    On a recent trip, I noticed that the displayed Weather-at-a-glance temperature was markedly warmer than realty would have reflected. Took a closer look and it was showing the "back home" temperature, versus my current location. After a lot of futzing, I discovered that tapping the displayed temperature (seemingly) allowed me to change to the current location. Great.

    Midway on the trip home, I tapped the temperature again, and the displayed WAAG temp began to reflect that location. Great.

    But then when I got home, the tap the temperature "trick" wouldn't change the reflected WAAG location. After about 45 minutes of trying and researching, all of a sudden it worked as it should have.

    What's the "right every time" way to have WAAG reflect where I am, versus some fixed point?

    BTW, even restarting the phone wouldn't fix this when the problem was happening. And the two times I had the problem, I was on wifi, switched to data and that didn't fix anything, went back to wifi, struggled, and it eventually got set. The "midway home" time I describe above, I was on data, not wifi, and it changed correctly immediately.

    Which phone? Are you talking about the At A Glance widget in the Pixel Launcher?

    It's a Pixel 3a, and the thing I'm talking about is what appears on the home screen (if enabled) with the day, date, and weather.

    Go to Settings>Apps, tap Google, then Permissions>Location. Is it set to "Allow all the time," or one of the other options?

    Also, are you using a VPN or connected to public wi-fi when this happens?

    Location permission is set to "all the time." And the wi-fi in question both times was a password-protected wi-fi at a private residence.

    What if you go to Google Weather and refresh the data there?

    Oddly, that's what I have tried - I think clicking on the temperature in the weather-at-a-glance widget takes you to google weather. And it didn't work when I got home in the original post. I don't know what the problem was/is. I just tried that now, and when I tapped the temperature, the app launched and it was about a quarter-second delay where it looked like it was "divining" my location, which it then correctly picked. Although my current location is the same location I was in when I got it to work the other day. So hard to say

    Just to be sure, your Location options are on in the system settings as well, right?
