play Store, but the process is completely different. To get started, open the Google app, which comes pre-installed on most Android phones. If you do not have it for any reason you can download it here.
The next step is to write "weather" in the Google search box, after which the weather information for your city will appear. You will probably see a box titled "Get access to weather directly from your home page." If you do so, tap "Add" and then press "Add" again when a popup window appears. Then, Google Weather App is automatically added to the Home screen.
If you do not see "Accessing weather directly from your homepage", tap the icon in the upper right corner of the weather widget (three vertical dots), select the "Add a home screen" option and exit the process by pressing on "Add" when the popup window is displayed. The Google weather app will automatically be placed on your home screen.
Step-by-step instructions on getting the Google weather app on your phone:
- Open the Google app on your phone.
- Type "weather" in the Google search box.
