Last December, Google started rolling out a dedicated “Weather” icon on Pixel phones and tablets in the app drawer. However, this shortcut has been removed recently.

The “Weather” shortcut appeared through a server-side update on most Pixel devices. The circular icon depicted the sun and a cloud, like the “Add to Home Screen” shortcut but without the Google app badge in the corner.

Earlier this month, this shortcut still appeared on newly set Pixel phones. Recently, the Google Weather app icon has disappeared from the app drawer.

If you had previously placed it on your home screen, the Google app will replace it.

This rollback is quite unfortunate as it could have been a step towards making the weather app a standalone experience separate from the search function.

A standalone app could benefit from faster updates and more features, including additional home screen widgets.
