The Updated Fitbit App for Android now Includes a Live Wallpaper & a New Widget
Live wallpaper and a new step count progress widget have been added to the Android Fitbit app in a recent version (v4.01).
This upgrade comes after the app was completely redesigned to match the Material You style and was made available to everyone last month.
Fitbit's collection of Android widgets was fairly lacking before the upgrade.
The limited selection didn't quite go with Android's "Material You" style and the complementary widgets that Google extensively released last year.
New Android Fitbit app adds a live wallpaper and a redesigned widget
The updated step count progress widget now more closely resembles the tiles on the Fitbit app for Wear OS, according to reports from the Google News group (Telegram) and 9to5Google.
Additionally, it has a color scheme separate from the dynamic colors and dark/light theme of your system.
Along with a new widget design, the software update now adds a brand-new live wallpaper dubbed "Fitbit Steps Wallpaper."
This wallpaper displays your daily step total in the shape of an oval ring that fills in clockwise, resembling a fluorescent light tube.
The wallpaper is accessible in the "Live Wallpapers" section of the Wallpapers and Style app list and may be set to appear on the lock screen or home screen of your smartphone.
When used with the appropriate clock face and color scheme, the lock screen wallpaper version looks really stunning.
Version 4.01 of the Fitbit app does not appear to have any other changes inside the program aside from the newly created widget and the new live wallpaper.
It is not yet publicly available, despite reports from certain users that they have already downloaded the update.
This indicates that it can take a few days for the update to arrive on your device.
