    Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, that's just part of the Pixel Launcher that you can't get rid of. As mustang7757 mentioned, if you don't like it, install a 3rd party launcher like Nova. If you really like the Pixel Launcher look except for the At A Glance date/temp, then try Rootless Launcher.

    Is it? Or is it a widget? (I found it as a widget on my P2, and I'm using it in Nova.)

    If it's a widget, it can just be deleted from the screen (after long-pressing it).

    It's not a widget on pixel devices, it's built into the OS. You can't delete it unless you use a different launcher.

    Wow that's one of the best things about the pixel IMO. This is probably the first time I've heard of anyone not liking that feature.

    Don't own a Pixel...yet...but I hate anything on my screen that I do not specifically put there! If I want the OEM to tell me what I must have on my screen then I might as well get an iPhone! Granted, I always use Nova myself, but this should not be the way to clean up your screen. I think I just got turned off from even considering a Pixel. SMH

    But it's just a launcher, much in the same way Samsung's One UI is their launcher. It's their idea of how a launcher should look. You can always change that look with a 3rd party launcher -- that's the beauty of Android. No one's forcing you to stick with the stock launcher (unlike with iPhones).

    Whenever I get a Pixel, I just install Nova. Problem solved. It's still a great phone with a superb camera.

    I was able to get rid of the temp and time on my Pixel 4a home screen. Now I just have the day and date. I spent alot of time on this and did a multiple of actions. Don't ask me what exactly I did. I'll try to retrace my steps. I even have a thread on this.

    Long-press an empty part of the homescreen, tap Homescreen Settings, then At a Glance, then turn off all the toggles there.

    That did work...temporarily as i reported in my thread. The temp can back after an hour or so. A few days later I was doing more exploring in settings and in other areas. I found another reference to weather. I turned it off and now temp is gone. It's now been several days and it's still gone.
    I've did some of the same things to my wife's phone but haven't succeeded to get rid of the temp.
    Now I just need to remember the other step I did.

    Hmm, didn't realize that would only work temporarily.

    Well, you know they say "Google settings work in mysterious ways."
