Android 15 Is Making Widget Addition Easier with the New Add Button

Android 15, the upcoming iteration of Google’s mobile operating system, promises to introduce several enhancements to the user experience, especially within the Pixel Launcher.

One of the standout features is the new “Add” button, which aims to simplify the process of adding widgets to the home screen.

This small but significant change is part of a broader update that includes faster animations, improved widget recommendations, and enhanced app options.

Traditionally, adding widgets in Android involves a somewhat cumbersome process of dragging and dropping from the widget picker to the home screen.

This can be awkward and imprecise, particularly for users with smaller screens or those who struggle with the drag-and-drop interface.

This button appears in the widget picker interface, allowing users to simply tap to add a widget directly to their home screen without the need for dragging.
