    Default Google now widget

    I just updated Google now. Google now now says you can add widget to a home screen or your lock screen. How do I add a widget to lock screen?

    It doesn't seem to work properly within WidgetLocker. It only shows a 4x1 section of the entire 4x4 widget.

    Well that's just dumb. I'll actually update it and try to tinker. There may be a way to do it, just like weather is removable.

    Edit: only shows 4x1 on my regular home unless more cards come up, like traffic and stuff. Widget locker should be fine then.



    Normal on my regular home.

    I'll leave it on my home for a bit, see if it updates. But it's definitely different for me.

    Edit: works fine/as expected on my Nexus 7. JB Lockscreen widget works.

    Easiest way is to find an empty spot on one of your pages, hold down and switch widget option, then search for Google now widget and hold that down then you can place it on the page and resize it if you want. If you need step by step screenshots let me know. Easiest way to know is, it works the same way as other widgets.

    Mine works just as expected. Android just keeps on getting better and innovating. Can't wait to see what the Google x phone is going to introduce.
