The Android 14 QPR1 beta program allows Pixel users to test what will be the next Pixel Feature Drop due out in December. One of the features that has appeared in Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2 recently released by Google is the integration of the weather with the Clock app and with Clock widgets. Weather data, such as the day’s high and low temperatures along with the current temperature and current conditions, will be shown in the Clock tab and when using Clock widgets.
The weather will be displayed for the cities that you have the Clock app set to. First, though, you must have Android 14 QPR1 beta 2 installed. If you do, go to the Clock app’s settings and toggle on “local weather on clock.” But here’s the thing folks; because Google is using a server-side update or requires a future update to the Clock app, not everyone with the QPR1 Beta 2 update has the “local weather on clock” option on their Clock app’s setting page. For example, my Pixel 6 Pro running Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2 does not have the toggle yet.
To check the settings page on your Pixel’s Clock app, open the Clock app and tap the three-dot menu icon in the upper right of the screen. Tap on Settings and look for the “local weather on clock” toggle. To reiterate, if you don’t have it on your Pixel and your phone is running Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2, you’ll have to wait for Google to take some sort of action first.
Note that the weather information is actually provided by a separate app called “Weather” (package name and not from the Google Clock app itself. This lets the Google Clock app show weather information without requesting the location permission. pic.twitter.com/uCYn6sS9P1

Just remember that once you join the QPR1 beta program, you won’t be able to rollback to Android 14 without having to perform a factory reset. Once the December Feature Drop is released, you will be able to leave the beta and return to receiving stable Android 14 updates for a limited time.
