Google Now Weather with Frog Illustration Making Weather Info More Creativity

Google Now is making the Weather card more functional and interesting, they tested rolled out the New Weather Home screen Shortcut to some users on January, the most interesting thing is the Weather Frog illustration, if you search for different places over the world, there are different illustrations showing the local weather status, day and night mode, even change in different hours, like dinner time, driving to work mornings, afternoon playing time, etc.

some didn’t have the chance to meet the weather frog, but now with the Google Now App version, you can add this cute weather reporter by this way. First make sure your phone language settings is English, and you have enabled the Weather Card in Google Now settings, also you need to turn on the location setting. then tap the weather card in Google Now or search “weather”, “weather tomorrow” in the home screen search bar, then tap the weather details on the search results, you should see the new “Google Weather” page, you can check out the feature weather by slide to right, up to ten days. If you want to quickly visit this Weather page, you can slidingDrawer and tap “add to home screen”. a weather shortcut will appear on your Google now launcher.

Here is some beautiful illustrations I collected, of course, the leading role is this little Frog.

Google Now Weather Frog rainy Night

Why Google use Frog? I think it is because frogs is very sensitive to weather changes, and in some old legends, North and South American Indian shaman link frogs and rain, they believe frogs can control weather, though we know that is just opposite. however this Weather Frog just continues the consistent innovation of Google style, I hope we can get a widget of weather in the future.
You can get the google app apk by this link: Download link of Google App apk files.

    If writing in english is too difficult, you should probably write in your native language instead. If english is your native language, then you shouldn’t be writing articles for the world to see with such a poor grasp of english sentence structure.

      He’s trying, many people in other countries don’t have the English education we take for granted because it is our mother tongue. I wouldn’t want to write in his language! I applaud him for his effort & I didn’t have any trouble understanding him. A little encouragement goes a long way to helping people be the best they can be. πŸ™‚

  • Mary K Simpson-Smith

    I love this little guy so much that I take screenshots of his different antics and have made an album in my gallery just for him! Can’t wait for the season to change to see what he does in the Fall and Winter! Thank you for this whimsical feature! πŸ€—πŸΈ

    • momtothreebeagles πŸ‘

      You too, huh? I thought I was the only one! My friend, who is in a different city, and I trade our screenshots each day. He’s busy, our little froggie guy! πŸ™‚ Love him. <3

      • Mary K Simpson-Smith

        I just now saw your reply, Beagle Mom! How fun that he captures the imaginations of others like us. Thanks for sharing. I wish he would rake some Fall leaves or carve a pumpkin or do something specifically related to this season!
        God bless you and your fur babies and your fellow frog-loving buddy in the other city!

    • Hi, did you get the Google Now on home screen, I mean slide to left to open Google now page function?
      Or you can try this way: search weather in Google app, did you get the weather info of your location?

  • Thomas Glen Stukel

    I love this little frog so much! I try to do what he’s doing when I have a free day/night πŸ™‚ Thank you whoever makes these for us! Xoxo

  • Brian S

    where did the weather frog go? He’s not around anymore… πŸ™ We really liked him. Please bring him back! Thanks

    • If you search “weather” in Google app, can you see the weather report info or just search results? check location settings, see if Google can’t get your position.

      • Brian S

        Thanks, got him back🐸🐸🐸🐸

  • Nancy

    Can understand if there’s a weather emergency, but lately on most of the cities I check, the weather “Froggie” is not showing up. My grandchildren & I love seeing him and get disappointed when he’s not appearing on the screen. This just started a few weeks ago, & is very aggravating. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, we miss him!!!

    • Maybe you need to update Google App ? I can still see the frog.

  • Laura

    I love my weather frog! Just got the Pixel and this is a charming feature

  • Karen Makley

    Whoever is responsible for this THANK YOU! The frog illustrations are adorable!

  • Jean Choquette

    Thank you
